What's your best healthy egg roll recipe?

Asked by Ltryptophan (9105 points ) September 11th, 2011

It’s difficult to get the pork cured just right, and I’m that serious about it.

So from start to finish, with the only shortcuts being maybe the wontons are premade, how do you roll?

Well, I had a Vietnamese woman show me how to make chicken egg rolls. The only thing I really remember is that she used raw chicken. She said, “You Americans always cook your meat twice! The chicken will cook when you fry the egg roll!” I never made the egg rolls, but that perfectly logical observation changed the way I cook some dishes anyway.

Do you ever make burritos? You roll egg rolls the same way. Tuck the ends in and just roll them up tight. It takes a little practice.

I like to fry the wonton and then put the contents on the flat instead of stuffed inside. I pan fry the wonton in very light olive oil.

And last, but not least, here is one for baked salmon eggrolls

You can even make your own hoisin sauce

This one might be good with the salmon, lemon mustard dipping sauce

This one is technically a marinade for Korean barbecue, but I think it would make a great dipping sauce too.
