If you are talking about the rice paper rolls, I have made "summer rolls" (unfried) by putting chicken and shrimp salad in the ricepapers and rolling them and cutting for serving. it;s a nice way to do it.

I second what Gretchen said-- summer rolls are really tasty!  I've made both the tofu and the shrimp versions from this recipe:

You can use little tidbits of leftover meat or fish.

Things other than the usual spring rolls (post #71632, reply #3 of 4)

Hi...I've just discovered spring roll wrappers myself, and I love them!  Endless ideas!  One I like is to make up some finely chopped (no big chunks) apples (cored/peeled), just like you would for making an applie pie, only smaller pieces.  A little sugar, cinnamon, nothing fancy.  I spread a bit of melted butter on the inside of a wrap, put a tablespoon of the apple mixture in the middle, fry, drain and roll in a little powdered sugar.  Delicious!  I make mine more of the "less fat/low sugar" style, but there's so much you can do.  It's almost like an apple fritter, only lighter, and portion control-wise better for you :)

Suzvw1, that sounds really good-- do you shallow-fry them?
