What is Mofongo
Mofongo (Garlic Plantain Mash) is the quintessential dish of Puerto Rico. It is by far one of our most loved dishes and with good reason.
Guy Fieri, from the Food Network claims it is the “best fried thing he ever ate!”
Mofongo is also known as “Mofongo Boricua.”
This delicious Puerto Rican dish is simply fried green plantains that are then mashed with a garlic puree or paste, “chicharrones” (pork cracklings) and olive oil.
This simple combination is phenomenal!
However, there is the Mofongo Relleno, which simply means a mofongo that is stuffed with a delicious filling, such as with shrimps, pork or chicken.
Yes! Add shrimp and this already delicious dish somehow gets even more delicious. Mofongo con Camarones or Mofongo de Camarones is just simply delicious!…
