Ingredients

  • 1 lb cooked shrimp peeled, deveined, minced
  • 250 grams cream cheese room temperature
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 50 wonton wrappers
  • 1 egg beaten

Instructions

  • Heat oven up to 400F and lightly coat your baking tray with a non-stick spray.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the shrimp, cream cheese, and garlic.
  • Assemble the wontons by putting a dollop of mixture into the centre of the wonton wrapper (a bit more than 1 teaspoon), brush the egg wrap on the edge of the wonton wrapper, and then fold the edges up making an X.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until the wontons are crispy and golden brown.

Notes

Options: Salt and pepper to taste (I found the flavour to be fine without but you might have a different taste palette). Add Sriracha if you want a kick!
