Shrimp taco bites that are easy and fun to make for a party or gathering.
Shrimp Taco Bites

Wonton wrappers are seriously like the  best things ever.  You can stuff, wrap, bake, fry and so much more with these babies.  They also make the best appetizer snacks for mankind.

Lately I’ve been craving fish/shrimp tacos.  A craving that needs to be fixed immediately!  This past week I had picked up some shrimp from the local grocery store and I decided to make a twist to the classic tacos.

Shrimp Taco Bites

Baked wonton wrappers filled with a cilantro cream sauce then topped with red cabbage and shrimp.  These little bites are the perfect appetizer or just something to satisfy a craving for shrimp or fish tacos.  The best part was that these were so EASY to put together.

I honestly tried to share these with my husband and toddler but after eating 2-3 I really just couldn’t stop.  They may have gotten like 3 out of the whole bunch.  OOPS… not really all that sorry.  These are definitely going to be a go to appetizer for the next time we invite people over.
