A mixture of cultures in the spectacular appetizer. Bring together an Asian, sub-tropical array of ingredients and wrap it all up in a Greek-Middle-Eastern package and you end up with a magnificent stimulation of the senses.
Shredded Phyllo dough is the wrapping for this appetizer, and it can be deep fried or baked. I chose to bake these, but they are a treat no matter how you make them.**SEE COOK'S NOTES**
RECIPE PRINTED FROM: THEGUTSYGOURMET.NET©
INGREDIENTS: SERVES 4 - Makes 8 appetizers
● 8 (16-20) count jumbo shrimp, deveined and butterflied
● KataifI shredded Phyllo dough (Middle Eastern Groceries or high-end supermarkets)
● ½ cup melted or clarified butter
● 8 thin wooden or bamboo skewers soaked in water
● 1 teaspoon(s) cumin
● 1 teaspoon(s) coriander
● 1 teaspoon(s) crushed garlic
● black pepper to taste
● ¼ cupcoconut milk

1. Preheat oven to 350°F
2. Shell, de-vein and (butterfly optional) shrimp and place in marinade for 1 hour before assembly
3. Skewer shrimp onto wooden skewers securely
4. Cut shredded phyllo dough (kataifi) a little longer than length of the shrimp. The bundles of
shredded dough should be about 2 inches in diameter and about 4 inches in length. Flatten the
bundle of dough gently and lay the skewered shrimp in the dough lengthwise. Gently press the
dough around the shrimp but not so tight as to loose the texture of the shreds.
5. Lay the skewered shrimp on a buttered cookie sheet and gently brush a ll the skewered shrimp with
the clarified butter.
6. Bake for 20 minutes or until the shredded dough is golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool,
and serve with dipping sauce.
INGREDIENTS DIPPING SAUCE:
● 1 mango mashed
● ½ cup sugar
● 1 cup orange juice
● juice of one lemon
● 1 tablespoon(s) soy sauce
● 2 teaspoon(s) Chili sauce
1. Mix well all ingredients of dipping sauce and chill before serving
1. If you are making quite a few of these, baking would be the preferred way to cook them, as they
can then all be cooked at the same time. The taste and looks of the finished lollipops are not
compromised either way you cook them.
