  • Soak a wrapper in warm water 30 seconds; immediately lay it flat on a work surface. Lay 6 shrimp halves, cut sides up, on bottom third, leaving a 1/2-inch border; top with 2 tablespoons each noodles, carrot, mache, mint, and cilantro.

  • Fold bottom of wrapper over fillings; roll over once, tuck in sides, and roll. Cut in half; cover with a damp paper towel. Repeat to make remaining rolls. Serve with sweet and sour dipping sauce.
