You’re going to fall head over heels in love with these quick and easy Shrimp Bites! They’re super addictive and the perfect finger food appetizer for any gathering!
Yes, there’s a lot happening here but it’s such an easy recipe, I promise. You can even bake the wonton cups ahead of time, and if you’re really short on time, you can also use store-bought guacamole
Who can’t use one more easy appetizer? you can never have too many easy appetizer recipes. When it comes to making appetizers for a party I’ve learned that easy is best. Keeping your sanity and being in a good mood when guests show up is far better than having a complicated appetizer that took you half the day to make and that your guests will never know or probably care that it took that long to make. All anyone cares about is eating food that tastes good, having fun and in this case watching the big game. These Shrimp Bites are both quick and easy to make and include a couple shortcuts you can take to make them even easier.
Once the shrimp are cooked which only takes about two minutes, put them on a plate to cool. Now to the shortcuts for these Shrimp Bites. The first is the wonton cups that hold the shrimp and act as the taco shell. I made my cups a day in advance and stored them in an airtight container. They don’t take long to make if you are doing it the day of, but it’s always nice to have one less step the day of the party. If you’re really rushed you could also serve these in mini phyllo cups that you get in the freezer section of the store or the little scoop tortilla chips would work as well
