1/2 lb. fish fillet (preferably salmon)
1/2 lb. shrimp (raw preferable)
1 cup vegetable oil (preferably olive oil)
2 plantains (ripe or medium ripe)
3 oz. chopped onions
3 oz. chopped leeks or green onions
6 oz. green beans
6 oz. chopped carrots
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
6 oz. green, red, yellow bell peppers
1/4 t Sea salt
1/2 bouillon cube

Cut salmon into small pieces as desired. Clean the shrimps, if raw shrimp are used. In a large bowl, add cold water and 1/4 teaspoon salt and steep the fish and shrimp in it for about 10 minutes, then strain. Add 1 teaspoon of seafood seasoning and 1/2 bouillon cube and mix properly.

Put cooking oil into pot and add chopped onion and leeks and stir. Add salmon and shrimp (if raw). Add bell peppers, cover saucepan and let simmer for about 3 minutes then open and flip the salmon pieces. While fish and shrimp are cooking, boil or steam mixed vegetables in a separate pot and strain. Steaming is preferable as the vegetables do not get soggy and overcooked.

Slice and fry plantains. If rice is preferred, boil the rice. Strain and add boiled mixed vegetables and stir carefully for 3 minutes. Add fried plantains in the mixture and serve.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with fried plantains or steamed rice.
