Pan-Fried Egg Rolls

Rather than the usual filling mishmash, these family-tradition egg rolls keep the ingredients more distinct, similar to spring or summer rolls. The family likes to pan-fry these so they're crisp without the fuss and mess of deep-frying. You'll find sweet chili sauce in the Asian foods section of most supermarkets.

Cooking Light JUNE 2010

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 egg roll and 1 1/2 teaspoons sauce)
  • Hands-on: 25 Minutes
  • Total: 39 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce, divided
  • 12 ounces fresh bean sprouts, chopped
  • 12 (8-inch) egg roll wrappers
  • 12 cooked jumbo shrimp, peeled, deveined, and split in half lengthwise (about 13 ounces)
  • 6 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons less-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

1. Combine 3 tablespoons chili sauce and bean sprouts, tossing well to coat.

2. Working with 1 egg roll wrapper at a time (cover remaining wrappers to prevent drying), place wrapper onto work surface with 1 corner pointing toward you (wrapper should look like a diamond). Spoon about 2 heaping tablespoons bean sprout mixture into center of wrapper; top with 2 shrimp halves and 1 1/2 teaspoons cilantro. Fold lower corner of wrapper over filling; fold in side corners. Moisten top corner of wrapper with water; roll up jelly-roll fashion. Place egg roll, seam side down, on a baking sheet. Repeat procedure with remaining wrappers, bean sprout mixture, shrimp, and cilantro.

3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 6 egg rolls, seam side down; cook 7 minutes or until golden, turning occasionally. Place on a wire rack. Repeat procedure with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and 6 egg rolls.

4. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon chili sauce, vinegar, and remaining ingredients. Serve sauce with egg rolls.
