Sea-crab Spring Rolls

Spring rolls are a mainstay in Vietnamese cuisine. While the typical filling consists of pork, this recipe offers a refreshing touch with crab meat.


  • 1 boiled sea-crab, tender white meat
  • 100g prawns, diced to the size of pomegranate seeds
  • 150g minced pork
  • 10 dried mushrooms, soaked
  • 2-3 soaked fungus
  • 150g cassava
  • 150g carrots
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 30g vermicelli (made of cassava)
  • 2 minced onions
  • 4-5 green onion
  • 1 tsp minced pepper
  • 20 pieces rice paper
  • Green papaya, carrots trimmed in the shape of flowers and squeezed with a little salt so that excess water is expelled
  • Bamboo string (for fastening spring roll while frying)


  • 500ml hot water
  • 50ml fish sauce
  • 80ml rice vinegar
  • 50g sugar
  • Minced pepper, chili, garlic, vinegar

  2. Fry crab roe with purple onion and cooking oil.
  3. Mix all ingredients (except for crabmeat) including pork, prawn, vegetables, egg yolks, fried crab-roe and pepper in a big bowl.
