Recipe by tasmith1

This is a recipe that I made for my Wife and her sisters for their supper club. I used AussieChef's recipe for Peanut-Lime Vinaigrette to give it an Asian flare. Thanks AussieChef! They're a great, make ahead appetizer and really delicious the next day too. They loved them so here it is...
