I finally worked up the nerve to try the frozen egg rolls that Cuong’s mom bought for us a little while back. I love Vietnamese egg rolls, but I had never tried to fix them before. Granted, all I had to do was pull them out of the freezer and fry them in some oil…I was worried. I’m not a big “fryer”.
Nevertheless, I plopped them into the oil and crossed my fingers. I knew that the filling inside had not been cooked, so I was trying to figure out how to know the inside was cooked, without burning the skin.
Taaadaaaa! I just winged it, and they turned out fantastic! They were yummy, just like the fresh egg rolls you can buy. We had them with some shrimp and teriyaki noodles (straight out of the Lipton/Knorr brand package). Yum! Shrimp are generally quick and easy to fix. They have their own built-in thermometer to let you know when they are ready!
