Peel the plantains. Slice the plantains thinly, lengthwise. Fry the plantains until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels. Season with Creole seasoning.

Mound some of the Mango Chutney in the center of each plate. Lay the shrimp around the chutney. Garnish with fried plantains, litchee fruit and cilantro.
