  1. Using cheese in spring rolls is a quite bold move. But who knows, sometimes the most surprising flavor combinations may work.

  2. Crispy cheesy fried goodness? I’m there!

    The cheddar cheese doesn’t get it for me, but I tried it again with a heaping tsp of cream cheese and a bit of jalapeno. The presentation is spectacular

    Hi RM. Thank u for the beautiful recipe. Just a quick question. So i have to put the cheese first n the prawn on top before wrapping it up? I can’t tell from ur pictures. Also if i cube the cheese wont it be hard to wrap? Would shredded cheese work better?

    • My step-by-step photos were shot on a separate day, they were meant as guide. You can put the shrimp and then cheese later. I put the cheese into very small cubes so it’s a matter of sprinkling a little of them on top of the shrimp. :)

    The marinate part of 2.5 tsp salt ended up this spring roll is super salty.. even I’ve reduced the salt content to half..
