Shrimp Purses

I love these little snacks and I serve them often as appetizers at parties or when my friends and I get together. They are so good....soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. You and your guests will love them.

Shrimp Purses

3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
2/3 cup green onions chopped fine
1/2 tablespoon of Old Bay seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 pound uncooked shrimp
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/3 cup milk
1 (16 ounce) package of wonton wrappers
1/2 cup butter

Add whole uncooked shrimp to a bowl and sprinkle with Old Bay seasoning. Set aside for at least 30 minutes. Chop shrimp as finely as possible. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and add the canola oil. Sauté garlic until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the green onions and salt; cook and stir until onions are wilted, about 3 minutes. Stir the flour, finely chopped shrimp, ricotta cheese, and milk into the mixture; cook and stir until the shrimp turn pink, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt 1/2 cup butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Brush the inside of two wonton wrappers with butter and lay one buttered wrapper them on top of the other. Add a teaspoon of the shrimp mixture. Gather up all sides of both wrappers to form a purse and pinch the tops together. Repeat for the rest of the wrappers and mixture. Brush the outsides all filled wrappers with butter and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Bake in preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
