    Used different ingredients. These spring rolls were very good. I used minced turkey instead of pork, dried black fungus in place of the mushrooms and left out the crab meat. This made about 14 rolls, but I think that when I do them the next time, I will use less filling in each one. Then I will be able to roll them more tightly, and they will be starter size, instead of meal size. I used the fish sauce recipe from Vietnamese Spring Rolls found on this site, and it was the perfect dipping sauce. My husband loved them, too, which is always a plus!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. I thought these were wonderful!! I used a minced chicken and pork mixture. I didn't have crab so eliminated that. I also added ginger, some cabbage and a bit of water chestnuts for a crunch. I used spring roll wrappers and wonton wrappers. They both worked great.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. Great Recipe, Sally! I left out the mushrooms and tossed in a minute amount of finely grated cabbage and 2t dried mustard. Sensational flavour. I sorely need some practice in forming the rolls, though!  -  29 Sep 2008
