Holiday Appetizers Made Easy with Rich's SeaPak Spring Rolls!

'Tis the season for office parties, get togethers with friends, and family gatherings - and of course you don't want to show up empty handed! Stop wracking your brain for the perfect, made from scratch, dinner party recipe {because sometimes, ain't nobody got time for that} arrive bearing the gift of yummy food, with a delicious holiday appetizer from Rich's SeaPak

I'm a stay at home mom, and I thoroughly enjoy cooking, but in general I cook at least twice a day, at least six days a week. And while I enjoy showing off my skills to people outside of my household, sometimes I just need a break! Quick and easy appetizers like Rich's SeaPak Shrimp Spring Rolls are perfect for such occasions.

Rich's SeaPak Shrimp Spring Rolls are quick and easy to make {you can either fry or bake them} and DELICIOUS! I have to admit, I'm a bit of an egg/spring roll snob {they are the determining factor as to whether I will dine at a Asian restaurant again}, and these definitely made the grade! The wrapper is delightfully crispy and the filling is bright, fresh, and tasty. 

They even come packed with a delicious sweet and spicy chili sauce, but if you want to get snazzy, you can prepare this Spicy Peanut Ginger Dipping Sauce {recipe from}

PREP TIME: 5 minutes
COOK TIME: 10 minutes
MAKES: 4 servings

8 SeaPak Shrimp Spring Rolls
1⁄2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Prepare spring rolls according to package directions and keep warm while preparing dipping sauce.

To a blender, add the remaining ingredients along with ½ cup warm water and blend until smooth. If mixture is too thick, add more warm water a tablespoon at a time. Serve alongside warm spring rolls.

You can find even more yummy recipes and easy meal ideas by following SeaPak on Pinterest!

So if your hubby lets you know about the company potluck dinner at the last minute, your friends invite you to an impromptu gathering, or you get unexpected visitors - don't stress yourself out! At under $10 a box, it's easy to keep a few boxes of SeaPak Spring Rolls in your freezer for any occasion. They even make a great after school {or any time} snack or can be part of a healthy, quick dinner. Until next time...
