Thai Crab Rolls

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the crabmeat, mayonnaise, tamarind paste, chile pepper and salt. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the mixture onto the center of a spring roll square. Fold one corner up just past the filling, and press to seal. Brush the open section of the roll with egg yolk. This does not just seal the roll, it also crisps it. Fold the two corners on either side of the folded corner towards the center. Roll up the filling tightly towards the remaining point. Seal the point with a little more egg if necessary. Repeat with remaining wrappers.
  2. Add enough oil to a heavy skillet to cover the rolls about half way. Heat over medium-high heat until oil is sizzling hot. Fry rolls a few at a time for 45 to 50 seconds, until golden. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  3. To make the dipping sauce, combine the rice vinegar, soy sauce, garlic clove and sugar in the container of a blender or food processor. Process until smooth.
  4. To serve, line a serving platter with lettuce leaves, and place a small bowl of the dipping sauce in the center. Arrange crab rolls on top of lettuce leaves around the dip.

The tamarind/sugar proportions do not permit the flavor of the crab to reach the palate.

We just did not care for this recipe. Spring roll wrappers were too thing for the filling; an egg roll wrapper may have worked better. The filling is too intense with solid crab. Could have u...
