Spring rolls can be fresh or fried. Fresh spring rolls are filled with ingredients that can be eaten raw, such as shredded carrots, bean sprouts and fresh herbs, or ingredients that have been cooked before — shrimp, smoked salmon, cooked tofu.

To simplify the process, lay out all the ingredients you need to make the rolls near your work surface before you begin.
