Pan-Fried Shrimp Egg Rolls

Pan-Fried Shrimp Egg Rolls are crispy without all the fuss!

The Sweet Chili Sauce adds a little kick… if you don’t like a hotter spicy flavor replace half the chili sauce with rice vinegar to tone it down a bit 🙂

A typical Egg Roll is deep fried which adds a lot of fat and it’s a big mess too… this version is healthier and still has that delightful crunch!

I hope you enjoy these Pan-Fried Shrimp Egg Rolls and that it’s a hit with your family.

I hope y’all had a nice and relaxing weekend!  Me? I just studied like crazy but I guess that’s the life of a Culinary student 🙂

Happy Monday!
