Moo Shu Shrimp

This dish combines some of the ingredients for vegetable spring rolls with the assembly procedure for tacos, both dishes Aaron likes. Also, it provides another tasty vehicle for shrimp, an ingredient Julie wants to use more often.


4 servings (serving size: 1 cup shrimp mixture, 1 1/2 teaspoons hoisin sauce, and 2 tortillas)
