Shrimp Spring Rolls With Garden Fresh Bell Peppers

by The Cooking Studio
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 10

  • 1 bell pepper, cut into matchstick size
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into matchstick size
  • ¼ jicama, peeled and cut into matchstick size
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, finely shredded
  • 1 bunch mint, diced
  • ½ bunch cilantro, diced
  • 1.5 lb. cooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, sliced in half
  • 10 dried rice paper wrappings

To construct the rolls, first put very hot water in a large saucepan or flat-bottomed bowl a little bigger than your rice paper. Soak one sheet of rice paper wrapping in the hot water for 7 seconds, then take it out and lay it on a flat surface/sheet pan. The wrapping will still be a bit stiff, but it will continue to get soft as you add the filling. Layer 1 or 2 shrimp halves and equal parts (about 1 T. each) of bell pepper, carrot, jicama, romaine, mint, and cilantro in one corner of the soaked wrapping. Roll like a burrito into a tight spring roll, and place on a bed of shredded lettuce. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately with the dipping sauce.
