Need a new complex carbohydrate to freshen your meal prep, refuel your your body post-workout and/or provide energy? Try adding plantains to your diet to pack on muscle or provide a healthy alternative to potato.

This is a “fusion” recipe where I take a traditional Puerto Rican dish and add a little Southern cajun flavor! When cultures and cuisines collide, great things can happen!

Ingredients for 6 – 8:

  • 4 unripe plantains
  • 4 strips turkey bacon
  • 1/2lb raw shrimp
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2/ red onion
  • bundle of cilantro
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1tbsp gumbo file
