Shrimp Puffs

Yield about 4 dozen


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 (6-ounce) packages frozen cooked shrimp, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery hearts
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

How to Make It

  1. Combine water and butter in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Add flour, stirring vigorously over low heat 1 minute or until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a smooth ball. Remove from heat; let cool slightly.

  2. Add eggs, one at a time, beating with a wooden spoon after each addition; beat until batter is smooth. Drop by teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

  3. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes or until golden brown and puffed. Cool away from drafts on wire racks. Cut top off mini puffs; pull out and discard soft dough inside. Reserve tops.

  4. Set aside 1/4 cup shrimp; finely chop remaining shrimp. Add chopped shrimp to remaining ingredients, mixing well. Spoon 1 heaping teaspoon of shrimp mixture into mini puffs; replace tops. Arrange on serving platter, and garnish with reserved shrimp.

  5. Note: Other chopped seafood, ham, or chicken may be substituted for shrimp.
