Shrimp Summer Rolls
A refreshing salad rolled up in rice paper is one of Vietnam's culinary treasures.
Summer rolls pique all five senses: sight, scent, taste, sound (crunch), and touch: Put out a platter of shrimp, vegetables, and herbs, and let guests make their own.
1. START STACKING
Place 3 pieces of shrimp, cut side up, on prepped spring-roll skin. Place fresh herbs, vegetables, and vermicelli on top of shrimp.
2. GET ROLLING
Using both hands, lift side of skin closest to you and fold it tightly over filling, leaving a crescent moon of skin on far side (think burrito).
3. TUCK TIGHTLY
Fold in both ends of summer roll. Once thereâ€™s skin-to-skin contact, a tight seal will form.
4. WRAP IT UP
Grab body firmly and tightly roll it away from you to seal summer roll. Dip, eat, enjoy. Repeat.
