Making Dipping Sauce for Eggrolls
Step 1 – Asian fish sauce is the base ingredient for making my eggroll dipping sauce. In a small bowl add 1-2 Tablespoons of Asian Fish Sauce.
Step 2 – Adding some water to the Fish Sauce to cut the saltiness and increase the liquid. 2 Tablespoons is enough water.
Step 3 – Add some sugar to the eggroll dipping sauce to balance the saltiness with some sweetness. I find 2 teaspoons is a good amount.
Hint:Preheating the air fryer before cooking these eggrolls is not necessary.

Step 4 – Place frozen egg rolls in basket of air fryer in single layer. Do NOT spray the eggrolls with oil. If the air fryer basket is not non stick then spray it with some oil or cooking spray.
Step 5 – Cook the Frozen Egg Rolls at 400 Degrees Fahrenheit for a total cooking time of 10 minutes.
Step 6 – Flip Egg Rolls halfway though cooking time for maximum crispiness. I flip them by rolling the egg rolls. Be careful they are hot.
Air Fryer Frozen Egg Rolls Time and Temp
How long to cook frozen eggrolls in air fryer? I have cooked egg rolls in both a basket style air fryer and an oven style air fryer. How
Preheat air fryer to 400 Degrees Fahrenheit. Place egg rolls in the air fryer basket. Cook egg rolls 10-12 minutes. If cooking in oven style air fryer cooking time is 12-15 minutes.
When the egg rolls are done cooking I like to place them on a paper towel. The paper towel absorb any residual grease that may be present.
If you do not have the fish sauce to make the dipping sauce you can make a dipping sauce that is even more simple. Mix together Soy Sauce and some Sesame Oil. If you have Rice Vinegar add a teaspoon. Toss in some chopped green onions for presentation.
These instructions can also be used to cook frozen spring rolls. Keep in mind that spring rolls are smaller and will cook more quickly. Decrease cooking time accordingly.
These egg rolls can easily be made homemade with some frozen egg rolls wrappers and some coleslaw mix with and other vegetables and protein you enjoy.
