2. Place noodles, lettuce, carrot, cucumber, shrimps, cilantro, fish and hot chili sauces in a mixing bowl. Mix well and refrigerate for about 10 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, soak spring rolls skin in cold water for about 1 minutes or until they are soft. 4. On a flat surface, lay one spring roll skin at a time on paper towel and pat dry. Place ½ cup filling at the center close to the near corner, add two apple strips, then lift the corner over the filling and tuck it under the filling and begin to roll in, toward the center. Bring the two side corners up over the enclosed filling. Tuck the side corners under and continue rolling to the end. Place it on a serving plate. Repeat the process with the rest.
