Ready-made pastry shells make it easy to prepare these empanadas in less than an hour--perfect when unexpected guests drop by or you are looking for a refreshing change of pace for a family dinner. The filling is made with sauteed asparagus and shrimp and a shortcut white sauce made by sprinkling flour into the saute pan and cooking with milk until thickened and creamy. Forming the empanadas is easy to do, just be careful not to overfill.

  • 200 grams shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon flour

  2. Add the oil to a skillet on medium heat. Add the asparagus and saute for a couple of minutes.
  3. Add the shrimp and cook for 1 minute.
