Healthy Dinner: Asian Spring Rolls

Start to finish: 30 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

  • 8 8-inch round spring-roll wrappers (available in grocery stores)
  • 2 cups shredded Bibb lettuce
  • 8 ounces fresh or frozen cooked, peeled, and deveined shrimp, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 5 tablespoons bottled peanut sauce
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar

Fill a shallow dish with warm water. Dip each spring-roll wrapper in water; place between damp paper towels for 10 minutes. In a large bowl, combine lettuce, shrimp, carrot, scallion, cilantro, 2 tablespoons peanut sauce, and 1 tablespoon rice vinegar. Toss.

In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 3 tablespoons peanut sauce and 1 tablespoon rice vinegar; set aside. Place 1/2 cup of the shrimp mixture half an inch from the bottom edge of a wrapper. Fold bottom edge of the wrapper over the filling. Fold sides over and roll up. Repeat with remaining filling and wrappers. Cut each in half; serve with dipping sauce.

I believe when they say spring-roll wrappers they mean rice paper

@JM325: I think you're talking about egg rolls. Those are fried and use a different wrapper. These spring rolls are different. Yes they're eaten raw, but the wrappers should be warmed up by placing them in a dish of warm water (as said in the first paragraph).

Where are the cooking instructions? Most spring rolls are fried. Are these eaten with raw wrappers?
