Servings: 15 cups
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 10 min
2 cups shrimp, cooked, peeled, and finely diced, about 1 pound
1/2 cup finely diced celery
1 tablespoon minced green onion
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (15-count) package frozen mini phyllo shells, thawed, or homemade, recipe follow
Mini Phyllo Cups:
1 stick butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 sheets phyllo dough
4 tablespoons grated Parmesan
2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
Combine the shrimp, celery, and green onion in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, stir together the lemon juice, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Pour over the shrimp and stir gently to combine. Spoon into the phyllo shells.
Mini Phyllo Cups:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter with the garlic until fragrant.
Lay 1 sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface, brush it all over with the melted butter, sprinkle with a little Parmesan and chopped parsley, top with another sheet and repeat 3 more times until 4 sheets have been used. Cover the phyllo dough with a damp kitchen or paper towel while it sits on the counter to prevent it from drying out as you work. Repeat the stack with the remaining sheets so you end up with 2 stacks. With a large chef knife, cut each stack into 12 equal pieces, 4 by 3 inches. Lightly spray a mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line each muffin cup with 1 of the phyllo pieces, gently pressing it down into the edges to form a cup. Repeat to make 24 mini phyllo caps.
Bake in a preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until light golden brown and crisp. Remove from oven and cool completely before filling.
