Mom’s Gifted Egg Rolls with
When my parents immigrated to the US, they were warmly welcomed into their new community. So, every year for the holidays, my mother showed her gratitude by making dozens of egg rolls (with her kids as sous chefs), which we would package in foil and a bow to give out as gifts to the neighbors. These egg rolls, and that act of gratitude, are the reason why I cook.
This dish is packed with complex flavors and textures that are firmly bundled together. Before enjoying the egg roll, wrap it in a cool, fresh red lettuce leaf and dip it in the flavorful fish sauce. When you take your first bite, you will taste the richness of the seasoned pork, the flavors of the sea from the crab and shrimp, and the finely minced vegetables that cut through the protein. All of it is enjoyed with a side of pickled daikon to complement the egg rolls.
