Yellowfin and Avocado Spring Rolls

Yellowfin and Avocado Spring Rolls

With creamy avocado, molten brie and tender tuna wrapped in nori and a shell so crisp, it shatters, these aren't your run-of-the-mill spring rolls. Served with a sweet and sour wasabi balsamic sauce, these elegant one bite canapés taste like a crisp bite of sushi. The nori not only helps keep the wrapper crisp, it also adds a wonderfully sweet briny flavor to the roll. For the sauce, be sure to use a real balsamic vinegar (there are lots of fakes) aged for at least 25 years as this is what gives the sauce it's sweetness and viscosity.
