The perfect party food for passing, this stuffed wonton also lends itself well to crabmeat or mushroom fillings instead of shrimp. Serve them hot, warm, or cold. —Lori Stefanishion, Drumheller, Alberta

"This recipe is awesome and my family raved over it!"

"Very good! I like spicy, but these were just a little too spicy for me so I'll reduce the amount of hot sauce next time. I wasn't too sure about the sweetness when I first tried it, but it did grow on me."

"These were a huge hit at both holiday parties that I took them to. They remind me of crab rangoons but with shrimp! Totally worth it!"
