  • Yield: 8 first-course servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Hot Sesame Drizzle
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onions
  • 1/2 cup finely diced celery
  • 1 cup finely shredded napa or white cabbage
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup finely grated carrots
  • 1/2 pound (1 cup) peeled crawfish tails
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons untoasted sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 turns freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Emerilís Creole Seasoning
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten in 2 separate bowls
  • 8 egg roll skins
  • 6 cups vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup dry mustard, combined with 1/4 cup water

Directions

  • Prepare the Hot Sesame Drizzle, and set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over high heat. When the oil is hot, add the onions, celery, and cabbage and sautÈ for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and carrots and sautÈ, stirring and shaking the skillet, for 1 minute. Add the crawfish tails and sautÈ, shaking the skillet, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and pour the mixture into a bowl.
  • To the crawfish mixture, add the sesame oil, sesame seeds, salt, pepper, Creole Seasoning, and 2 of the eggs.
  • Lay the egg roll skins on a flat surface and brush them with some of the remaining egg. Place one-eighth of the filling on one end of each skin, leaving a 1/4-inch border at the top and sides, and roll up, tucking in the ends after the first roll.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan or wok over high heat. When the oil is very hot, about 375?F, fry the egg rolls until theyíre crisp and golden brown, for about 2 minutes. Drain thoroughly on paper towels.
  • While the egg rolls are frying, reheat the Hot Sesame Drizzle over low heat, stirring once or twice.
  • To serve, paint each of 8 dishes with a zigzag of mustard. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the Hot Sesame Drizzle over the mustard, and top with an egg roll.
