Puff pastries with shrimp and fresh cheese (flight in the wind)

These small aperitif bites are made with puff pastries that you prepare yourself or that you buy ready-made at our baker or in supermarkets in the bakery and pastry department. You can also find them in the frozen department, just cook them and garnish them according to your desire! For this gourmet recipe, I propose an alliance that has always been successful with my family, fresh garlic cheese and herbs, and shrimp.

An express recipe that can be prepared in no time without a headache, you can make them in advance and reserve them in the cool! Just take them out of the refrigerator 20 minutes before serving!

I proposed on the blog another recipe just as delicious, puff pastries that I topped with minced meat and mushrooms of Paris all linked with a creamy béchamel sauce with cheese. We can quite decorate them according to our desires, garnish them with chicken, smoked salmon or vegetables, etc. An easy, fast, and unbeatable recipe to impress your guests during the end of the year holidays!
