Ingredients

For the Asian crab rolls:

  • ½ cup shredded napa cabbage
  • ½ cup julienned bok choy
  • ½ cup julienne carrots
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons green onions
  • 4 ounces cooked crab meat or shrimp
  • ¼ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 4 rice paper wrappers
  • 20 mint leaves

For the mango dipping sauce:

  • 1 cup chopped mango
  • ½ cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon garlic chili dipping sauce (above)
  • 3 tablespoons apple juice

Directions

For the Asian crab rolls:

In a mixing bowl, combine the cabbage, bok choy, carrots, ginger, garlic, green

onions, crab meat and sesame oil.

Soak the rice paper in a bowl of water, just until

softened.

To assemble, lay out the rice paper on a cutting board. Place two mint leaves in the

center of the paper. Place 1/4 cup of filling on top of the mint leaves. Fold

in the sides and roll up like a burrito.

Cut each spring roll in half on the diagonal. Serve with 1 tablespoon of each dipping sauce.

For the garlic chili dipping sauce:

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

For the mango dipping sauce:

Combine the mango, vinegar, chili sauce, and apple juice in a blender and puree. Pour into a bowl for dipping and stir in the cilantro.

Asian Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Asian Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
