Forget Takeout...Take In

Imperial, California (NAPSI) - One of the best things about dining out are the mouthwatering appetizers. They’re special treats because they are often menu items that can be difficult to re-create at home.

With a little help from the frozen aisle of your favorite grocery store, it is simple to prepare showstopping appetizers that require very little culinary know-how. Companies like SeaPak Shrimp & Seafood Co. are now making products that are dead ringers for popular restaurant choices. For example, new SeaPak Shrimp Spring Rolls with Sweet Thai Chili Dipping Sauce bake to golden perfection in less than 15 minutes. The tender shrimp and crispy vegetables will have guests all wrapped up.

Grocery store products are often healthier than takeout, too. SeaPak Shrimp Spring Rolls contain less than 200 calories and when served alongside a crisp salad make a flavorful favorite more than just an appetizer. Serve this recipe to round out your menu, without rounding out your waistline.
