Repeat until all sheets are used. Place each layered square over the bottom of a small (6 oz) custard cup. Place cups, bottom side up, on a baking sheet; bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove crusts while still warm. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F. Grease a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Combine remaining ingredients, except paprika. Place in prepared dish. Bake for 30 minutes. To serve, stack 2 or 3 phyllo crusts together; spoon seafood mixture into crusts and sprinkle with paprika. Makes 15 to 20 servings.
