Shrimp Cups

LARGE CUPCAKE CUP PAN
MINI CUPCAKE PAN
BAKE SHRIMP IN THE OVEN
COOK SHRIMP IN A PAN

Ingredients:

1 package of wonton wrappers (I used Dynasty – 12 oz. package for $2.00)
2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
24 medium or large shrimp, peeled and deveined or buy pre-frozen from meat department
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of chili powder or Ancho Chili Powder
2 limes
1/2 cup arugula (if not in produce fresh vegetable section, they sell it in lettuce section in bags)
3 tablespoons of sour cream or Greek yogurt (we used sour cream)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Prepare wonton shells. Lightly brush one side of wonton with 1 tbsp. olive oil.

Arrange wontons in mini cupcake pan. You can use large cupcake pan but they are harder to eat.

Bake wontons until golden brown and crisp about 6-10 minutes. Keep an eye on them. They will get crispy fast.

Toss Shrimp with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt, 2 teaspoons of lime zest, and chile powder.

Bake shrimp for 5-8 minutes until opaque throughout in a square pan. I sprayed the pan with PAM and dumped the extra oil from bowl into pan. If you don’t want to bake the shrimp, you can cook them in a pan over medium heat until fully cooked.

*** You can bake wontons and shrimp together.

To assemble, fill each wonton cup with a few leaves of arugula, a small dollop of sour cream under the shrimp or on top of the shrimp, one shrimp with a spritz of lime juice, and a drizzle of leftover olive oil from shrimp pan.

Pair with your favorite Chardonnay. Our favorite: Landmark Overlook Chardonnay.

*** You can cut this recipe in half if it’s just 2-4 people.
