Pineapple Shrimp Spring Rolls

I make spring rolls all the time and I absolutely adore this combination! There’s something about juicy pineapple with succulent shrimp that just makes you feel like you’re on vacation. I must insist you eat these with peanut sauce (recipe below). I’ll be shocked if I ever publish another spring roll same here on The Rose Table…

Mango Spring Rolls
