It’s hot out! Whenever we have an August heat wave, I love making summer rolls. Most of the time you don’t even need to turn on the stove and you can create some hearty filling rolls! This time though, I wanted to fill them with some grilled meat and a fruit. I decided a super savory teriyaki would go great with sweet and piney mango. To go with this sweet and savory combo, I thought that basil and lots of chile pepper would help beat the heat and form a unique flavor combination!
I used a store bought teriyaki marinade for this recipe, but you can do homemade if you have a favorite! The sugar in the marinade helps the steak blacken on the grill. Cook the meat to a tender medium.
Basil and thin sliced chiles go on to the rice paper first. To prepare the rice paper just dip it into a water bath for about 2 seconds.
Mango goes down next. This will give the roll a pretty design on the exterior.
Some rice noodles followed by a few slices of that perfectly cooked teriyaki steak.
See what I mean by the pretty design?
Serve the rolls with a spicy sambol dipping sauce and you have yourself a light and refreshing meal or appetizer!
Serve these at your next get together on a warm summer night and your friends will go crazy.
The savory steak balances perfectly with the sweet mango, and the chile-basil combo is always a winner for me.
