kmi1042

Ingredients

4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1-inch grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 scallions, sliced thinly
1 carrot, cut into 1-inch julienne strips
1 small red pepper, cut into 1-inch julienne strips
1 cup Napa cabbage, shredded
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons sesame oil
20 wonton wrappers covered loosely with a damp paper towel to prevent drying
10 shrimps, cooked and minced

Directions:

Stir-fry the ginger and garlic in 2 tablespoons of oil in a wok or skilet until it begins to become fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add scallions, carrots, and red pepper and stir-fry over high heat for about 2 minutes.

In a medium bowl, combine the chicken broth, soy sauce, and sugar. Add the Napa cabbage and broth mixture. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft. Add sesame oil, cool for at least 15 minutes, and strain. Fold in the minced shrimp.

Fill and roll the egg roll wrappers, using 1 tablespoon of filling for each roll. Working with 1 wonton wrapper at a time, place the wrapper with one corner of the diamond closest to you. Place 1 teaspoon of the filling in the center of the wrapper. Roll the corner closest to you over the filling. Brush the top corner with water. Fold in the sides of the wonton and continue rolling the egg roll up until it is closed. Press to seal, set aside, and continue with the remaining ingredients.

In a skillet set over moderately high heat, heat the remaining oil and saute the egg rolls until golden brown on all sides, using tongs to turn them. Serve when cool enough to eat, with dipping sauce.
