These fresh Shrimp Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce by The Mindful Hapa are the perfect celebration of summer flavor and fresh produce. They’re light and crisp (because of fresh crunchy veggies, not a fried wrapper), gluten-free, dairy-free, and a fun variation of the traditional Vietnamese Spring Roll recipe!
Prepare the shrimp: heat a medium cast iron skillet over medium head and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Pat your shrimp dry and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Add to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes each side, or until the shrimp are cooked through (shrimp should be tightly wrapped). Once cool, cut in half lengthwise so you have two pieces of shrimp. Set aside.
Setup your assembly station: Ensure you have all filling ingredients prepared and ready to go! This will make the assembly process much easier!
Prepare your rice paper wrapper according to package instructions. We usually add a single sheet to a bowl of warm water and leave in for ~30 seconds, so the sheet has softened but is still slightly pliable. Do not do all 6 ahead of time, but instead, do each right before you assemble.
Assemble Shrimp Spring Rolls: Start by adding 3 shrimp halves, seared side down, to the bottom third of a prepared rice paper wrap. Top with Earthbound Farm Organic 50/50 Spinach & Spring mix, 3-4 sticks of sliced cucumber and red bell pepper, followed by the fresh mint, cilantro, and basil. Fold like a burrito – move the bottom of the wrapper over the filling ingredients and pull towards you to wrap tightly. Fold in sides and roll again until closed.
Serve with Peanut Sauce & enjoy!
