Method for Camarones a la Cubano

• Roast the onion, tomatoes and garlic until soft and the flavors have been concentrated. Do not allow the onions and garlic to burn. Combine the remaining ingredients with the vegetables and puree in a blender.
• Have ready 28 pc. US-15 shrimp (peeled). Skewer 7 pc. per order. Generously brush the marinade onto the shrimp. Let sit for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and grill the skewers on the hot part of the grill. Some of the marinade might stick to the grill, this is okay. Cook for 2-3 minutes and flip the shrimp. (With this short cooking time it is important that your grill is hot in order to caramelize the marinade). Continue to cook the shrimp until medium. Remove from heat.
• Arrange the shrimp around white rice, and garnish with sautéed sweet (black and soft) slices of plantains. The dish can be garnished with crema made with sour cream that is mixed with a touch of lime juice and a drop of your favorite hot sauce.
