Golden cups appies are a sweet and tangy variation on classic spring rolls and dumplings. Mint leaves add a hit of freshness.
Chef Sumruoy Poomrat
1 cup lime juice
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp salt
4 red Thai chiles, minced
1 Tbsp minced lemongrass
12-16 spring roll wrappers, cut into 2 inch squares
6-8 cooked salad shrimp
1 Tbsp ground peanuts
2 Tbsp diced green peppers
1 Tbsp diced red pepper
1 Tbsp diced celery
2 Tbsp diced cucumber
1 tsp minced mint leaves
1 tsp minced coriander
- Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Set aside.
- In each cup of a small mini cupcake pan, overlap 2 spring roll wrappers, setting the wrappers perpendicular on top of one another. Push down in the middle to form a cup shape. Bake wrappers in the oven at 350°F for 5 minutes.
- Set aside 2-4 shrimp (equal to the number of cups made). In a bowl, mix together remaining shrimp, peanuts, green peppers, red pepper, celery, cucumber, minced mint leaves and minced coriander with the reserved lemongrass sauce to create filling.
- Scoop filling into cups and top each with a shrimp.
