Vietnamese Spring Rolls

These are very YUMMY! all of my kids ate more than one and said it was a keeper...even Miss Bria who is prejudiced against most food!!! I LOVE to try new recipes weekly(whether or not that happens is another story)! I find all these new recipes in magazines and at all recipes and then I make them, take a pic and then if my little family loves it we keep the recipe and I paste the pic to the recipe and throw in a binder! Easy!!! Otherwise the pic is trashed(gotta love digital) and the recipe is tossed! So, I challenge you to try a new recipe...such as this!

Vietnamese Spring Rolls

2 oz. rice vermicelli
8 rice wrappers (8.5 in. diameter)
8 Large cooked shrimp-peeled, deveined and cut in half
1 1/3 Tbsp. chopped fresh Thai basil
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint leaves
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
2 leaves lettuce, chopped

Bring Medium saucepan of water to boil. Boil rice vermicelli 3 to 5 minutes, or until al dente, and drain.

Fill a large bowl with warm water. Dip one wrapper into the hot water for 1 second to soften. Lay wrapper flat. In a row across the center, place 2 shrimp halves (we actually used 4 shrimp halves), a handful of vermicelli, basil, mint, cilantro and lettuce, leaving about 2 inches uncovered on each side. Fold uncovered sides inward, then tightly roll the wrapper, beginning at the end with the lettuce. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Dipping sauces:--I don't use this one because I am preggers and the smell gets to me, but my husband LOVED it so go ahead and try it if you are brave! LOL

4 tsp. fish sauce
1/4 c. water
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. white sugar
1/2 tsp. garlic chili sauce

In a small bowl mix the fish sauce, water, lime juice, garlic, sugar and chili sauce. Serve with Spring Rolls!

Other sauce: I love this one!!!

3 Tbsp. Hoison sauce
1 tsp. finely chopped peanuts

In small bowl mix hoison sauce and peanuts.

Serve with Spring Rolls! EAT UP and ENJOY!!!

We bought the rice vermicelli at Walmart and the rice wrappers at an Oriental Grocery Store (we used the Thai Store on 72)!

Looks yummy!! We love to eat Korean over here. Most friends that we have over can't handle the seaweed... maybe we should have you guys over and have some!

It sounds like a very yummy yet ambitious recipe--a far cry from the old standbys like tacos and mac and cheese that we eat on a weekly basis. You're a good reminder that it's worth it to branch out!

You dont wanna know what part of the anatomy those so look like to me.

YUM! We try not to eat the same recipe more than once a month. We don't eat processed foods so we do alot of cooking. We love COOKING! Those look delicious. We also save a picture and blog about it. I will definitely try those.

That looks awesome, except I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to shrimp, although Aaron really likes it. I'm sure they're good without it too though. We'll definitely try these.
