Prep time
  1. Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F).
  2. In a bowl, marinate shrimp in lime juice for 10 minutes. In the meantime, lay one phyllo sheet on a work surface. Cover other sheets with a damp cloth so they don’t dry out.
  3. Brush melted butter on entire sheet. Top with another sheet, and brush with melted butter.
  4. Top with last phyllo sheet. Using a very sharp knife, cut superimposed sheets in half lengthwise. Then cut each half in three to obtain six squares in all.
  5. Drain shrimp, then add cilantro, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine. Divide shrimp filling in the middle of the six squares and cover with a slice of Brie. Fold squares into little bundles, lifting the four corners of each square and squeezing together. Gently brush bundles with butter and place in a muffin pan.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown. Serve.
