  • Shrimps should be steamed or boiled with a little lemongrass, white wine, peppers to taste better and have a better color. When boiling the shrimp, it turns reddish pink, shrinks and is cooked; it should not be boiled for too long otherwise it would be dry. 
  • Flexibly replace ingredients to roll onions according to your taste such as boiled meat with pork paste, roasted small shrimp, boiled large shrimp; add fried tofu, carrots to increase the appealing color of the dish.
  • Sweet and sour sauce prepared in the ratio of filtered water, lemon, vinegar, sugar, fish sauce is 5:1:1:1. Sugar should be stirred in a mixture of vinegar and water. Then, add the fish sauce, then finally add minced chili and garlic (not minced) so that they float on the surface of the sauce.
