Releasing my inner boffin...........
Found this product in an Asian Supermarket and was dying to use it. I have absolutely no prior experience in handling or eating them, but that never stops me......
Rice paper must be softened before use. Simply immerse them, one sheet at a time, in a warm water. Soak them until they are soft, approximately 1 minute. Drain them on a clean kitchen towel before folding in the filling.
Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls
for the filling I'm using
spring onion, finely chopped
crab stick, shredded
Fry all ingredients in a little oil. Add in salt, turmeric, sugar and pepper.
You may sprinkle in fried shallots and coarsely chopped peanut into the filling before rolling them into a burrito-like package.
For the dipping sauce, I used
Hoisin sauce with lime juice and chopped chillies added to it.
