    Nicole Isabella's Note:

    In Morocco, briwats can be stuffed with sweet or savory fillings. This is a savory filling that is somewhat modern in origin. This recipe is an adaptation of both my Moroccan mother-in-law's version (though she adds garlic) and a recipe found in the book "Cooking at the Kasbah" by Kitty Norse. Some people also add soy sauce to the mixture (a sure sign of the recipe's modernity; soy sauce, as you can imagine, is not "native" to Morocco!) :) These are yummy snacks and surprisingly light, despite being fried. Do try to find the lumpia wrappers--briwats should not be doughy, but instead light and crispy, and the lumpia wrappers do the job nicely.

      I made this recipe to bring to a party and everyone who likes shrimp enjoyed it. I used phyllo dough to wrap them in and shaped them like egg rolls. I used Asian rice noodles instead of rice vermicelli. They are time consuming, so if you think you are going to like them, make more than one recipe at a time. I froze them first and they came out just perfect. I allowed them to thaw, then I baked them in a greased pan for 15 minutes at 350 degrees F.
