    Coconut Seafood Soup with Plantains Dumplings

    The original name of this Belizean Coconut Seafood Soup with Plantains Dumplings recipe is Hudut Baruru with Sere Lasus. Hudutu Baruru is the Garifuna term for mashed green plantains and Sere Lasus is the term for coconut seafood soup. The complete dish is served as a fish soup, with dumplings of hudut (similar to Puerto Rico's mofongo) on the side. 


    Ingredients
    4
    large green plantains, peeled
    2
    large ripe plantains, peeled`
    2
    cups
    fresh coconut milk
    1
    cup
    sliced onion
    4
    cloves
    garlic, minced

    salt and pepper to taste
    4
    medium snapper fillets
    Directions
    To make the Hudut Baruru: Place the plantains in a large stock pot with salted water, enough to cover the plantains. Bring to a boil and cook until soft. Remove from the pot and cool. Mash using a mortar and pestle or puree in the food processor to a smooth consistency. Adjust seasoning, form into dumplings, and reserve.
    To make the Broth: Place the coconut milk, onion, garlic, habanero, and basil in a large pot and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring occasionally for 15 to 20 minutes. Add the snapper filets to the rich coconut broth and continue to simmer until the fish is cooked. Add salt and pepper to taste.
    Ladle the coconut broth and fish in a deep soup bowl. Drop a spoonful of the Hudut plantain dumpling into the hot soup and enjoy with or without the use of cutlery!
