My family loves Asian food and this recipe captures the healthy benefits of the nutritious veggies without any loss of vitamins from cooking. Even kids will gobble up raw veggies if you offer them in the form of a spring roll and give them a dipping sauce. —Terri Merritts, Nashville, Tennessee
In Middletown, Delaware, Helen Gilden gives shrimp a taste of the Orient. Soy sauce and peanut butter are combine in a sauce that glazes the shrimp nicely as she grills them. "I like to serve these kabobs as an appetizer when I'm entertaining," Helen notes.
This recipe is truly a family favorite. My husband, Doug, makes them often for family meals and my sister serves them every Tuesday night at the restaurant she owns. Feel free to use for sausage if you and your family like food with a little more kick.
“Chinese take-out can be high in sodium, fat and calories, so these crispy appetizers are a nice alternative. Whenever my husband craves a take-out egg roll, I make these instead,” shares Barbra Annino of Galena, Illinois.
With one bite of these slightly spicy kabobs, you'll feel like you took a trip to the orient. Combining peanut butter and coconut milk creates a combination sure to wow everyone. There's no doubt you'll want seconds!
Although these Asian-inspired appetizers feel fancy, they're actually easy to prepare. Baking the rangoon instead of deep frying them not only saves time but reduces the mess.—Sue Bennett, Shelburn, Indiana
Sesame seeds create an attractive coating for this easy cracker spread. Be sure to watch when you’re toasting them; they burn easily. You’ll find rice crackers in the ethnic food aisle. You can use any flavor, but the wasabi ones are very tasty.
