Thanks Chia for yet another very good meal! I did have some trouble putting it together. I used the large round rice paper but wrapping the salmon proofed to be more difficult then I thought, and I do use rice paper more often. The parcels were nice and crisp and the salmon juicy. The vegetables combined with the sauce were an excellent addition.
