Shrimp Spring Roll Wrapper Cups Reprised

Carole's Chatter: Shrimp Spring Roll Wrapper Cups Reprised

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.


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


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.


  1. Great idea for a quick snack and for using up extra wrappers.

  2. Tasty pupus, as we would call them.

  3. I'm sure they were quite tasty! Interesting idea.

  4. You have the best suggestions. I could eat a dozen of those bad boys.
