How To Make Spring Rolls

Directions: 5

1. In a medium sauce pan, bring water to boil. Boil rice vermicelli 3 to 5 minutes or until soften, and drain.
2. Fill a large bowl with warm water. Dip one wrapper into the hot water for 1 second to soften. Lay wrapper flat, place 2 shrimp halves, along with the shrimp, add boiled pork, 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.
3. In a small bowl, combine the fish sauce, water, lime juice, garlic, sugar and chili sauce, mix well.
4. In another small bowl, mix the hoisin sauce and peanuts (mix 1 part crunchy peanut butter to 2 parts hoisin sauce, whisk over medium heat until blended, adding a few splashes of water to make the sauce less thick)
5. Serve rolled spring rolls with the fish sauce and hoisin sauce mixtures.

I was impressed when I saw such a great version of one of my favorite dishes. For those of you who are willing to add a bit more effort to make the rolls even that much more “authentic” here are some suggestions: along with the shrimp, add some boiled pork that’s thinly sliced. As well as some sprouts, shredded carrot and a long thinly sliced piece of cucumber. And for an easy and excellent peanut dipping sauce. This sauce truly MAKES the dish! Hope this was helpful!
