We didn’t use shrimp in our egg rolls this week… And Toshiko added her secret ingredient (peanut butter) to the recipe… Both classes had the recipe with peanut butter and without. They will let you know their preference when you cook these at home. Also Toshiko said that she uses cornstarch and water as the sealer for the egg rolls. I didn’t have any at our kitchen so we did not use that method.
