Yield: Makes 80 bite-size turnovers.

These Miniature Shrimp Turnovers require a little effort, but they're worth it. Make in advance and heat up later. Good when you're hosting VIP's.

The Turnovers:


  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Place the water and butter in a saucepan and heat to boiling. Add the flour and salt all at once, stirring vigorously over low heat until the mixture forms a ball and leaves the sides of the pan clean. Cover and let cool to room temperature.

The Filling:


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or butter
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pound raw shrimp, shelled, deveined and finely chopped
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley


Heat the oil or butter and saut

The Coating:


  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2-1/2 cups dried bread crumbs


Coat the turnovers first in the above two beaten eggs, then in bread crumbs. Fry five or six at a time in deep fat preheated to 355 degrees F until golden, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Repeat with the second half of the dough and remaining filling.
