Baked Shrimp Wontons with Peanut Sauce

This tasty dish feels like a restaurant treat, but is quick and easy to make at home. Baking the wontons instead of frying makes them crispy, crunchy, and healthy. Craig actually invented the filling for these, which is simply shrimp, carrots and cabbage. This nutritious combo packs a ton of protein, vitamins and minerals and avoids added fat and salt. At only 36 calories each, these can be a guilt-free appetizer, snack or main dish. Whip these up for your next party or potluck and they will be a huge hit!
