Shrimp Egg Rolls

There are certain foods that I enjoy so much, once I think about making them, I just have to do it. Shrimp egg rolls fall into that category for me. I have tried to satisfy that craving at every Chinese restaurant I’ve eaten at, but I have not found any really good ones in a long time. The sauce also makes a big difference, I love a good sweet and sour sauce. That’s also hard to find. These egg rolls are so good and I can make them any time I want! So why worry about finding good ones? These are easy and I can satisfy an egg roll craving any time I want.

Shrimp Puffs

I first started making these about fifteen years ago. I have no idea where the recipe originated, cookbook…maybe, magazine….maybe, online somewhere…maybe. All I know is that I really do love them and everyone I have served them to has loved them. I have been asked for the recipe many times. I usually make them when entertaining friends as an appetizer. But, the other night when I made them for this post on my blog, we had them for dinner. I’ll do that again, they made an excellent dinner! I even had enough left over to freeze for another time. I love having something yummy in the freezer to pull out quick!

Shrimp Cakes with Fresh Ginger

When I want to make something that is a little different for dinner, I have often turned to this recipe. I think it originally came from a newspaper cooking column, but I have lost the original. Lucky for me I had entered it into my recipes on the computer.  I’m not known for being super organized with my recipes, so if I really, really like something, I do try to get it on the computer. Have I mentioned that I have over 1000 cookbooks? Some of them are very old and I still buy new ones!  I also follow many blogs and have all my Grandmother’s and Mother’s recipe collections, no way will I ever get those on the computer, but I do like to go through them occasionally. I love many of the older types of recipes and I enjoy updating the methods of making them.
