- 3 tbsp salt
- 2 tbsp sugar

Directions for marinating the spring roll filling
- Mix the ingredients for the filling together in a large mixing bowl.

- Once the filling is blended, cover the mixing bowl with the filling with plastic wrap and put into the fridge for overnight.
Directions for wrapping the spring rolls
- Remove the mixing bowl from the fridge to prepare for wrapping.
- Peel the wrappers and set them aside, keep them covered to avoid drying them out.
- Place a sheet of spring roll wrapper in a diamond shape facing towards you. Using a tablespoon, scoop a half tablespoon of the filling and place the filling near the bottom corner of the wrapper perpendicular to the corner and roll the spring roll upwards.
- To seal the spring roll, use a slurry mixture of water and rice flour, or cornstarch, or an egg wash to seal. Continue to repeat steps until all of the filling and wrappers are used up.
- Place the wrapped spring rolls into a large freezer bag and seal and place in the freezer or cook and serve immediately. The spring rolls can be saved in the freezer for 5-6 months.
Directions for deep frying the spring rolls
- In a medium saucepan, bring oil that is suitable for frying up to 350°F.
