Basil leaves


Jumbo Shrimp ( butterflied ,cooked and deveined)

Mung Bean Sprouts

Rice Wrappers

Romaine Lettuce

Thin rice noodles (cooked and drained)

You can also make these with seasoned ground chicken or pork

To make these vegetarian use chopped  uncooked mushrooms in place of the shrimp.


Directions:  Soften rice wrapper round by soaking in hot water until it becomes  transparent and pliable. I use a large shallow baking dish filled with  hot water to soak the rice wrappers.  I usually soak one or two at a  time. Soaking the wrappers too long will make them more fragile.  Once  you do a couple of these you will get a feel for how long to leave these  in the hot water. Once softened, lift the wrapper out of the water  carefully, let excess water drip off the rice wrapper and set this on a  flat surface.  Pat dry with a paper towel.

Place  one romaine lettuce leaf on the wrapper (you may have to cut the  lettuce leaf in half or even thirds depending on the size, you want the  leaf to be smaller than the width of your rice wrapper circle.  Add your  rice noodles next, then your shrimp, basil leaves, sprouts and cilantro  in the middle of the lettuce leaf. Roll this ¼ of the way up, then fold  up one side and then fold over the other side and continue rolling the  rest of the way.

When  you serve these, you may cut them in half and serve with a gluten free  dipping sauce of your choice. These are really great with a sweet chili  sauce which you can usually find in the ethnic food section at your  local grocery store.
