For Grilled Shrimp
12 large raw shrimp, peeled, deveined, and tails removed
2 tablespoons Kikkoman® Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon cumin
Pinch of cayenne pepper

2 peeled green plantains, sliced into 1-inch pieces
Salt to taste

For Guacamole
2 ripe avocados
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion

  1. Combine ingredients for shrimp in a bowl and stir to coat. Refrigerate and marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. While shrimp marinates, heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add plantains to hot oil and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Transfer plantains to a plate to cool slightly. Leave oil in pan.
  3. Place 2 pieces of plantain between a sheet of parchment paper and press to flatten with the bottom of a mug.
  4. Return pan to stove and heat over medium heat. Add plantain slices to pan and cook for 3 minutes on each side, until lightly browned and crisp. Transfer to a large plate and sprinkle with salt.
  5. Mash avocado in a bowl until just slightly chunky. Stir in remaining ingredients for guacamole. Set aside.
  6. Preheat grill to 400°F. Drain marinade and place shrimp in a grilling basket or tray. Place directly on grill and cook 10-12 minutes until shrimp is cooked through, stirring halfway through cooking. Cool shrimp for 5 minutes.
  7. Spread a spoonful of guacamole on each plantain toston and top with a piece of shrimp. Serve right away.
