Shrimp Phyllo Spring Rolls Credits: Jodi Pudge
Serve these spring rolls with hoisin or plum sauce for dipping and a sprinkling of chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro for a Thai-inspired garnish.
In large nonstick skillet or wok, heat sesame oil over medium-high heat; sauté coleslaw until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Add shrimp, garlic and ginger; sauté until shrimp are slightly pink and opaque, about 2 minutes.
Add green onions, cilantro and salt; sauté for 1 minute. Scrape into bowl; refrigerate until lukewarm, about 20 minutes. Drain, discarding any excess liquid.
Place 1 sheet of the phyllo on work surface; keep remaining sheets covered with damp towel (to prevent drying out). Lightly brush phyllo with some of the butter. Top with second sheet of the phyllo; lightly brush with some of the remaining butter. Cut layers in half lengthwise. Spoon 1/4 cup of the shrimp mixture onto 1 short end of each half; roll up phyllo, 1 half at a time, folding in ends. Arrange, seam side down, on parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet; lightly brush with some of the remaining butter. Repeat with remaining phyllo, butter and shrimp mixture. Bake in 400°F oven until golden, about 18 minutes. Serve warm.
Makes 8 pieces.
Herbed Cheese Pinwheels Credits: Jodi Pudge
These savoury cheese-filled pastries come together in minutes and can be personalized to suit your tastes. Try cooked bacon and Cheddar, sun-dried tomatoes and mozzarella, or sliced pitted olives and Havarti.
On parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheet, unroll pastry.
In bowl, stir together red peppers, Fontina, Parmesan, basil and garlic; sprinkle over pastry. Tightly roll up pastry. Arrange, seam side down, on sheet of waxed paper; wrap in waxed paper, twisting ends to seal. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
Remove waxed paper. Using serrated knife, slice pastry into scant 1/2-inch thick rounds. Arrange, 1 inch apart, on parchment paper– lined rimless baking sheet. Bake in 400°F oven, turning once, until golden, about 20 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool completely. Store in airtight container for up to 2 days.) Serve warm or at room temperature.
Makes about 18 pieces.
