Ingredients
  • 1 pound cooked shrimp halved
  • 1 avocado peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch green onions diced
  • 1/2 cucumber julienned
  • 1 large carrot peeled and julienned
  • 1/2 cup red cabbage sliced into strips
  • 24 basil leaves stems removed
  • 1/4 cup cilantro stems removed
  • 1/2 cup butter lettuce
  • rice paper for rolling
  • 1 batch Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce recipe link provided below
Instructions
  1. Prepare all ingredients as directed and set out on a board or plate for assembly. (If shrimp are not cooked, cut in half then toss with 1-2 tbsp olive oil and season as desired - cook in a hot skillet for 1-2 minutes on each side or until no longer translucent).

  2. Fill a shallow bowl with warm water (I used a shallow pasta bowl), set aside.

  3. Soak one piece of rice paper in warm water for approximately 10 seconds. Shake off excess water then lay wrapper flat on plate or BOARD.

  4. In a row across the center, place a small handful of vermicelli then top with a few pieces of shrimp / vegetable / herb desired. Leave about 2 inches uncovered on each side. Fold uncovered sides inward, then tightly roll the wrapper (like a baby burrito!). Set onto a plate or board for serving.

  5. Repeat with remaining ingredients. (To keep assembled rolls fresh, cover with a damp cloth). Serve immediately with Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce.

Recipe Notes

Storage: Best when enjoyed right away! If you must, refrigerate ingredients separately then assemble into rice paper right before enjoying. If assembled rolls are leftover, cover with damp cloth before placing in refrigerator.
