Appetizer Recipe: Shrimp Mango Salsa Phyllo Cups are an Easy Party Finger Food

By Jennifer Savor the Thyme |

With holiday parties in full swing as well as the countdown to Christmas, we all need some easy appetizer recipes and to me, finger foods are ideal.  One of our favorite foods in this house is shrimp. In fact, my daughter squeals when she hears ‘shrimp,’ so she was all over these Shrimp Mango Salsa Phyllo Cups…

There are a few shortcuts you can take with this recipe including buying these phyllo cups from the freezer section as well as buying precooked shrimp. This can also be rather economical as you want to use small shrimp.

Now, the salsa may seem like a bit of prep but double or triple the recipe and use it on chicken the next night — chop once, eat twice

Shrimp Mango Salsa Phyllo Cups
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
15 baked phyllo shells
15 small shrimp, cooked and tail removed
1/2 mango, diced
2 pineapple rings, canned and chopped
3 Tablespoons red pepper, chopped
3 Tablespoons green pepper, chopped
1 Tablespoon red onion, minced
1 Tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped
salt & pepper

Toss shrimp with garlic powder, chili powder, a touch of salt and set aside.

In a bowl, combine the mango, pineapple, red and green peppers, onion, cilantro and mix well. Place a small amount of the mango salsa in the bottom of each phyllo cup and place a shrimp on top. Eat immediately.

Another great appetizer or party finger food, are Antipasto Caprese Kabobs

    I love those pre-made phyllo cups – they make life so easy! These look like the perfect little hors d’oeuvres.

    These were yummy. However, I’m not sure that I would use the fillo/phyllo shells again. The texture didn’t quite work for us. I would probably use scoops next time, I’m sure the sweet and salty combonation would be delicious.
