Rissóis de Camarão – Portuguese Shrimp Empanadas Video Recipe
Hi everyone. These delicious Rissóis de Camarão, Shrimp Turnovers/Empanadas, are a traditional favorite for the holidays and for celebrations! My family goes crazy for these little treats and although I make dozens and dozens, it seems that there’s never enough for the next day!
I use a milk based white sauce in my recipe. Some cooks boil the shrimp shells and use the shrimp broth thickened with flour. This recipe will make about 6 – 8 dozen – depending on the size you make.
Here is my recipe which I’ve changed from the traditional recipe given to me by my Godmother.
