Really good! I didn't have any fresh coriander leaves so used a mixture of other fresh herbs. It's the first time I've fried rice paper but it came out wonderfully crispy and light. I served with home-made coleslaw but would also be great with dipping sauces because it has a firm texture so would be easy to pick up and dip.
