Shrimp mofongo in creole sauce

During our recent travel to Puerto Rico, we tried a local dish (both from a food truck and a restaurant). The main ingredient is fried plantains. The plantains are picked green and fried, then mashed with salt, garlic, and oil in a wooden mortar and pestle. It is stuffed with either seafood (shrimp/octopus), chicken, or beef. I wasn't adventurous enough to try the octopus during our stay.

I had shrimp mofongo in garlic sauce and creole sauce, both were delicious. Although, the garlic was really good, I definitely loved the flavors the creole sauce brought to this dish. I will definitely be making this again!
