Serves 8 (Yield 25-30 Scampi Bites, depending on the size of the shrimp)
4 oz. Cream Cheese
4 oz. Butter
1 cup AP flour
1 teaspoon Healthy Solutions Spice Blends Shrimp Scampi
1 lb. Shrimp, (25-30 size)
1 tsp. Healthy Solutions Spice Blends Shrimp Scampi
1 tsp. Butter
1 tsp. Olive oil
1 cup White Wine
1-2 tsp. Healthy Solutions Spice Blends Shrimp Scampi
1 tablespoon butter
1 tsp. Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Grease a couple of mini tart pans.
Tassi Dough: Rub the cream cheese and butter into the flour and seasoning mix, until well blended. You can also place all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the mixture forms a soft ball. Place in the fridge for about 15 minutes to firm up a little if you like.
Shrimp: Sprinkle 1 tsp. Scampi Seasoning onto the shrimp and saute in the butter/olive oil until the shrimp just starts to cook, remove from heat. Set aside for just a minute.
Scampi Sauce: Place the sauce ingredients into a small sauce pan and simmer until the wine has reduced by half or more. Takes about 10 minutes.
Take the Tassi Dough out of the fridge, form into marble sized balls, and flatten each one out into a thin disc and press them into each depression of a mini tart pan. Continue until all the depressions are filled.
Place one of the par-cooked shrimp into each tart and bake at 375 -380 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove to a serving platter and serve with a spoonful of Scampi Sauce on top. Serve warm or at room temp.
