How to make Shrimp Egg Rolls

The secret to great spring rolls is not only making the filling tasty but also rolling them correctly. First, make sure that you don’t add more filling than one teaspoon. Place your egg roll wrapper in a diamond shape (not a square), and place the filling on the bottom part of the wrapper. Start by folding over the bottom corner of the wrapper. Then continue rolling up the roll tightly. Before folding over the last corner, brush it with a bit of water to seal the edges.

Can I bake Shrimp Egg Rolls?

Instructions

In a large bowl mix together the shrimp, carrot, cabbage, bean sprouts, celery, and spring onion.

Add the garlic, grated ginger, light soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, and sriracha (optional).

Place a heaped teaspoon of this mix onto an egg roll wrap that is positioned like a diamond.

Bring the rear corner of the wrapper over the sausage and begin to wrap tightly. When around half way fold over the two corners to your left and right using a little water to secure.

Finish the roll and secure the final corner with a dab of more water.

When ready to cook heat your oil and shallow fry being careful as any escaping moisture from the spring roll will spit. You can use a high-sided pan if you wish.

Notes

If you have an Airfryer, you can also use it for this recipe. Simply brush the Shrimp Rolls with oil, and cook then at 350°F for 8 minutes, turning them halfway.
