Ingredients:

-2c cooked vermicelli noodles

-1 lb cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp, chopped

-3 large romaine hearts, shredded

-1 jalapeño, minced

-1/2 of a medium red onion, slivered (thinly sliced.)

-2 carrots, peeled and shredded (use a grater or processor)

-1/2 c green onion, finely sliced

-1/4c fresh chopped cilantro

-1/4c fresh chopped mint

-fresh lime juice + rice paper wrappers

Dipping Sauce:

-1/4c rice wine vinegar        -3/4c soy or fish sauce

-1/4c honey                          -1 large jalapeño minced

-2 garlic cloves, minced       -1 tbsp green onion, thinly sliced

directions:

Chop up your vermicelli noodles. In a large bowl add in all of your ingredients: green onion, mint, cilantro, carrots, red onion, jalapeño, shredded lettuce, shrimp, and noodles, Add in the juice on 1 lime, and 1-2 tbsp of the dipping sauce. Toss all ingredients together.

To make the dipping sauce, simply just mix the vinegar, honey, garlic, soy sauce, jalapeño and green onions in a bowl. Whisk, taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

To assemble your rolls, immerse your rice paper in a bowl of warm-hot water for 20-30 seconds. Keep the surface you are working on a little bit wet so the paper does not stick. Spoon the filling mixture into the middle of the rice paper. Fold in both sides over the mixture, then roll into a spring roll. Keep it nice and tight! This was my first time rolling these and i didn’t do too terrible! Continue rolling your rolls until you have enough for dinner, or an appie. Serve with the dipping sauce on the side!
