Seafood and plantain. (Must try!!!!)


A few days ago, I was with my friend at the grocery store and we where trying to figure out what to make for dinner. I saw some shrimps, scallops and immediately wanted something with seafood. I took all the ingredients home and started playing around in my kitchen as per usual. i had this bright idea to make something with plantains maybe like a refined ‘gizdodo’ This was the result. It was sooooo good, I made it a second time just to get the measurements right for this post. Let me know what you think if you do try it.

Serves 3

2 pounds shrimps
1 pound scallops
1/2 cup white wine
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon garlic mashed
Sprinkle of parsley
Sprinkle of crushed red peppers(optional)
Salt and black pepper to taste
2 ripe plantains, fried.

Clean and de-vein shrimps and set aside. In a pan add butter and garlic, sautée for 2 minutes. Add white wine and allow to sautée for another 2 minutes. Add shrimps and scallops and cook on each side for 1-3 minutes depending on size. Add salt, crushed red pepper (for a little heat), black pepper and parsley; stir. Serve on top fried plantains.

Hope you do try it!! It was awesome and so simple!!! It takes less than 10 minutes if your shrimps are already cleaned.

Till next time
