Shrimp & Corn Turnovers

14 Dec

I was stumped for dinner ideas the other night.  I needed something quick, and was low on groceries.  I had a pound of shrimp, a half-bag of frozen corn, one sheet of puff pastry, and a quarter jar of black bean & corn salsa, so I whipped up some shrimp & corn pastries which were really good.  I mixed all the aforementioned ingredients with some cheddar cheese, rolled out the pastry to make 12 squares, filled, and baked them.  I brushed the tops with egg wash and sprinkled half  with chili powder before baking.   

I had lots of extra filling – you really only need about a 1/3 pound shrimp – so I tossed in 3/4 c rice (all that was left!) and make shrimp, corn, and rice.  Also really yummy – and, I cleaned out the cupboards!

    I used to “clean out the cupboards” too! Just not so creatively!
