Ingredients
  

  • 1 package spring roll wrappers
  • Oil for frying
  • Lettuce
  • Cilantro

Filling

  • 2 oz bean thread noodles
  • 1/4 cup dried wood ear mushrooms
  • 3/4 lb ground pork
  • 1/4 lb shrimp minced
  • 1/2 cup carrot shredded
  • 1/4 cup onion minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce

Flour Paste

  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp water

Nuoc Cham Dipping Sauce

  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper or chilies
  • 4 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions
 

  • Soak the bean thread noodles and wood ear mushrooms in bowls of warm water for 20 minutes. Once hydrated, finely chop the noodles and mushrooms. In a bowl, mix all filling ingredients until well combined.
  • Mix flour and water together to create a flour paste. Wrap the egg rolls tightly with 2-3 tb filling and seal with flour paste.
  • Working in batches, fry the spring rolls for 8-10 minutes at 325°F until cooked through and golden brown. Combine ingredients for nuoc cham sauce. Serve spring rolls with lettuce, cilantro and nuoc cham. Happy nomming!

Notes

  • Deep fry or shallow fry. I prefer shallow frying so there is less leftover oil. To shallow fry, fill a pan with half an inch of oil. Flip the spring rolls halfway through. 
  • Use a food processor to chop the noodles, mushrooms, shrimp and carrots quicker. 
  • Fully cooked spring rolls can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • These spring rolls reheat really well and taste just as good as a fresh batch. Thaw in the refrigerator, refry or reheat in the oven or air fryer at 325°F for 10 minutes or until heated through. 
  • Nutrition estimate does not include oil absorbed during frying.
