Shrimp Dodo

"Shrimp, just Shrimp"
Moriam Olowo

Everyone went through the infectious stage of gizdodo and as delicious as that was, nothing beats a good shrimp dodo. If you’re a shrimp lover like me, you won’t stop thinking up ways to add shrimp to your everyday meal. I once made a shrimp sandwich so trust me, I love shrimp. Since I knew how to make gizdodo, I just applied the same principle here and Voila!

·         1 pound shrimp
·         3 large ripe plantains
·         ½ of a medium sized red bell pepper, chopped.
·         ½ of a medium sized green bell pepper, chopped.
·         ½ of a medium sized orange bell pepper, chopped.
·         1 cup of thick blended pepper ( I usually have blended pepper in my freezer, makes it easier when I need to cook anything that only requires little of it)
·         Salt to taste
·         Canola oil
·         1 cube Maggi
1.   Dice the plantain, add salt and fry until its golden brown, set aside.
2.   Pour pepper into a medium sized pot and let it cook for about 6 minutes, add shrimp, all chopped peppers, seasoning and 1 tablespoon of canola oil. Let it cook for another 5 minutes.
3.   Add in the fried plantain and stir until everything is properly mixed together. Let it cook for another 5-7 minutes until the pepper is sort of dried on the dodo and shrimp before serving.
In the picture below, I served mine with potatoes because I was craving potatoes but it can be served as a side dish with jollof, fried and white rice.
