Another Pointe In Tyme's Rock Shrimp Baked In Fillo Dough

Type: Fish
Courses: Starters and appetizers

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb 454g / 16ozRock shrimp or any raw shrimp - (to 2 lbs) - peeled, deveined
2 tablespoons 30mlMinced garlic
1 tablespoon 15mlCilantro - chopped
1/2 lb 227g / 8ozJalapeņo cheese - grated
1 teaspoon 5mlCrushed red chilies
  Salt - to taste
  Freshly-ground black pepper - to taste
1 cup 237mlOlive oil or clarified butter
16 sheets  Fillo dough

Recipe Instructions

In a food processor, or chop by hand, mix together the garlic, cilantro, cheese, crushed red chilies and salt and pepper. In a saute pan on medium heat, cook shrimp until half done. Drain shrimp and mix with other ingredients. Set aside mixture.

Keep the fillo dough under a slightly moist towel (not too moist or it will stick together). Fillo dough dries out really quick so have extra sheets on hand. Warm oil or butter. Pull out a sheet of fillo dough and lightly baste the dough with the oil or butter, sprinkling a little salt and pepper. Complete this procedure for 6 sheets of dough.

Cut the sheets of dough in half. Spoon shrimp mixture onto each piece, folding and sealing the ends. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees until fillo is golden brown, approximately 10 to 20 minutes depending on your oven.

Cut squares in half-quarters and serve at a cocktail party or leave larger portions for a meal.
