This seafood fricasee is served in a crispy plaintain basket as an appetizer. Even if you don't make the basket, this recipe works great.
Combine the fish stock, white wine, lime juice, onions, garlic, capers and reduce by two thirds. Reserve. Heat olive oil and add all seafood except the calamari and saute about two minutes. Don't overcook. Add reduced stock and reduce slightly more. Add calamari and parsley and cook an additional minute or so.

Peeling green plaintains can be very hard. The best way is to cut off each of the ends and make a slash through the thickness of the skin lengthwise. Soak in warm water for 10 minutes.
- 2 large green plaintains (peeled whole)
- oil to deep fry
Cut plaintains into thin round slices. Line a 4 oz ladle with a slice. Spray a 3 oz. ladle with a no stick spray and place inside the other ladle. Lower into the oil for about three minutes or until crunchy. Carefully remove from the oil.
