Look, Ma! No silverware!

Hmmm. Not much flavor, either.

I really wanted to make nice chilled fresh summer rolls with shrimp and basil. Unfortunately, I had gathered all but one important ingredient at Stop&Shop this weekend when I learned that they did not carry that last ingredient - the summer roll rice wrapper. Kind of important... I couldn't put all of the other stuff back, so I improvised, deciding upon baked shrimp eggrolls and chicken lettuce wraps.

The lettuce wraps were OK. However, you can't bake eggroll wrappers: they're little square sheets of pasta, so to me, there were parts that tasted like the edges of an overdone lasagna. I really have to get over my fear of deep frying...right after I buy a fire extinguisher.
