Chile Lime Shrimp Cups with Mango Salsa



Today's recipe is perfect for the summer months ahead. There's always some party or social gathering going on where you need to bring a little something once the weather turns warmer. These are sure to have all of your guests raving. I promise.


Chile Lime Shrimp Cups with Mango Salsa
(makes 24)

Ingredients:
For the shrimp cups:
- 24 wonton wrappers
- 24 previously cooked shrimp
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- Juice of 2 limes, separated
- Chile powder, to taste (depending on your preferred level of spice)
- Salt & pepper, to taste

For the mango salsa:
- 2 mangos, cubed
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 2 jalapenos, seeds removed, diced
- Juice of 2 limes
- 2 tbsp of fresh cilantro, finely chopped
- Salt & pepper, to taste

Method:
1. In a medium-sized container, combine the shrimp, 1/2 tbsp olive oil, garlic, juice of 1 lime, chile powder, salt & pepper. Allow the flavors to marinate for at least 30 minutes (if not longer).
2. Combine the ingredients for the mango salsa (the mangos, red onion, jalapenos, lime juice, cilantro, and salt & pepper) in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Cover this mixture and set it in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. 
3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
4. Spray the bottom of two muffin tins with cooking spray and set aside.
5. Using the remaining 1/2 tbsp of olive oil, brush each wonton wrapper, and push each one down into the muffin cups. 
6. Bake the wontons for about 5 to 7 minutes, or until lightly browned.
7. Once you are ready to serve, place the wontons on a platter, and spoon a little bit of the mango salsa into each cup. 
8. Top the salsa with one shrimp a piece, and using the last lime, squeeze a little bit of juice over each one. 
9. Serve, and enjoy!


For as easy as these are to throw together, your friends and guests will never be able to tell. They look fancy, they taste delicious, and they're the perfect bite-size food. I know this won't be the last time I use shrimp cups as a fancy vessel to serve appetizers in.
