Shrimp Spring Roll Wrapper Cups



Carole's Chatter: Shrimp Spring Roll Wrapper Cups


I got the idea for this super snack from somewhere where wonton wrappers were used.  I didn't have any but did have leftover frozen spring roll wrappers.

Ingredients:

Gently thawed spring roll wrappers
Oil (neutral one)
Cup of thawed frozen cooked prawns (keep 12 whole and chop the rest)
A little finely chopped red onion
2-3 Cherry tomatoes, chopped
Squirt of mayonnaise ( or use cream cheese)
Lemon juice
Salt, pepper, cayenne pepper

Method:

Preheat the oven to 175C (350F)
Get all your ingredients ready

Oil your muffin tins and then put 2 spring roll wrappers in each – trying to get them to follow the contours of the tin.

Cook for 8 minutes in the oven

While they are cooking mix everything else up in the bowl – except for the 12 whole prawns.

Spoon the filling into the cases and pop the whole prawn on top – cook for another 5 minutes.

I did 12 and enough turned out to be pretty and some were just for eating if you know what I mean.  Next time I'd double the quantities and fill the wrappers right up.  I might also experiment with not precooking the wrappers – while there's a risk of them getting soggy they would keep a better shape.

Simple tasty food with ingredients already on hand.
