Pork and shrimp spring rolls

This is a Southeast Asian staple.  Most of us are used to the flour wrapper deep fried ans served with duck sauce.  This is a lighter version used in Vietnam and Thai cuisine.  The peanut sauce rocks and I will use it on a lot of other things.  A word about the wrappers;  it will take you a few tries to use those at least it did for me.   I hope you like them.
