Unlike typical egg rolls with their mishmash of filling, these keep the ingredients more distinct, similar to spring or summer rolls. Pan frying leaves them crisp without the mess of deep frying.

  • 12 Egg Roll Wrappers (8 Inches Each)
  • 12 Cooked Jumbo Shrimp (Peeled, Deveined, Split In Half Lengthwise)
