      Thank you for dropping by and commenting. I'm sorry that I couldn't find the button to reply individually.

      Cristale: yes, of course, you can make fish and many other types of summer roll, I made the char-grilled fish summer roll and oven bake summer roll, both of them received good feedbacks.

      Handicapped Chef: I'm glad that you like it, if you could get hold of sweet basil, please add to the recipe.
