Shrimp Pad Thai Cups
What it took for about 24 cups:
* 24 wonton wrappers
* 7 oz pad thai noodles
* 2 Tbs. brown sugar
* 2 Tbs. soy sauce
* 1 Tbs. fish sauce
* 2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
* 1 Tbs. sriracha or chili garlic sauce
* 3 Tbs. canola oil
* 2 scallions, finely sliced
* 24 large frozen shrimp, thawed, peeled and deveined
* 5 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 cup fresh bean sprouts
* 1/4th cup unsalted peanuts, chopped
* fresh cilantro for garnish
Lightly oil each side of the wonton wrappers, and carefully press them into each muffin tin. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, until crispy and slightly browned. Set aside.
Cook the noodles according to the package, then drain. Set aside.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, soy sauce, fish sauce, lime juice and chili paste.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add the oil to the pan. Add the scallions, shrimp and minced garlic. Stir-fry roughly 2 minutes, until shrimp is done. Add the cooked noodles and stir to toss. Add the sauce and toss to combine.
Using tongs, place a small amount of the pad Thai inside each wonton cup. Nestle a single shrimp in the pad Thai nest, and garnish with peanuts.
Serve to your mouth. I MEAN your guests.
