Fried Seaweed Roll

by Jason

One of the lesser known dim sum dishes, the seaweed roll is often overlooked and neglected by most, then scooped up by dim sum aficionados – don’t be that person!

Chopped up shrimp mixed with (imitation) crab meat is rolled up in seaweed wrap – nori sheets, the same stuff they wrap maki rolls with – battered then deep fried. The fry adds an nice shatter of crispy batter to each bite. The unmistakeable aroma of the smokey nori hugging plump and toothsome melange of crustacean is served with a savoury mayo sauce or sweet kool-aid reduction that supposed to be a cherry sauce. Either option is great.

It’s true that i’ve never seen this in Hong Kong. But it really looks good! Where is this one served? *crossing my fingers for Tong Por*

You can find it at Red Ruby, Kam Fung… Not sure about Tong Por, but it’s usually found on the same cart as the fried squid.

not trying to be offense here, but you should really make some chinese friends and ask their opinion.

No offence taken. I have lots of Chinese friends, what opinion do you suggest me asking them for? Thanks for commenting!
