I'm using yellowtail for the easy spring roll recipe.

And I love fishing for yellowtail, although yellowtail

fishing can be tough. In order to catch a yellowtail,

I usually pull out every trick in the book. The world

of yellowtail fishing can be far more cruel than one

Yellowtail Easy Spring Roll Recipe & Honey Chili

Dipping Sauce (serves 4)

2 pounds yellowtail fillets

1 packet rice paper

1/2 cup rice wine vinegar for basting & dipping sauces

2 tablespoons of chili garlic sauce

1 bottle Hoisin sauce

¼ cup of honey

¼ cup of vegetable oil


1 lime

Yellowtail Easy Spring Roll Recipe

1. Season the yellowtail fillets with salt and pepper. Grill

for 1-2 minutes per side. While the yellowtail fillets are

grilling create the basting sauce by combining ¼ cup of

vegetable oil and ¼ cup rice wine vinegar. Add salt and

pepper and mix vigorously until thoroughly mixed. After

the yellowtail fillets have cooked, immerse the fillets in

the basting sauce, allowing the fillets to reach room

temperature. Shred the yellowtail with a fork, and place

back into the bath of basting sauce.

2. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add fresh rice

noodles and cook for no more than 10 seconds. Allow

rice noodles to cool to room temperature.

3. Create the dipping sauce by combining the honey,

chili garlic sauce, rice wine vinegar, and the juice of

one lime. Mix thoroughly to ensure the honey blends

with the other ingredients.

4. To create the spring rolls thoroughly wet a piece

of rice paper with cold water and place it on the work

surface. Add about 2 tablespoons of watercress,

shredded yellowtail, rice noodles, shredded carrots,

and chives. Roll by folding the left and right sides in,

and rolling the rice paper up from the bottom. Place

the springs rolls side-by-side on a platter, then add

several drops of Hoisin sauce to each spring roll,

and spread with a brush. Sprinkle sesame seeds on

top and serve with dipping sauce.
