FUSION FANTASY SHRIMP PUFFS

Fusion Fantasy Shrimp Puffs

I am honored to be one of 30 bloggers chosen to compete in the Lucky Foods Recipe Challenge.  Lucky foods provided each blogger with 3 of their Korean sauces and the task is to create delicious ‘out-of-the-box’ appetizer and entree dishes.  The sauces range from sweet to spicy and are derived from recipes that have been passed down for generations from the Lucky Foods founders, the Jo family.  Each sauce has a delicious complex flavor profile and I couldn’t wait to start creating!

Fusion Fantasy Shrimp Puffs

I love creating new recipes and working with new products and these sauces from Lucky Foods are TRULY delicious and really got my wheels turning.  If you follow my blog, you know that I am a huge fan of working with Asian flavors and  creating fusion cuisine. People laugh when I tell them I wake up in the middle of the night and think about all of the different things I can make… Well, that’s exactly how this recipe came about.  I wanted to work with shrimp and I wanted to use all 3 of the sauces I was given to create a very cool fusion appetizer…

These shrimp puffs are layered with so much flavor – sweet, savory, salty, briny, fresh, and spicy… and so much texture!  The unlikely pairing of sweet and spicy Korean flavors with feta cheese and honey roasted pistachios SING together for the perfect surprise bite!! I made them for my family to test… and they made me make another batch!

Here’s how I made them (or check out the full recipe at the end of this post!):

Fusion Fantasy Shrimp Puffs

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and add 1 ½ cups multi-colored chopped bell peppers.  Cook, stirring frequently for 3-4 minutes until the peppers are soft and fragrant.  Stir in 1 ½ tablespoons of the Lucky Foods Kalbi sauce and cook 1 minute more until the sauce thickens and coats the peppers.  Remove from heat and set aside.

Roll out 1 sheet of thawed puff pastry on a lightly floured countertop into a 13” x 10” rectangle.  Using a biscuit cutter, cut out 12, 3” rounds and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.  Spread about ½ teaspoon of the kimchi mayo on each round and then top them each with an even amount of the sautéed peppers.
