Ready In:
24-30 mini phyllo cups




  • SAUCE: 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.
  • 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 BEFOREfilling.

<p>Aloha! I just recently started spending more time in the kitchen and am learning that cooking and baking can be fun as well as challenging. My favorite cookbook resources are my 'gourmet' sister and the very patient and generous Ohana of Zaar.&nbsp;Mahalo nui loa! <br /><br />My rating system: The first time I try a recipe, I follow the instructions as given; if I do a little tweaking, I keep that in mind when rating. It's not right to rate lower because of something I did or didn't do. <br />***** ... Excellent! Tasted great with/without tweaking. <br />**** &nbsp;... Loved It! Tasted great with/without tweaking. <br />No stars ... May be an excellent recipe but I was unable to get it to work for me. May or may not try again later. We don't all have the same taste preferences. I've found recipes with lots of five stars that just didn't work for me and some with less that I thought were great. <br />Thank you All for sharing!</p>
