Ingredients

  • 1 can (7 oz) tuna chunk in water - drained
  • 1 small onion - chopped finely
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoons cayenne pepper -or more
  • ¼ cup parsley or chives or celery - chopped
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • spring roll wrappers
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch - dissolved in ¼ cup of water for sealing the wraps
  • oil - for frying

Instructions

  • In a bowl, combine all the ingredients, except for the last four. Mix using a fork until well combined then add the grated cheese and mix again to distribute evenly.
  • On a clean surface, lay a spring roll wrapper diagonally. Scoop a spoonful of the filling and place it near one corner of the wrapper and gently push the filling into about 4-inch long, leaving some space at both ends. Fold in the left and right sides of the wrapper towards the center, then roll from the end nearest you over the filling then keep on rolling towards the other end as neatly and tightly as possible. Moisten the other side of the wrapper with cornstarch mixture to keep it from opening while frying. Repeat with remaining wrappers.
  • Deep fry on medium heat for 5 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Drain oil from the spring rolls by placing them on a plate with paper towels.
