“ Brand: Asda / Type: Meat „
These are one of my fave snacks from Asda, they're pretty new in the Extra Special range but most of the duck spring rolls Asda sell are brill. These come in packs of 8 with a little pot of hoisin sauce, they cost about £2.50 and you can have them cold straight out of the fridge or warm them up.
They're nicest warm and take about 15 mins in the oven, quite a bit of fat comes out of them as they're cooking but the pastry isn't mad greasy as long as you leave them to stand for a couple of minutes after you take them out.
There's quite a bit of duck in each spring roll, the rolls are a decent size as well and bigger than the mini ones you can get off the deli in Tesco. They're deffo worth the money because they're wicked quality and taste sooooo nice!
The duck is mixed with beansprouts, water chestnuts and carrots so they're lovely and crunchy even after you've warmed them up. The amounts are just right as well because you get duck in every mouth full and that's mixed with lovely fresh vegetables that give the spring roll a wicked crunch.
The hoisin dip is delish, you don't warm it up and it's nice dipping the hot spring rolls into the cold sauce. It's got a fruity and sweet flavour and is nice and thick, it's not EXACTLY like the one from the Chinese but isn't bad for sauce that comes from the supermarket! lol
I was surprised by how nice the pastry is, it goes a bit crispy in the oven but isn't crunchy or anything. It's got a nice taste and isn't greasy, I like the oriental flavour of the pastry and even though it's bland the flavour of it is perfect to go with the duck and vegetables.
Most of them I've done have kept their shape good in the oven. I've only had 2 split out of about 6 packs that I've cooked so far so that's not bad because some I had from Morrisons broke apart completely and I had to kind of scoop them up off the baking tray with a fork! lol
