Baked Goat's Cheese Appetizer with Shrimp & Basil
Combine the garlic and basil with a pinch of salt. Pound the nuts in mortar with a pestle and add the oil and the basil and garlic mixture. Stir in the Parmesan and chopped shrimp. Slice the chevre (goat cheese) into 4 pieces. Cut each sheet of filo in half, brush with melted butter and place one slice of the goat cheese in the center. Spoon 1/4 of the shrimp mixture over each. Brush edges of pastry with melted butter and wrap up to form a parcel. Place on a baking sheet and brush, again, with butter. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
