Shrimp Scampi Wontons with Lemon Parsley Pistou

Ingredients:

For the Shrimp Scampi Wontons:
¾ lb. of peeled, deveined shrimp
1/3 cup roasted red peppers
1/3 cup fresh parsley
¼ cup fresh basil
¼ cup panko bread crumbs
1 & ½ tbsp. Healthy Solutions Spice Blends Shrimp Scampi
1 tbsp white wine
Juice from ½ of 1 lemon
20 wonton wrappers
1 egg
¼ cup water
For the Lemon Parsley Pistou:Juice from ½ of 1 lemon
¼ cup olive oil
½ cup parsley
¼ cup basil
2 cloves garlic, cut in quarters

Directions:

For the Shrimp Scampi Wontons:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Put shrimp, roasted red peppers, parsley, basil, breadcrumbs, ½ of one lemon’s juice, white wine, and Healthy Solutions Spice Blends Shrimp Scampi into the food processor. Pulse for 30 seconds to one minute, until there are no longer any large bits of shrimp and all ingredients are blended. (It should have the consistency of ground chicken).

Spray 2 large baking sheets with non-stick spray. Whisk together the 1 egg and ¼ cup of water in a small bowl. Take a small spoonful of shrimp stuffing and place in the center of each wonton.  First dip your fingers into the egg mixture then continuing to use your fingers bring the 2 opposite corners together and pinch at the top, repeat the same with the other 2 corners. It should form a little closed tent like top. You can then lightly brush a little more of the egg mixture on the exterior of the wonton (This will help them getting golden brown and crispy!). Repeat this same process with each of the wontons.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
For the Lemon Parsley Pistou:

Place all ingredients into blender or food processor and pulse for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until smooth.  Serve alongside your crispy wontons!
