Buffalo Shrimp Bites

Erica's Recipes


  • 30 medium shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1-2 t extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 pkgs 15 shells each frozen fillo shells
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 c ranch dressing
  • 2 T Red Hot buffalo wing sauce
  • 1 c shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1/4 c crushed nacho cheese-flavored Doritos chips
  • 1 celery rib very finely diced


  • Heat oven broiler on high heat.
  • On a rimmed bake sheet, toss the shrimp in the olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, and Old Bay. Spread the shrimp in a single layer. Broil 1 minute, flip, and broil another minute. Toss the shrimp with the buffalo sauce.
  • In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and ranch dressing.
  • Gently spoon or pipe ~1/2-1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture into each fillo cup on a rimmed bake sheet. Top the cream cheese layer with a shrimp. Top each shrimp with some cheese (cheese will spill onto the bake sheet - that's unavoidable).
  • Bake the filled fillo cups for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted and cups are heated through and a little bubbly. Remove from the oven and immediately top each with a sprinkling of celery and crushed Doritos (these will also get all over the bake sheet too). Serve warm. Yield: 30 appetizers.
