  • 2 cups cooked shrimp, thawed
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 12 ounces wonton wrappers
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 'splash' sesame oil optional
  • Powdered sugar for topping if desired
  • 1 cup sweet and sour sauce for dipping
  • 1 large egg whisked


  • Thaw 2 cups of frozen, cooked shrimp. On the stove top in a pan heat up 1/2 Tbs olive oil and add the thawed shrimp and sautee until brown around 2 minutes. Add 1 minced garlic cloves and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Mince the shrimp by hand or food processor. Set the shrimp aside to cool
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • To another bowl add softened cream cheese, powdered sugar and the coconut. In a smaller dish crack one egg and whisk it to combine. Once the shrimp has cooled add it to the cream cheese and coconut mixture. To this I added a 'splash' of sesame oil.
  • Place a small dollop in the middle of a wonton wrapper. Take your finger and dip it into the egg then rub all the edges with it. To create the little pillows of goodness pinch the 4 corners with your index and middle finger on top then thumbs on the bottom and pull together making an 'X'.
  • To the egg bowl add a splash of water then brush the egg wash onto the top of each wonton. Pop these into the preheated oven for 12 minutes.
  • Sprinkle on some additional powdered sugar and serve with a side of sweet and sour sauce. Enjoy!
