Baked Lime Pork Spring Rolls

Baked Lime Pork Spring Rolls

By: Georgia Harding

These are like a traditional Vietnamese spring roll — wrapped in a lettuce cup with a zesty sauce. I think it’s the best way to enjoy spring rolls.



Prep time

Cook time




  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 500g pork mince
  • 1 bunch spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely grated
  • 2 tbsp ginger, finely grated
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 6 wombok leaves, finely shredded
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • Juice 1 lime
  • ½ bunch coriander, leaves picked & finely diced
  • Rice paper
  • 1 head cos lettuce

    Dipping Sauce
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp rice-malt syrup
  • Chilli, to taste
  • Spring onions


  • Heat the olive oil in a wok or frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the pork mince, spring onion, garlic and ginger and stir-fry until the pork mince is cooked through and the pan is dry.
  • Add the carrot, wombok, fish sauce, coconut sugar and lime juice and cook over high heat to caramelise the pork. Stir through the coriander leaves.
  • Submerge a piece of rice paper in water so it is wet on both sides and lay on a wet chopping board to assemble the spring rolls.
  • Add 2 tbsp of the pork mixture across the middle of the rice paper, taking care not to over-fill. Fold the top edge down, followed by the sides and then roll tightly.
  • Brush with olive oil and cook in an air fryer or bake on an oiled rack in a preheated oven at 200ºC. Cook for 10–15 mins, turning then cooking for another 10–15 mins or until golden brown.
  • Meanwhile, combine the dipping sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Arrange the lettuce leaves on a plate.
  • Once cooked, arrange the spring rolls in a lettuce cup and serve with dipping sauce.
