Fresh Spring Rolls (Summer Rolls)

We love Vietnamese-style fresh spring rolls, or also known as Summer Rolls. Basically, you can fill the rolls with any ingredients of your choice. For this recipe, I used boiled prawns, bean sprouts, red leaf lettuce, rice vermicelli, mint leaf, basil leaf, roasted peanut and some crispy fried shallots. Once you roll it up, serve it with homemade Peanut Hoisin Sauce, simply delicious.

Make the Spring Rolls: Filled a shallow pan with water. Briefly dip each sheet of rice paper into the water. Remove and place on a board and dry any excess water with a damp cloth. Place the lettuce leaf in a straight line, along the bottom of the sheet. Top with herbs, rice vermicelli, crispy fried shallots and chopped peanut. Arrange 3 pieces of shrimp halved, cut-side up, above the lettuce. Roll-up the rice paper, fold the sides, and roll-up tightly, and pressing to seal.
