Instructions

First, soak the rice paper wrappers in warm water for about 10 seconds or until they become pliable.

Mince the garlic and add it to the bowl along with salt and black pepper to taste.

Place a rice paper wrapper on a flat surface.

Then, fold the sides inward and continue rolling up the wrapper tightly.

Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

Once all the spring rolls are wrapped, heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat.

Serve the spring rolls immediately with rice vinegar and nuoc cham sauce for dipping.
