Shrimp Salad Phyllo Cups


This is my Mom's favorite appetizer.  She requests that I make it for every special occasion.  I used the store bought phyllo cups this time since I was short on time, and they tasted great.  If you want to see how to make the phyllo cups homemade, you can check out Paula Deen's recipe.  The shrimp salad can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge until ready to serve. 

Shrimp Salad Ingredients:

1 lb shrimp, cooked and diced into 1/4 inch chunks
1 stalk celery, finely diced
1 green onion, finely diced
1 cup lite mayonnaise
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
hot pepper sauce, to taste
1 lemon, juiced
2 T chopped parsley

Phyllo Cups:

1 T butter, melted
garlic powder
pepper
grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Arrange phyllo cups on a baking sheet.  Brush insides with melted butter.  Sprinkle with garlic powder, pepper, and grated cheese.  Bake for 4 minutes.  Remove and let cool.

In a large bowl, add all shrimp salad ingredients and stir well to combine.  Taste and adjust seasonings.  When ready to serve, spoon shrimp salad into phyllo cups and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese.  Garnish with parsley leaves.  Enjoy!
