Baked Shrimp Egg Rolls – Great Game Day Appetizer

Baked Shrimp Egg Rolls

Time to break out the appetizers and get ready for the big game. The divisional championships are this weekend and both mine and hubby’s teams are in it. I’m rooting for my red and gold (49ers) and he is cheering on the Broncos. There is a very real possibility we will have a 49er vs. Bronco’s Super Bowl. If so, watch out Utah!  Hubby and I will be having quite a bit of fun at each others expense with all the smack talk.

How about some snacks to go with the big game? Here are some delicious baked shrimp egg rolls sure to please the pickiest fan at your Super Bowl party. Since they are baked rather then deep fried, they are less greasy then the traditional egg rolls and have a lighter and fresher taste.  So if you are searching for the ultimate Super Bowl appetizer, look no further then these egg rolls. They can easily be assembled ahead of time and be ready to pop in the oven when you guests arrive.

Baked Shrimp Egg Rolls

Ingredients

  • 4 cups packaged cole slaw mix (dry)
  • 2 cans of tiny shrimp (drained and rinsed)
  • 2 scallions (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons lite soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 Large egg roll wrappers
  • dipping sauces of choice

Directions

Step 1
Baked Shrimp Egg Rolls
Take the slaw mix and pour it into a microwave safe bowl. Add 1/4 cup water and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove from the microwave and allow to cool. Drain off any excess liquid.
Step 2
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Add all of the other ingredients to the slaw mix except the wrappers mix and set aside.
Step 3
Baked Shrimp Egg Rolls
Place an egg roll wrapper on a clean dry surface. Add aprox a 1/2 cup of the mixture onto the wrapper, in a row across the center from corner to corner, leaving some room on the edge. Fold the wrapper like an envelope around the mix, folding the bottom up, then the sides in, then fold the "flap" over. With your finger, seal the edges together with a dab of water. Repeat until all the wrappers and mix are gone. Place the egg rolls on a lightly sprayed cooking sheet.
Step 4
Spray the egg rolls lightly with cooking spray then bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with dipping sauces of your choice. I personally like Frank's Red Hot Sweet Chili Sauce.

These are delicious and are great as a side dish to your favorite Asian style meal as well as a party appetizer. I used Franks Red Hot Sweet Chili sauce as my dip and hubby preferred a fish sauce or an oyster sauce over that. I found I did not need to add any extra soy sauce to the shrimp egg rolls since there was just enough flavor inside with the shrimp. And, my hands were not left greasy since these were baked not fried.

So whether you are rooting for the 49ers or one of the other teams, your guests will be munching happily on egg rolls. Go team!!!
