I heard of this shrimp appetizer made out of wonton wrappers and shrimp that you dip in a jalapeno jelly.  As is my custom, I “doctored” the recipe and am sharing it here with you!

Makes 24 pieces.

  • 12 large shrimp, raw, peeled & deveined
  • 24 wonton skins
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 4 tbsps fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly julienned
  • 4 ozs cream cheese, softened
  • vegetable oil for frying

Slice shrimp in half length-wise. 

Dip wonton wrapper in milk.  In the middle of the wonton wrapper, place shrimp diagonally.  Add a sprinkle of green onions, cilantro, and a couple red bell pepper pieces.  Top with a 1/2 tsp of cream cheese.

Roll up from one corner and place seam side down in frying pan with about 1/2 inch of hot oil.  Fry until light brown on each side.

Serve with Raspberry-Jalapeno jelly for dipping.

 

You can buy the Raspberry-Jalapeno jelly here: Raspberry & Raspberry Jalapeno Jelly

Alternately, you can make your own jelly by mixing raspberry or apricot preserves with hot jalapeno jelly; though this A Bountiful Harvest brand is delicious!
