Perhaps I did not execute well. The expense and assembly time of the shrimp boil did not seem worth it. I felt the flavor was bland for the effort.

WOW!! My husband and I are real ethnic food junkies but unfortunately live in a VERY rural area, so satisifying our craving for sushi, spring rolls, well pretty much anything of that nature, is out of the question. I highly recommend this recipe to anyone. I used the Thai Dipping Sauce for Spring Wrap or Egg Rolls Thai Dipping Sauce for Spring Wrap or Egg Rolls, great combo! Thanks nanunanu
