Avocado Eggs Rolls
2 large ripe Avocados
1 Small Red Onion
2-3 Stalks of Culantro or the equivalent substitute of Cilantro
1 Tomato diced
1-2 Limes (to taste)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Package of Egg Roll Wrappers
Enough Peanut or Vegetable Oil for Frying
Cut the avocados into large chunks and squeeze the lime juice over it. The lime juice works in two ways here: it protects the flesh of the avocado from oxidizing and turning brown; and it also dials up the overall citrus flavor!
Add the diced red onions, culantro or cilantro, tomato, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate the mixture for a few hours to give the flavors a chance to properly come together.
After you remove it from the refrigerator, check the taste to see if it needs a bit more lime, salt, or other adjustments. This recipe is all to your taste. If it tastes good it IS good.
Take the egg roll wrappers, and turn one corner towards you. It should resemble a diamond more than a square. Place about 2 tablespoons of the filling across the center of the egg roll wrapper.
Pull the corner pointed toward you over the filling. Then pull the side corners over that. If you are looking down on the egg roll it should look like an opened envelope at this point.
Dip your finger in water and run it over the final corners of the egg roll wrapper to help create a seal, then wrap that final corner over the roll and seal.
Heat a pot with enough oil to cover the egg rolls. I prefer to use Peanut Oil. I think it gives the egg roll a better flavor. If not, you can use regular vegetable oil.
Once the oil is hot enough place the egg rolls in and fry until crisp and golden brown. It will only take a few moments to fry nicely. Keep your eyes on them, as they can easily go from golden brown to burned!
Finally, slice the egg rolls in half. You can serve this either with regular Chinese Duck Sauce. Or you can mix up a couple limes with some local honey, add the zest of the limes, and lightly drizzle over the rolls.
