Spicy Shrimp Puffs


These delightful little mouthfuls are a great treat for a party or get-together!  Little puff pastry cups filled with creamy, spicy shrimp filling will please a crowd!

SPICY SHRIMP PUFFS
One package 24-count puff pastry cups
12 ounces shrimp, peeled, deveined, and rough chopped
2 T butter
Olive oil
Half a small onion, chopped
2 T chopped green bell pepper
1/4 C white wine
1 clove garlic, minced
Hot sauce, to taste
Cajun seasoning, to taste
Red chili flakes, to taste
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 green onion, chopped
1 C heavy cream
1/4 to 1/2 C shredded Parmesan cheese

Bake the puff pastry cups according to directions.  If necessary, poke the centers back down after removing from the oven.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet and drizzle in some olive oil.  Cook the onion and bell pepper until tender. Deglaze the pan with the wine.  Add in the shrimp, garlic, hot sauce, Cajun seasoning, red chili flakes, Worcestershire sauce, and green onions.  Cook a couple of minutes or until shrimp is done.  Add in the cream and bring to a bubble. Remove from the heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese, adding the additional cheese if the sauce isn't thick enough. Spoon into the puff pastry cups.
