    1                    recipe Sauce for Party Shrimp -- (9/05/98 mcrecipe
                         -- digest 1640) for
                         -- accompaniment
    1                    recipe Terry’s Dipping Sauce -- for accompaniment
 1) In a large bowl, mix together everything with a spoon except the egg roll
 wrappers and oil.  Stir gently, trying to keep the ingredients as unmashed as
 possible.  Cook a small amount of the filling in a small skillet or microwave
 so that you can check the seasonings.  Add more pepper, soy sauce and Accent
 if you want.  Chill the filling for 1 hour, or until firm.
 2) Slice each egg roll wrapper in half lengthwise.  In a deep-fryer or deep,
 heavy pot, pour in the corn oil to a 3-inch depth.  Heat the oil until a
 dropped-in bread cube sizzles instantly.  (If using a frying thermometer, the
 oil should be about 360 degrees F.) Fill a small bowl with water and keep it
 near your work surface.
 3) To make the egg rolls, spread 1 tablespoon of filling evenly along the long
 top edge of each halved wrapper, leaving a half-inch border.
 4) Fold the border over the line of filling.  With your forefinger, paint a
 line of water along the folded-over border.  Roll up the wrapper as tightly as
 you can, sealing it with another line of water applied with your finger.
 Using water as a sealant will keep the rolls from unwrapping.
 5) With a sharp knife, cut each thin, thin egg roll into thirds - 3 small,
 thin egg rolls.  Using a slotted spoon, slip the egg rolls a few at a time
 into the hot oil and fry them, turning them often, until they are brown and
 crispy.  Drain and serve them immediately.
 6) The sauce is optional.  Besides the 2 sauces listed above, some mix equal
 parts soy sauce and white vinegar, adding minced fresh ginger and scallions to
 Makes 120 tiny egg rolls.
