More About This Recipe
  • I’m a big fan of all kinds of empanadas. This time I decided to make empanadas filled with a combination of shrimp and crab meat. These empanadas will go great with a nice salad. They would also pair nicely with a paste made with Peruvian yellow pepper. I’ve also added a little bit of chimichurri and done. It’s a great combination and the result was spectacular.
