Serves: 4
Ingredients

  • 1 medium Carrot, grated
  • 2 Tbsp Coriander, chopped finely
  • 8 Spring roll wrappers

  • 3 Tbsp Chilli garlic sauce
  • 3 Tbsp Chilli sauce
Instructions
  1. Combine the tuna, the oyster sauce, the chili garlic sauce, the bean sprouts, the carrot and the coriander in a bowl using a fork.

  2. Next, lay out spring roll wrappers in a plate and use the fork to place some tuna mixture into a corner of the spring roll.

  3. Roll up and fold in the ends. Wet the edges with a little bit of water to seal the spring roll completely.

  4. Keep aside on a grease proof paper to avoid the raw rolls from sticking.

  6. Remove the spring rolls from the oil and place them onto kitchen paper to drain extra oil.

  7. Arrange the spring rolls on a bed of shredded lettuce or cabbage and place a mini bowl of chili sauce for dipping. Serve immediately.
