Combine the shrimp, lemongrass, garlic, fish sauce, sugar, chili flakes and oil in a bowl. Set aside to marinate for 20 minutes.

Prepare the grill for direct heat. Grill the shrimp until just done, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the shrimps and let cool slightly, and cut each shrimp in half, lengthwise.

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 with a damp cloth. Arrange 3 pieces of shrimp halved, cut-side up. Place some coleslaw (below the shrimps) bean sprouts, mint leaves, coriander leaves, basil leaves, peanuts, and lettuce.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
