Puff Pastry Shells

Shrimp and Avocado Puff Pasty Shells

Enjoy these Puff Pastry Shells.

Just about anything in puff pastry shells looks delicious. In Europe these are called these vol-au-vents (French for “blown in the wind” because of their lightness). Here in North Carolina we call them the perfect Mother’s Day meal addition. They are elegant yet very easy to put together. With a little help from the grocery store using pre-made pastry shells, they can be filled with shrimp or really any of your seafood favorites. Serves twelve.
