4 portions
  • 200 grams shrimp, clean and without head
  • 400 grams rosemary
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 liquid ounces vinegar
  • 2 ounces olive oil
  • 2 cups mass, black or poblano
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 plantain
  • 60 onions
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 cups sugar, for caramelised (optional)


First prepare the romeritos, these are cleaned by removing the thick stems and roots. Fry in a pan with butter, onion and finely chopped garlic , add the romeritos and sauté them without letting them burn, add a pinch of salt, fry for about two minutes. We remove them from the fire and reserve them.
We clean the shrimp by removing the heads and peels, removing the venita, cut in half. Once clean, fry them in oil and apple cider vinegar, sauté in the pan until they are golden brown, add a pinch of salt and set aside in an absorbent paper to remove the excess oil.
We heat the mole. In a separate bowl mix the rosemary with a little mole, taking care that the mixture is not watered down.
To assemble the timbal we use a mold with a metal ring shape. Add the first layer of romeritos, the second layer made with a pair of shrimp, the third of diagonal slices of fresh male banana. The mixture is pressed with the spoon inside the ring so that it compacts and takes shape. The steps are repeated to form the fourth, fifth and sixth layers.
Optionally, to give a high kitchen finish, you can "crystallize" the dish, this is done by adding a spoonful of sugar forming a layer on the top of the drum and with a kitchen torch or portable torch (bought in any tlapalería ) the sugar is fired until it crystallizes. Subsequently, crystallized or not, the ring mold is removed with great care, trying not to damage the drum. A "mirror" of mole is made on the plate without adding too much.


Decorate with beet sprouts and edible flowers.


Use a metal ring to form the timbal.
