I don't know about you, but I love to eat appetizers for dinner. Even at restaurants, many times I love their starters better than their entrees. Check out the Wild Buffalo Rolls at Moosehead Hoof and Ladder in Olmsted Falls. They are my favorite dinner there. So, in that same vein, here's an appetizer for dinner.
Interestingly, the picture of Ramsay's spring rolls looked like they were wrapped in wonton wrappers. I suppose it's possible that there are different kinds of spring roll wrappers. His look crispy and golden and delicious. Mine? O.K. The filling was good, but the unevenly crisped wrappers were a distraction. The chili sauce was a yummy dip. I won't make them again, but they weren't bad for a one time treat.
I'd say it took about 40 to45 minutes. I wasn't very adept at the rolling and I think it took too long to cook them in the oil. If they could have been submerged in the oil, that would have shaved off a bit of time. I think these would have been good as a side dish to a soup like a wonton soup or a hot and sour soup. Give it a try and let me know.
