Comments on this Recipe

I made these for a group and they were a huge hit. The dipping sauce is especially good! They are not complicated, but they do take a little bit of prep time and practice with the rice wrappers. Try adding bean spouts to the filling!

These were quite easy to make, the dipping sauce was tangy and satisfying. I recommend them for an appetizer party or a starter. Will defiantly be making this recipe again.

Loved it!
