How do you make shrimp rolls, so it’s super tasty and low-carb? Check out my Swiss chard shrimp roll recipe! It’s healthy and super tasty! Let’s get started!


Serving: 12 pieces
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

For the filling:
1 pound shrimp, or replace it with other protein
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/10 teaspoon salt
1/10 teaspoon white pepper
1 tablespoon sesame oil

For the rolls:
1 bunch Swiss chard
1/2 large carrot, julienned
2 tablespoons oil
2 medium finger hot peppers
3 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons scallions
2 tablespoons soy sauce


To prepare the filling:
  • In a food processor, add the deveined shrimp, and blend until it becomes a paste (or mince it with a knife). Then add the ginger, salt, white pepper, and sesame oil. Blend them together.
  • Place a pastry bag (or a Ziploc bag) in a glass, and add the filling inside. Seal the opening and cut open the tip.
To prepare the Swiss chard:
  • Slice off the stems of Swiss chard, and cut the stems into thin slices.
  • In a pot of water over high heat, bring it to a boil, and blanch the leaves until softened for about 10 seconds. Gently remove them and place them in cold water to stop cooking. Drain.
To assemble:
  • Lay a Swiss chard leaf flat. Squeeze the filling at the bottom corner. Add a few pieces of carrots and Swiss chard stems next to the filling.
  • Roll it up, fold in the two sides, and roll it up all the way. Do the same with the rest, and place them on a plate.
To steam:
  • In a steamer over high heat, bring water to a boil, and transfer the plate of Swiss chard shrimp rolls inside. Cover the lid and steam until completely cooked through for about 6 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the plate.
To serve:
  • Sprinkle the finger hot peppers, garlic, and scallions on the Swiss chard shrimp rolls.
  • In a small pan over high heat, pour the oil in it. Heat it up until smoking hot. (This helps to add more aromas to the dish. You could also opt it out.)
  • Pour the hot oil over the finger hot peppers, garlic, and scallions.
  • Lastly, add the soy sauce in it, and serve!
Did you know:
  • Swiss Chard is rich in vitamins K, A, C, magnesium, and antioxidants. But, it’s low in calories. You might think it originated in Switzerland, but it is actually native to the Mediterranean. Happy cooking and enjoy!
