Crab Spring Rolls from watching Sam the Cooking Guy

I just watched Sam the Cooking Guy and I don't want to forget this recipe that I saw.  I Googled, but I couldn't find this exact recipe online, so I am going to try and write it out here so I don't forget how to make it. This is from memory. I do not have TIVO or a DVR today. If anyone wants to add information to this recipe, please leave a comment, especially if your name is Sam.


Spring Roll Wrappers
2 Carrots
3-4 Green Onions
Lump Crab in a Can
Soy Sauce
Peanut Oil
Napa or Asian Cabbage
Chili Paste
Entoki Mushrooms

Put a wok on the stove to heat up.
Cut the Carrots and Green Onions thin like matchsticks. 
Put the carrots in the wok and then add a bit of oil (1 TBSP?)
Add the Green Onions.
Stir fry until slightly softened.  The vegetables should not be too soft.
Put the Cooked Vegetables into a Large Bowl.
Add the Lump Crab to the Vegetable Mix, enough to make up a large percentage of the mix, maybe 40-60% crab.
Add a bit of Soy Sauce (maybe 1/4 cup?) and stir it in.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the top off of the Cabbage.
Slice some Cabbage thinly to be stuffed in the wrapper with the Crab Vegetable Mix.

Lay out a Spring Roll Wrapper like a diamond.
Put a couple of spoonfuls of Filling on the Wrapper.
Put a Spoonful of Cabbage on the Wrapper.
Fold the bottom corner of the diamond up to the middle of the filling.
Fold in the side corners of the wrapper.
Put a bit of water on your finger and brush the inside of the bottom corner of the wrapper and fold it up so it sticks to the roll.
Brush some Peanut Oil on the outside of the Spring Roll so that it crisps up in the oven.
Repeat until you have a tray full of Spring Rolls ready to put in the oven.

Put the tray of Spring Rolls into your oven.
Cook until crispy and golden.

While the rolls are cooking, mix up the sauce.

Add equal amounts of Chili Paste, Soy Sauce, and honey to a small bowl.
Mix and adjust to taste, making sure it is liquid enough to drizzle on your Spring Rolls.

Take the Rolls out of the oven.
Lay out some Mushrooms on a plate.
Slice the rolls on a diagonal.
Put the rolls on the mushroom plate. 
Drizzle Sauce on top and around the plate.

Serve and Enjoy!

Pictures to come once I follow my notes.  Adjustments may be made at that time.  Please let me know if you give this one a try.
