Shrimp Egg Roll Recipe

These very flavorful egg rolls are a special treat and one of our favorite hot hors d'ouerves. They can be partially fried for re-heating later or cooked until golden brown.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Cook: 5 min./batch YIELD:9 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 celery ribs, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 pounds uncooked medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and chopped
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped water chestnuts
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Dash pepper
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 9 egg roll wrappers
  • Oil for deep-fat frying

  • 1 can (12 ounces) apricot cake and pastry filling
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, saute celery in butter until tender. Add shrimp and onions; cook until shrimp turns pink. Stir in the water chestnuts, peanut butter, salt, sugar, pepper and cayenne; heat through.

Fold bottom corner over filling. Fold sides toward center over filling. Moisten remaining corner with water; roll up tightly to seal. Repeat.
