As a millennial Latina, I was brought up to entertain during any time of year. Even if it is for a home visit. You always make sure you put out the best appetizers to pair with anything. I loved how easy these were to make so if you don’t have that much time these would be a perfect mix. Especially, with Summer right around the corner. You don’t want to spend the whole day or evening cooking in the kitchen.

Spicy SHrimp For Plantains

First, you want to make sure you wash 10-20 cooked shrimp If you get medium sized shrimp then you just need 8. You can use fresh or frozen. Once they are all washed marinating them is one of the most important parts. The biggest part of this recipe is the spicy shrimp. You want to use 1-2 tablespoons of hot sauce. If you don’t want them as spicy you can also use buffalo sauce. You also want to add a pinch of salt and pepper for taste and 1 teaspoon of cumin. Let sit to marinate while you are cooking the plantains.

Plantains

You will need 2 plantains and cut them diagonally and fry them. Using non-ripe plantains work best but you can also let them sit for a day to get ripe if you like sweet plantains. Once they’re fried let them sit on a plate to cool down. You can use guacamole or just slice up an avocado into pieces and top onto the plantains.  

Finally, you top the spicy shrimp and voila.

    Seafood and shrimp are my fave!!! I’d love this app. It looks perfect, with great mixture of flavors and texture. The crisp white wine would be fantastic.
