***Sorry there’s no picture of the final product, we were running out the door as soon as they were made and they disappeared fast:-).
Our friends were having us over for a football party on Sunday, and my husband and I looked at each other wondering what we would bring to share.
All of a sudden, I realized I had wonton wrappers, shrimp, cream cheese, and General Tso’s sauce! OMG! So simple!!!! I love simple things that look fantastic!
Edible shells give a big impression but are BEYOND EASY!!
Here’s how to do the shells:
1 package wonton wraps
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 mini muffin tin
Put one wonton wrapper in a mini muffin tin, fold edges together a little to make it stay.
Brush wrappers with butter
After the shells were baked, I put them in my traveling container, and added a small slice of cream cheese to each wrapper.
While the shells were baking, I made the General Tso’s Shrimp:
– 1 bag frozen shrimp, thawed and peeled. I use the 21-31 shrimp/pound but you could use whatever size you want.
-1 bottle Trader Joes General Tso’s Sauce
-I sautéed the shrimp on medium until they were cooked and continued until all the liquid was gone.
-add a coating of sauce over the shrimp.
***the biggest key with adding any type of sauce to shrimp is to make sure the liquid is gone before adding the sauce or else the sauce will not stick. Same goes with adding a butter/lemon sauce, whatever…if you have a bunch of liquid in the pan when you add the sauce, then it simply will not stick.
So, you have your shells done and with cream cheese in them. You have your shrimp done. Simply pop a shrimp in each wrapper/shell and you’re done! If you want to be extra fancy, you can add an extra drizzle of sauce on top:-)
****This is so simple!!!
I believe that making the wonton wrapper shells is key to making things look like you took a ton of time!
Think of the possibilities for filling the shells:
-marshmallows with chocolate
