This is a cross between a spicy sushi crab roll and a spring roll. Quick and easy to make with fresh ingredients. Also good with shrimp instead of crab. Serve with ponzu or sweet chile sauce for dipping.

Instructions Checklist
  • Shred crabmeat using 2 forks or in a food processor.

  • Mix crabmeat, mayonnaise, and sriracha sauce together in a small bowl.

  • Fill a shallow bowl with hot water to a depth of 2 inches. Dip 1 rice paper wrapper in the water for a few seconds to soften; set on a wooden cutting board or a clean, moist dish towel. Layer 1/4 of the cucumber, carrot, avocado, crabmeat mixture, and green onion in the bottom third of the rice paper.

  • Pull bottom of the rice paper over the filling, using your fingers to prevent it from spilling out the sides. Fold opposing edges of the rice paper to overlap the filling; roll up tightly towards the top. Place roll seam-side down on a plate. Repeat with remaining rice papers and cucumber, carrot, avocado, crabmeat mixture, and green onion.

We thought these were just okay... definitely fresh and tasty but you need to enjoy rice paper for sure. We dipped in chili garlic sauce. The avocado was the best part. Read More

What a fresh pretty and delicious dish! It was simple to make and healthy too. I used some cut up shrimp instead of crab which was awesome. The rice paper wrappers are surprisingly tough and easy to work with. I learned to remake my rolls as tight as possible so they don't crumble apart as you eat them. I served mine with the "Best Peanut Sauce" recipe from this site and they were a hit with my family. They're a perfect hot summertime light evening meal. Read More

These were good! I ended up doubling the Sriracha after tasting the crab mixture but that is the only change I made. You can actually get 6 rolls out of this recipe. Next time I will replace some of the carrot with bean sprouts for added texture. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Read More

These were awesome! I took the advice of another reviewer by chopping the green onion instead of leaving them long! I dipped them in a wasabi cream sauce. Great recipe, thank you!!! Read More

This recipe was great and surprisingly easy! The only recommendation I would make is to either chop the green onion or leave it out. When cut into matchsticks it makes it imposible to cleanly bite off pieces of the spring rolls and kinda feels like you re eating grass. Read More
