Fill a bowl with warm water. Dip 1 rice paper sheet into the water for 5-10 seconds or until just soft. Place on a clean work surface. Lightly pat with paper towel to remove moisture. Place 1/8 of the spinach in the centre of the sheet. Top with 1/8 each of salmon, carrot mixture, coriander and mint. Fold up the sides and roll to enclose the filling. Repeat to make 8 rolls. Combine remaining hoisin and soy sauces and the peanuts in a bowl to make dipping sauce.
