Curried Shrimp Phylo Bundles Recipe

Step 1

In small mixing bowl, stir together yogurt, coconut, finely chopped peanuts, chopped chutney, curry powder, and ginger. Gently stir in shrimp.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 375. Unfold phyllo dough. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a waxed-paper-lined cutting board. Cover remaining sheets with a damp paper towel. Keep covered to prevent drying. Generously brush with butter. Top with another sheet of phyllo, then brush with more butter. Repeat with a third sheet of phyllo and butter. Using a sharp knife, cut the stack of buttered phyllo sheets into twelve 4" squares. Place about 2 t filling in the center of each square. For each bundle, bring the 4 corners together; pinch and twist slightly. Repeat with remaining phyllo dough and butter to make 24 bundles total. Arrange bundles on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 18-20 minutes, until golden.

Step 3

To freeze: prepare phyllo bundles as directed, except do not bake. Freeze unbaked bundles on baking sheet, then transfer to storage container. Do not thaw before baking.
