    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    These treats are wonderful and are NOT FRIED! Delicious shrimp and veggies do the tuck and roll in a rice paper sheet and are snug and waiting for you to enjoy! Try dipping them in some Spring Roll Dipping Sauce / Nuoc Mam or any Asian style dipping sauce you prefer. The mint is key to the flavor here and really comes through well. As the name implies they are great in Spring- or any season- and making them will not heat your kitchen up while you cook. You can see a video of how to roll here: http://www.mysuncoast.com/Global/story.asp?s=7800990

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Shrimp marinade

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Marinate shrimp in a small bowl for 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, cook the noodles in boiling water for 4 minutes. Drain immediately and rinse with cold water. Drain thoroughly removing as much water as possible. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Remove shrimp and discard marinade. In a lightly oiled wok or large skillet cook shrimp on high heat about 2 minutes or until done. (They grill well if you prefer that method).
    4. 4
      Allow shrimp to cool enough so that you can handle them. Slice each shrimp in half lengthwise so that you have two identical halves of shrimp. (like two letter C's).
    5. 5
      Fill a dish larger than the rice paper sheets with cool/room temperature water. Quickly dip one sheet in the water. You must be fast so the sheet does not get too wet.
    6. 6
      Allow all water to drip off and place on clean, dry work surface. Blot the top of the rice paper with a paper towel. ONLY work one roll at a time.
    7. 7
      Time to ROLL! The wrapper will still be a little stiff at the beginning but will soften perfectly for rolling by the time you finish piling on the ingredients.
    8. 8
      Lay 4 halves of the shrimp ( 2 shrimp - 4 C's) in a line near the bottom 1/3 of the round. Top with some cabbage or lettuce, then some noodles, carrots, bell pepper and cilantro. Finish by placing two mint leaves on top. Try to keep the ingredients compact and piled on top of the shrimp.
    9. 9
      Starting with the side closest to you, begin to roll up tightly. If you stop halfway and gently pull back on the roll to tighten it will adjust and settle the ingredients and make it easier and tighter to finish rolling. At the end the wrapper will adhere to itself. Just wet by running a damp finger over the top if you feel it is not sealed well.
    10. 10
      You should have paper left over after everything is neatly tucked and rolled. Just simply cut them off using a sharp knife.
    11. 11
      Place the roll on a platter and cover with damp paper towel or plastic wrap, then a kitchen towel to prevent drying.
    12. 12
      Clean work surface to make sure it is dry and free of any leftovers from the previous roll. Repeat with a new rice paper sheet. Work ONE at a time as the sheets are sticky! They will stick to each other instantly so only wet one at a time.
    13. 13
      Note: You will get better with practice. The second will look better than the first and so on. Rice paper varies in thickness so if you find the brand you are using is a little stiff to work with blot more or less water off the next until you find what works for you. You can also let it sit for a few seconds before adding ingredients or use slightly warmer, never hot, water for dipping. Just remember to let the water drip off and wipe your work surface dry each time - a dry surface allows the rice paper to stick and creates a little tension for easier wrapping.

      I just love summer rolls. These are fun to make. I used savory cabbage added bean sprouts, tossed some hoisin sauce in the vermicelli, added basil, romaine and chives. Cilantro I wish I had it would have been good in this as well. I had cooked shrimp so I tossed the marinade on it and let it sit for a bit and then stuffed away. I didn`t measure a thing just made to taste. This is a fun party treat for everyone to make their own to taste. Thanks!!!

      I was looking for a recipe similar to the spring rolls appetizer at the Cheesecake Factory. This was exactly what I was looking for! I made these with my mom and they were amazing! It took awhile but was so much fun to make! I omitted the bell pepper because we didn't have any but added in chopped shitake mushrooms and chopped asparagus instead. Also added in some chopped green onions because they're my favorite. Thanks for an amazing recipe!
