Try serving these with Cilantro Peanut Salad. Look for sustainable yellowfin tuna caught off the U.S. Pacific coast, or sub 1/2 pound cooked shrimp. Look for rice paper wrappers on the Asian foods aisle of the grocery store; if you can't find them, turn the rolls into lettuce wraps. As for the leftover pineapple preserves, use it as a glaze for pork, add to a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, or dollop over coconut ice cream. 

 

Serves 2 (serving size: 2 rolls and about 2 tbsp. sauce)
