How To Make Crispy California Roll Tacos

This California roll recipe is loaded with brown rice, crab meat, and nori in a crispy fried wonton shell, drizzled with soy sauce and wasabi mix.

Preparation: 45 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 1 hour



  • 24wonton wrappers
  • canola oil,for frying
  • ½cucumber,peeled and very finely diced
  • 3sheetsnori,cut into 27 squares
  • 2cupsbrown rice
  • 2tbsprice vinegar
  • 16ozKrab meat,or actual crab meat
  • ¼cupmayonnaise
  • sesame seeds,for garnish
  • soy sauce,for drizzling on top of tacos
  • wasabi,for topping
  • spicy mayo


  1. Take a taco shell and push a crumpled 8-inch piece of non-heavy-duty foil into the shell to get the shape of the interior. Pull the foil out and push down sharp points to smoothen the surface.

  2. Use circular wonton skins, or just trim some square ones. Drape the wonton on the bottom of the taco-shaped foil to shape it. Hold it in place with a pair of tongs.

  3. Heat the oil to about 350 degrees F. Lower the tongs into the oil without letting go, keeping a gentle grip to keep the wonton from tearing.

  4. In about ten seconds, lift it out, and with a fork pull the wonton off the foil and back into the oil. Remove with the tongs gently. Set the shells aside.

  5. Cut nori sheets into nine equal pieces and put one square into each shell.

  6. Mix brown rice with rice vinegar. Microwave for about 15 seconds.

  7. Put about a little over a tablespoon of brown rice inside the shells, then top with a heaping tablespoon of the California roll mixture, some finely diced cucumber, and some sesame seeds.

  8. Serve with spicy mayo and a bowl of premixed wasabi and soy sauce. Use a spoon to drizzle soy sauce on the tacos.
