Shrimp Cocktail Wontons
- 12-24 cooked shrimp (medium size)
- 12 wonton wrappers
- 2 oz cream cheese, cut into 12 cubes
- cocktail sauce
- lemon, olive oil, pepper & seasoned salt (I use Melting Pot’s Garlic & Wine Seasoning)
- cilantro – optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using a muffin tin, place a wonton wrapper into each cup, pressing in as shown below. Place a cube of cream cheese in each.
Bake for 7-10 minutes until golden brown.
While they are baking, remove the tails from the shrimp, place on a platter. Drizzle with olive oil, seasoned salt and pepper, then squeeze fresh lemon over the top. Place in oven for 4-5 minutes.
Lift each wonton onto a plate. Place a dollop of cocktail sauce over the softened cream cheese, then top with a shrimp or two and a cilantro leaf, if desired. Serve and enjoy!
