Arepa con Atún y Camarones (Arepa with Tuna and Shrimp)

It may have become apparent by now just how much I love arepas. I could eat them at every meal. This lunch was so good… a crispy arepa with simple and beautiful toppings… creamy tuna and shrimp.

Arepas have been a fairly trendy lunch fare in Colombian restaurants for a while. Originally, “arepas” were usually eaten for breakfast with butter and topped with eggs or cheese. But the uses of arepas have changed and they are now used for simple, easy and delicious lunch and dinner main dishes as well.
