Mini Shrimp Rolls Recipe

Mini Shrimp Rolls Recipe

"These tasty tidbits make a great appetizer or even a mini meal," writes Jennifer Jones of Pine City, New York. "Plus, they're healthier than deep-fried egg rolls. I experimented with various ingredients to come up with the creamy filling...then baked the egg rolls to keep the fat lower."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound medium cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 6 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped cabbage
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 48 wonton wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons water

Directions

  • 1. Chop shrimp; set aside. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add mozzarella cheese. Stir in the cabbage, onions, carrot, soy sauce, garlic and shrimp.
  • 2. For each shrimp roll, place 1 tablespoon of shrimp mixture across the bottom third of wonton wrapper to within 1/4 in. of bottom and side edges. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.)
  • 3. Combine flour and water until smooth; brush a 1/4-in. wide strip on side edges and fold side edges over 1/4 in. Brush side edges and top edge with water mixture. Fold bottom third of wonton wrapper over filling, then bring top over and pinch edges to seal completely.
  • 4. Lightly spray rolls with cooking spray. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Serve warm. Yield: 4 dozen.
