    Dancer^'s Note:

    Instead of being fried, like Chinese egg rolls, these appetizers are served fresh, letting the textures and flavors of the vegetable and shrimp filling shine through. Serve with the easy dipping sauce. Points 3.

      "Light, fresh, crunch". That was my partners review and he insisted that I make a cookbook and name it Doug's Faves....lol...and this is the first recipe in it. We really loved this recipe, it is low in fat, tasty, healthy and the sauce was perfect. And it was very visually pretty. Thank you so much for a recipe that we will enjoy making again and again.
