Shrimp Cocktail Wontons – an easy appetizer

Shrimp Cocktail Wontons

Makes 12

  • 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!
