Nori Crisps






Nori is commonly used as a wrap for sushi and onigiri. It is also a common garnish or flavoring in noodle preparations and soups. Here in this dish, nori is sandwiched with spring roll wrappers, fried into a most addictive snack. This would be an easy snack to serve for the
Chinese New Year.



Ingredients:

10 pcs seaweed sheets, cut into half
20 sheets spring roll wrappers
1 egg, lightly beaten for glazing

Oil for deep frying

Method:

Lay a piece of spring roll wrapper on the pastry board.
Brush with egg glaze
Place half a sheet of seaweed sheet on half of the spring roll wrapper.
Fold the spring roll wrapper to enclose seaweed sheet.
Roll it up like a you would roll a carpet and then cut into bite-size pieces or just cut into strips.

Heat oil in a wok.
Fry seaweed crisps until golden brown.
Remove from oil onto baking rack which has been lined with kitchen towel to absorb excess oil.

Let cool completely and store in air tight container.

Hi

Just timely for CNY! I have been searching for this recipe. The ready made ones are rather expensive RM35/kg ex-wholesale.

Thanks

Aunty,
Can we roll up the roll first and keep in the fridge for a few days before frying?

i fried them as soon as i finished rolling all of them. i think you could keep them in the fridge but i hope the egg will not make the nori soft.

Hi Lily,

I love these crisps! Just wondering if I can bake them instead deep frying?

i am sure you can bake them, you would have to spray or mist the surface of the spring roll skin with oil so that it will become crisp.

I was just introduced to this by a friend and it is very tempting to consume a whole container of this snack within 15 mins! They are expensive. I am glad that I found the recipe here, Lily! Thanks and wishing you ahead a Happy New Year of the Tiger!
