“Wonderful Appetizer! You can also make these to take along on a picnic - keep in a cooler if you use shrimp or other meat or have them vegetarian. Try using left over chicken, vegetables or other meats. In Korea this is called "Pajon" and is a typical street vendor food. Use chopsticks or you fingers. This recipe was originally from Eating Well Magazine (1993)”
