Corinne's Cabbage (Nappa) Rolls

Print Friendly and PDF
This is a Sasaki-family recipe from Corinne's mom's side of the family. Doesn't it look cute, like a little rose bud? It's a par-boiled nappa cabbage leaf that has been rolled up, cut, squeezed and served with a wonderful soy-vinegar sauce. It is a light and healthy appetizer, and the sauce is so tangy and flavorful. Your mouth will love it!

1 head of nappa cabbage

1 T sesame oil
2 T sugar
2 T soy sauce
2 T vinegar
1 tsp salt
Few drops Tabasco
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated

Separate and parboil nappa leaves for 2 minutes in boiling water. Dunk in cold water. Roll up each leaf from the stem end. Cut into slices 1/2" to 1" wide. Squeeze out excess water. Place the slices on a serving platter, cut side up, so you see the spiral. Serve with sauce.

Here's a photo of one side of Corinne's yard that she and Bill created.....a work of art, don't you think?
