Crab and Avocado Rice Paper Rolls

It's always great to eat a light and refreshing meal - especially in the hot, humid summer of Arkansas!  This is made even easier by my local Kroger Marketplace because they're carrying more international food ingredients, so I don't have to go all the way to Southwest Little Rock to get what I need at Vietnam Market or Sam's Oriental!  You can pick up spring roll wrappers now in the international food section.
Gianna loves sushi.  She's always asking for it.  I decided that this would be a great way to give her the flavors she loves without having to actually make the sushi rice, and all that fanning, etc.

  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Package imitation crab
  • Cilantro
  • Rice paper
  • Sweet Chili Sauce
  1. Take one piece of rice paper, and run it under warm water in the sink, or dunk it into a shallow dish of water.
  2. Lay it on a plate.  It will take about 2 minutes for the rice paper to get soft.  Shred the crabstick into little noodle - like strips, and lay onto the rice paper.  Add strips of avocado, and cilantro.
  3. Fold in the left and right hand sides of the rice paper, then roll away from you.  Dip in sweet chili sauce.


  1. Hello and welcome to eRecipeCards... So happy to have you. Your recipe is up and posted (sounds delicious). I needed to come into your blog and grab a photo (hope you are happy with my choice and crop, drop me a note if you would like it changed). Only suggestion would be to try to resize to a smaller photo(that will make your blog load faster as well. I just spent a week visiting family, all they had was dial up, so i am resizing photos on my blog even smaller).

    BUT, I always take a look at your submissions and make sure they are coming through to make you look your best. Feel free to submit any of your back stock of posts you like, as well as making us a habit whenever you post anything new


  2. Thanks Dave! The photo looks great - I will post more when I can. Also, I like your blogs!

  3. I love cooking all types of foods, would love some new recipes.
