  • 1/3 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 mini sweet red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 1/3 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 small scallions, cut into 8 1-in long strips

Starting from the top, fold rice paper wrap towards you, covering the fish and vegetables. Fold the bottom half up away from you, followed by the sides into the center to create each bite.
