I made these Vietnamese Crab Spring Rolls with my sister, Petra for our sushi fest. Just a little something to serve alongside the sushi rolls.
I confess I didn’t take pictures of the procedure, so I included a video on how to make the rolls, so you can see. You can fill them with anything you want, shrimp, crab, or chicken. I put some pickled ginger inside as part of the ingredients, it gives it a fresh bite.
