Shrimp Egg Roll, Chả Giò Cuốn Tôm

Shrimp Egg Roll, Chả Giò Cuốn Tôm, is a super simple Vietnamese appetizer. It is whole shrimp, simply marinated with oyster sauce and sugar, rolled in egg wrappers then deep-fried.

It comes with a side of a sweet chili dipping sauce. It’s fancy-looking, delicious, and a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. I made the mistake of making a small batch. Avoid the fist fights and double the recipe.

This recipe uses only five ingredients: Shrimp, egg roll wrapper, oyster sauce, sugar, and an egg.


  • 1 lb headless shrimp (peel, devein and leave tails on to make a "handle")
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • ½ teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 packet spring roll / lumpia / egg roll wrappers (I typically use Menlo brand)
  • 1 egg
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Bottled sweet chili dipping sauce or make your own


Shrimp / Egg Wash (Sealing Mixture)
    1. Cut the stack of egg roll wrappers in half at a diagonal. Pull apart slowly to separate into individual sheets.

  1. Deep fry the shrimp egg rolls at 375°F without overcrowding (about 2 minutes per batch or until golden brown).
  2. Transfer fried shrimp egg rolls from the oil to a wire rack or a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
  3. Serve immediately with a side of sweet chili dipping sauce for best results. Enjoy and smile widely.
