Deep Fried Seaweed Fish Paste Rolls

This dish is similar to another dish I did earlier. Except there are extra steps to this dish. But it's pretty simple too.

  • 2 sheets of Nori
  • 200g Fish paste
  • 1/2 carrot, grated
  • 1 stalk Spring onions, diced finely
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Flour with water (Batter)
How to do it:
  1. Mix fish paste, carrots and spring onions together.
  2. Take a piece of nori, spread fish paste thinly on the nori, leaving 1.5 cm of one side free of fish paste.
  3. Lay another piece of nori on top and spread the fish paste again.
  4. Roll (like sushi) the nori starting from the side with the fish paste.
  5. The end of the nori should be enough to 'close' up the roll.
  6. Cut the roll into half if you find it difficult to handle.
  7. Dip into batter and deep fry till it is cooked.
  8. Cut the roll into smaller pieces and serve.
As the roll is thicker so I use the deep fry method. The outer layer of nori will be crunchy. *Do some adjustments to a dish and you have a new dish. ^_-


  1. wow yr family loves nori huh? I hve no fans here.

  2. The kids love it. Good replacement for vegetables.

  3. You're creative. Can add another layer of beancurd skin 腐皮 with the nori (seen it in some cooking show before) :P

  4. Tigerfish,
    Hmmmm ... I think I'll try that. It will be colourful but I have to really clean it really well bcos it's really salty + the fish paste also salty...

    Do you know the proper way to dry it so it will not be salty? I use damp cloth to clean both side but I still think it's salty.

  5. wow, this is so much healthier than those spring roll/bean curd wraps. Great use of the noris, what a great change :)

    Thanks! I'm just glad the kids love it too. Bcos it's difficult to get them to eat their greens.

  7. Oops, I would clean the beancurd skin like what you did too. I just bought some today (fresh ones) from the frozen section. Dunno if it'll be salty.
    Maybe you can use minced prawn and/or chicken as the filling instead of fish paste so that it's less salty ?

  8. Tigerfish
    I did one using pork
    But I still find it salty. Maybe the one you bought is a better choice?
