Spam and Pineapple Spring Rolls with Homemade Sweet and Sour Sauce

Photographs: Marvin Gapultos

If sliced just right, Spam makes for an excellent spring roll filling—especially so when combined with slivers of fresh pineapple, toasted sesame seeds, and green onions.

When fried to a crisp in hot oil, these Hawaii-ified spring rolls are great as is, but a dip in homemade sweet and sour sauce provides another contrast to the crunchy shell and toasted sesame seeds, salty Spam and sweet pineapple.

Note: When working with spring roll wrappers, keep stacked thawed wrappers under plastic wrap or a damp towel to prevent drying out.
