Ingredients

1/2 c
butter plus 3 tablespoons
1 Tbsp
canola oil
1/3 c
finely chopped celery stalk
1 clove
finely chopped or minced garlic
1/3 c
finely chopped onion
1/3 c
finely chopped green pepper
2
dashes hot sauce, such as tabasco
1 tsp
kosher salt
1/3 tsp
freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp
all-purpose flour
1 lb
fresh shrimp - peeled, deveined and chopped
1/2
whole milk ricotta cheese
1/3
cup whole milk
1
16 ounce package frozen phyllo dough, thawed
honey for drizzling- optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and add the canola oil. Stir in the celery and peppers; cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
2
Add the onions, garlic, hot sauce, and salt; cook and stir until onions are translucent, about 3 minutes. Be very conscience of the garlic and try not to over cook.
3
Stir the flour, shrimp, ricotta cheese, and milk into the pepper mixture; cook and stir until the shrimp turn pink, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
4
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
5
Melt 1/2 cup butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat and keep warm.
6
Stack two sheets of phyllo on top of each other, and cut into 3 strips about 3 x 12 inches. Brush the top of each strip with melted butter, and place a teaspoon of the shrimp mixture at one end. Fold phyllo dough over the filling, working back and forth from side to side to make a triangle.
7
Seal the end closed with a little water or butter. Place triangle on an ungreased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining phyllo sheets and filling.
8
Bake in preheated oven until tops are golden brown and flaky, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
9
Drizzle a little honey for an extra special mouth watering fun!
