Instructions

Mise en Place

  • Place Rice Noodles in a Bowl of Hot Water for a few minutes until cooked through, yet still al dente (The noodles will still have a bit of a bite to them so that they’re not overly soft). Strain Noodles.
  • Gather whole leaves of Thai Basil, Cilantro and Mint. Mince only the Mint leaves.
  • Remove Lettuce leave and cuts them to approximately 2 inches by 5 inches.
  • Peel Jicama and Carrot with a Vegetable Peeler. Using a Mandoline or a Sharp Knife, julienne Jicama and Carrots (cut into matchstick size) no longer than 5 inches long.
  • Slice Cooked Shrimp in half from head to tail.

Let’s Roll

  • Place dry Spring Roll Wrapper in Pie Plate filled with Warm Water for about 2-3 seconds.
  • Place wet Spring Roll Wrapper on non-porous surface like a synthetic cutting board. If you are using a wood cutting board, it helps to place a Tea Towel on top of it to prevent the Wrapper from sticking.
  • Place 3 shrimp halves (pink side down) in a line in the center of the Wrapper about 2 inches from the bottom, leaving a little bit of space between the shrimp.
  • Place 3 Basil Leaves next to each of the Shrimp.
  • Place Lettuce on top. Followed by Jicama and Carrots.
  • Sprinkle some Mint on top.
  • Then, please the Noodles on top next, followed by 3 leaves of Cilantro.
  • Fold both the left and right side of the Wrapper over the ingredients.
  • Grabbing the Wrapper end closest to you, fold it over the ingredients and roll up the Spring Roll.
