Guacamole Shrimp Wonton Cups

We eat with our eyes first. This appetizer definitely catches your eye and the secret is – they are so easy to make!

Some recipes are more of an assemble kind of recipe vs. cooking everything from scratch and guess what.. that’s okay! It makes prep time much shorter saving you time in the kitchen. For this recipe, I used prepared guacamole and mango salsa. Feel free to create your version from scratch.

How to make wonton cups

Tip: Wonton wrappers are often found in the produce section of the grocery store.

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly coat a 24-cup mini muffin tin with nonstick spray.
  • Press wonton wrappers into each of the muffin tins, to create a cup shape.
  • Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.

Bonus: For extra flavor, brush the wontons with olive oil and sprinkle additional seasonings to the wonton wrappers before baking.

Skip this step: Don’t feel like making the wonton cups? Stack the layers of guacamole, mango salsa, and shrimp in a “scoop” chip.

8 Delicious Shrimp Recipes [Recipe Round-Up] by RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchen

Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it. – Forrest Gump

Exactly what Bubba said in Forrest Gump – shrimp has vast versatility making it a great addition to easily add protein to a meal. Plus, shrimp can cook in about 5 minutes making it a simple fix for weeknight dinners.

Just be careful not to overcook your shrimp. They will get tough and chewy. Their color changes from blue to orange-pink when they’re cooked through, and they’ll be slightly firm.
