A spicy, smooth filling is a spectacular spin on traditional shrimp cocktail.
cooked large (21 to 30 count) deveined peeled shrimp with tails left on (about 1/2 lb)
tablespoons cream cheese, softened
teaspoons wasabi paste
teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
cup seafood cocktail sauce
With sharp knife, cut along back curve of each shrimp, not cutting through to other side. Pat dry with paper towels.
In small bowl, mix cream cheese, wasabi paste and 1 teaspoon of the chopped cilantro. Spread each shrimp open; fill with cream cheese mixture and sprinkle lightly with remaining cilantro. Place on serving plate. Serve with cocktail sauce.
Large to extra-large shrimp are a good choice for shrimp cocktail. If one size is on sale at your grocery store, purchase that one. The cream cheese mixture will fill fewer extra-large shrimp.
Look for wasabi paste in tubes in the Asian-foods section of the grocery store. Refrigerate after opening.
