Shrimp asopao

Asopao is a stew originating in Puerto Rico.[1][2] Asopao can be made with chicken, pork, beef, shrimp seafood, vegetables, or any combination of the above.

Versions of asopao are found in many Caribbean locales, including the Dominican Republic, where the addition of chicharrones de pollo (small bits of fried chicken or chicken skin) is characteristic.[1] Asopao de pollo (chicken asopao) is typically flavored with spices such as bay leaf and oregano, along with garlic, red peppers, onions, tomatoes, white rice, plantain dumplings and potatoes.[3]
