How to make it
- Make Shrimp Filling:
- Pulse together all filling ingredients in a food processor until they form a coarse paste.
- Make Sticks:
- Preheat oven to 450°F.
- Cover phyllo with 2 overlapping sheets of plastic wrap and then a dampened kitchen towel.
- Put 1 phyllo sheet on a work surface, keeping remainder covered, and brush generously with butter. Stack 2 more phyllo sheets on top, generously buttering each.
- Cut phyllo stack in half lengthwise, then arrange 1 half with a long side nearest you.
- With dampened fingers shape 3 tablespoons shrimp filling into a narrow rope along edge nearest you, then roll up paste tightly in phyllo to form a long thin roll.
- Make another roll with other half of stack.
- Make 6 more rolls with remaining phyllo sheets, butter, and shrimp filling.
- Lightly brush top of rolls with egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds and kosher salt.
- Cut each roll crosswise into 4 sticks and arrange, seam sides down, 1 inch apart on 2 large baking sheets.
- Bake sticks in upper and lower thirds of oven, switching position of sheets halfway through baking, until phyllo is golden brown, about 15 minutes total.
- Transfer sticks to a rack to cool slightly and serve warm with dipping sauce.
- *NOTE: Shrimp sticks can be assembled (but not coated and baked) 1 day ahead and chilled, covered.
- Make Apricot Dipping Sauce:
- Purée all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
- *NOTE 2: Sauce can be made 1 week ahead and chilled, covered.
- *NOTE 3: Toast sesame seeds in one of these two ways:
- Place in a dry heavy skillet over moderate heat, stirring, until fragrant
- and a shade or two darker, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Place in a shallow baking pan in a 350° F oven until golden, 5 to 15 minutes.
- Keep an eye on them and don't let them burn...
