Wasabi Stuffed Shrimp

Wasabi Stuffed Shrimp is a fast, easy and delicious appetizer. Whether your staying in for New Years Eve or attending a New Year’s Eve celebration, this is the perfect appetizer to make. Softened cream cheese is mixed with prepared wasabi paste and piped into shrimp pockets. Prepared wasabi paste  can be found in most grocery stores, located in the spice section or the Oriental section. It comes in a tube and is very inexpensive.


When making this recipe, look for large or jumbo cooked shrimp. You can find shrimp at any grocery store so you shouldn’t have any problem finding large/jumbo shrimp. You might need to peel and devein the shrimp or if your lucky, it can be done for you by the nice looking guy working behind the fish counter. *wink, wink*
