What are Spring Rolls?

Thinly wrapped rolls filled with a variety of ingredients, spring rolls are a type of appetizer or snack. This can include veggies, meats, and sometimes pasta. The rolls may be served fresh (often called summer rolls). They may also be fried, which creates a crispy exterior. The filling typically includes ingredients such as shredded carrots, cabbage, bean sprouts, and proteins such as shrimp, pork, or chicken, all flavored with different herbs and sauces. They are often accompanied by dipping sauces such as soy sauce, peanut sauce, or hoisin sauce.

My spring roll recipe allows you to prepare a simple variation of his dish by buying rice pepper, vegetable, and salmon filling. All you need is a carrot, avocado, and cucumber. I also prepared the recipe of sauce with honey, sweet chili sauce, lime half, sesame oil, and olive oil. You can make this fantastic appetizer when you host your friends or treat your family. 

Spring Roll Ingredients

  • Lightly salted salmon: Adds a hearty, slightly salty taste and a tender, fatty texture to the rolls. Makes rolls more filling and nutritious by providing protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Cucumber: Adds a refreshing crunch as well as a mild flavor. It has a high water content and contributes to the hydration and crunchy texture of the rolls.
  • Carrot: Adds sweetness, crunch, and a vibrant color. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene. They improve the nutritional profile of the rolls.
  • Avocado: Adds a creamy, rich texture and mild taste. Packed with healthy fats, it adds a creamy texture without the need for additional oils or creams.
  • Rice Paper: Serves as wrapping to hold ingredients together. Thin and delicate, the rice paper adds a minimal amount of calories and won’t overpower the flavors of the filling.

Sauce Ingredients:

  • Honey: Adds sweetness to balance sauce flavors. It is a natural sweetener that enhances the overall flavor without being too overpowering.
  • Sweet Chili Sauce: Adds a spicy, hot taste with a hint of sweetness. Adds complexity and a hint of heat, making the rolls more flavorful.
  • Lime: Adds acidity and brightness. Enhances flavors and adds a refreshing citrus note that balances salmon and avocado richness.
  • Sesame Oil: Adds a nutty, roasted flavor to the dish. A small amount goes a long way in enhancing the overall sauce flavor.
  • Olive Oil: Adds softness and richness to the sauce. Healthy fat that blends other ingredients and adds subtle flavor.
  • Salt: Brings out the overall flavor of the sauce. Brings out the natural taste of other ingredients without overpowering them.

Chef Recipe Tips:

  • It is very important to use sesame oil from roasted grains in the sauce. 
  • You can change the filling according to your preferences, for example, add a mix of salad, and paprika. 
  • It is essential not to keep the rice paper in water for a long time, otherwise it will get wet.

The Origin of Spring Rolls

Spring rolls have a rich history and have their roots in East Asian cuisine. The origins of spring rolls can be traced back to China, where they were traditionally served during the Spring Festival to celebrate the coming of spring. Over time, the idea of the spring roll has spread throughout Asia, with each region developing its own unique version of the dish. In Vietnam, for example, fresh spring rolls called gỏi cuốn, often wrapped in rice paper and served cold, are popular. Conversely, Thai spring rolls and Filipino lumpia are typically fried for their crunch.

Spring rolls have become a popular dish around the world and are enjoyed for their versatility, ease of preparation, and the delightful combination of textures and flavors that they offer.

Spring Roll Storage Instructions:

If you’re not going to eat the egg rolls right away, wrap each roll individually in plastic wrap. If they are wrapped next to each other, they will stick together and tear when it is tried to take them apart.

They are at their best the day you made them. However, you can also store them for 2-3 days wrapping them individually and placing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

How to Make Spring Rolls in Advance?

Spring rolls are best when you make them fresh. You run the risk of the rolls sticking together and/or the crunchy ingredients getting soggy if you make them in advance. However, you can chop and cook most of the ingredients ahead of time. The sauce will be kept for 5 days if refrigerated, and the cooked shrimp will be kept for 3 days if refrigerated. Rice noodles can also be prepared and refrigerated for up to 3 days. Cucumbers and red peppers can be cut into slices and refrigerated for up to 2 days. Wait until just before making the rolls to slice the mango and gather the fresh herbs.
