SWEET AND SPICY SHRIMP WONTON DIP

SWEET AND SPICY SHRIMP WONTON DIP

 

4 oz. cream cheese

1 can Oceans 97 Jalapeno Chili Shrimp Pate

½ cup sour cream

¼ cup Hellmann’s Light Mayonnaise

4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

1 jalapeno pepper, minced

2 Tbs. oyster sauce

1/3 cup scallions, chopped (plus 2 Tbs. for garnish)

1 Tbs. lemon juice, fresh squeezed

2 cups shredded mozzarella

2 Tbs. Thai chili sauce

 

Fried Wontons for Dipping:

1 package wonton wrappers

Vegetable oil for frying

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and heat vegetable oil in a large Dutch oven or fryer to 375 degrees.

 

Microwave cream cheese in a large bowl for 1 minute until very soft.  Add all of the remaining dip ingredients to the cream cheese except chili sauce and mix well.

 

Spray a pie plate with non-stick spray and spread the dip in the plate in an even layer. 

 

Bake for 25-30 minutes until hot and bubbly.  Let rest for 10 minutes.  Drizzle the Thai chili sauce over the top of the dip in a crisscross pattern.  Garnish with remaining chopped scallions.

 

While dip is cooking, cut the wonton wrappers in half and fry them in batches until crisp and lightly browned – they cook quickly so keep an eye on them – you will need to flip them in the oil once after about 20-30 seconds to brown on both sides.  Drain on paper towels and season immediately with salt.

 

Serve the dip with wonton chips on the side.  Also delish with pita chips.
