Crispy taco-style wonton shells loaded with sweet and spicy firecracker shrimp, sweet mango, crunchy slaw, and cilantro! A quick and easy appetizer for those who love it sweet and spicy!


  • 12 wonton skins (see note)
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup sweet chili sauce (see note)
  • 1 mango, diced
  • 2 cups slaw (without dressing) OR red and/or green cabbage, chopped
  • handful of fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • Instructions

  • Wash and remove tails from your shrimp. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Wonton Shells

  • Grease a 9×13 pan. Lay the wonton skins over the sides of the baking pan in a single layer (do not overlap) on a diagonal. Spray lightly with cooking spray (or brush lightly with a bit of olive oil) and bake for 3-4 minutes just until the edges begin to brown (you don’t want them too crispy or they will break when you make the tacos).
  • Immediately after removing from oven, take the wontons off of the 9×13 pan and open them slightly to make taco “shells”.
  • Shrimp

  • In a large pan over medium heat, combine the shrimp and the sweet chili sauce and stir over medium heat for 6-8 minutes until pink and hot. Remove from heat.
  • Fill each wonton taco shell with some slaw, shrimp, and diced mango. Top with chopped cilantro and serve.
