A traditional Rangoon is typically made with crab and deep fried in vegetable oil. In other words, they are a yummy treat that sticks to the hips. My husband and I love Chinese food, but I do not like how much of it is fried. Well, actually, I lied…I love how much of it is fried, but I just can’t eat as much of it as I did when I was in college.
Recently, Nikki from Beaute’ J’adore shared a recipe with me that made me VERY happy – a Rangoon that is baked! To top it off, it has shrimp and I love shrimp. Check it out…
- 12 wonton skins
- Spray olive oil
- 6 ounces large shrimp cut into chunks
- 1 tbs lemon juice
- ½ tsp smoked paprika
- ¼ cup cream cheese
- 1 tbs miracle whip
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbs chopped red onions
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Spray both sides of the wonton wrappers with oil and place into a muffin pan.
- Bake for 6-7 minutes or until the edges are beginning to turn brown. Set aside.
- Saute the shrimp and red onion in light olive oil and set aside to cool.
- After the shrimp have cooled, place in a medium sized bowl, add lemon juice, paprika, cream cheese, miracle whip and Worcestershire sauce.
- Spoon 1 tbs of filling into each wonton cup and return to the oven and bake for an additional 3-4 minutes.
- Garnish with red onion slivers.
