Fresh Spring Rolls (from Vietnam)

Compliments of Hoa Tuc - 12 rolls


Ingredients:

About 20 shrimp
Pork
Rice noodles
12 rice paper - or a few more in case they break
12 green lettuce leaves sliced Julienne
Fresh basil
Fresh mint
Bean sprouts
Chives

Directions:

Prepare the shrimp - in a sauce pan bring water with a pinch of salt to a boil over medium heat.  Add the shrimp and simmer for 1 or 2 minutes until pink.  Remove the shrimp.  Peel and cut in 2 parts and then set aside.

Prepare the pork - heat oil in a wok over medium heat.  Sear pork for 1 to 2 minutes until lightly browned on all sides.  When pork cools, thinly slice it into bite size pieces.

Wrapping the rolls - To make the fresh rolls, quickly dip a rice paper wrapper in a bowl of water until it is soft (or wet the paper just a bit by dipping your fingers in water and running it across the top).  Remove the rice paper and place on a dry surface, smoothing it out with your fingers.  Like a burrito, on one side of the rice paper place the lettuce and then the rice noodles and top with some basil, mint, chili, and bean sprouts.  Add a line of pork then a line of 3 pieces of shrimp.  Fold the 2 sides parallel and roll up tightly, pressing to seal.


Serve the fresh spring rolls with a bowl of peanut sauce on the side and enjoy!

  1. So this is how it's done! I always prefer this fresh spring rolls than the cooked ones. It is such a joy eating this in our local Vietnamese restaurant and I always wonder how to prepare this spring rolls myself. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  2. If you are in emergency then you can apply for urgent Vietnam visa service but for that you have to pay an extra bucks. You could have the visa sanction within two hours or within two hours but you have to pay a large amount of extra bucks apart from the visa charges.click here
