  • 16 rice paper wraps
  • 1 pound cooked shrimp or lobster meat, chopped
  • 1/4 red cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1/2 english cucumber sliced into matchsticks
  • 2 carrots shaved
  • 1/2 cup cilantro roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup Thai basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup roasted and salted peanuts crushed
  • 1 lime sliced into wedges

For the spicy peanut sauce

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha use more or less depending on your spice tolerance
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


For the fresh summer rolls

  • Put all ingredients into small bowls on the table or a top a large cutting board. Prepare a large pot of warm water and set on table.
  • Dip a rice paper wrap in the water (make sure all parts of the wrap have gotten wet) and lay on your plate - the wrap should soften and be pliable. If the water is too hot, the wrappers will be too sticky. Then, build your own spring roll and roll it like a mini burrito. Serve with lime segments and spicy peanut sauce (below).

For the spicy peanut sauce

  • Combine all ingredients in a small microwave safe bowl. Heat in 10 second increments (2-3 times) stirring after each increment until smooth and combined.


These fresh summer rolls can be made a few hours ahead of time and kept in the fridge, but should not be kept in the fridge more than a few hours or the rice paper wraps will begin to harden and dry out.
