Seafood Rolls

I wanna start off by saying I love love love these seafood rolls. I started making these after my dad told me about them. He had them in a restaurant and wanted me to recreate them because according to him he could eat dozens. So my first go around I tried them and gave them my best shot. I couldn’t pin point the actual roll part of these rolls. It was very frustrating since everything else was so straight forward. Fortunately for me I was working with not one, but two people that worked for that restaurant that were more than willing to give it to me. When they said it filo dough, I felt a calm in the world and a little silly because now it’s painfully obvious.The original recipe calls for a alfredo sauce on the inside of the roll. I opted out of that because it seems kind of unnecessary. I think the first time I made them at home I made a alfredo sauce for the side. But I’ve made these rolls numerous time and you aren’t missing anything without the sauce. I mix and match with my favorite shellfish.Try these out I promise you’ll love them!

  1. Totally agree. Also the sauce inside makes them lose that delicious crunch fairly quickly.
