Step 1: Soak Spring Roll Wrapper

Soak one spring roll wrapper at a time in a shallow dish of very hot water until softened, about 30 seconds. Lift out, let excess water drip off and lay on a clean, dry cutting board.

Step 2: Center Ingredients on Wrapper

Center ingredients in the bottom third of the wrapper, leaving a 1-inch border on either end.

Step 3: Fold Wrapper

Fold the wrapper over the filling.

Step 4: Start Rolling

Start rolling into a tight cylinder.

Step 5: Fold in Sides

Stop rolling about halfway to fold in both sides.

Step 6: Continue Rolling

Continue rolling until the spring roll is a tight cylinder.

Step 7: Assemble Remaining Spring Rolls

Assemble the remaining spring rolls the same way. Keep the finished rolls covered with a damp cloth to prevent them from drying out. Cut each finished roll in half just before serving, if desired.
