Another Great Dinner For A Hot Summer Night

 It is still above 95 degrees here in Albuquerque, New Mexico and there is now rain in sight. I don't feel like cooking so I found a great dinner idea for spring rolls on Face Book. So I searched Google for recipes and found one and made some changes using ingredients that I had in the house. Here is my version of spring rolls. I used fish that I made in the microwave.

I bought these cool rice papers at Talin Market  in Albuquerque but you can find them at oriental markets also.

I had some baby carrots and thawed frozen broccoli that I shredded in my food processor. The top plate is seaweed that I had left over from a sushi recipe.

First I got both sides of the rice paper wet, just place in a bowl of water for a couple of seconds. Lay the wet rice paper on a clean surface and layer all the ingredients in the middle of it. Since my fish was already seasoned I did not add any. If using unseasoned fish, just sprinkle it with salt and garlic to taste.

Then wrap the spring roll in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 15 minutes.

I them made a sauce to dip the spring rolls in.

1/4 cup soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons rice vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame seed oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
combine all ingredients in a dish. 

My husband enjoyed his with some wasabi also. These were great for a main course but they also make great appetizers.


  1. These look so good! And my hubby would go for the Wasabi too. I'd take just a wee bit myself.

  2. I bought this watch for my dad on this website on Father's Day. replica omega watchesThis watch has been bought since my father has been wearing it.
