This Vietnamese favourite is easy to make and is just as suitable for a main course as it is for an appetizer. Look for rice paper wrappers in the Asian section of the grocery store.?

  • Portion size 24 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 oz (115 g) rice stick vermicelli
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 12 rice paper wrapper
  • 36 large shrimp
  • 3 cups thinly sliced leaf lettuce
  • 1/2 sweet red pepper thinly sliced

  • 1 piece (4 inches/10 cm) English cucumber cut in thin strips
  • 1/2 mango peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves

Spicy Almond Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup crunchy natural almond butter
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce

Method

Spicy Almond Dipping Sauce: In small bowl, stir together almond butter, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sriracha and 3 tbsp water. Set aside.

Break vermicelli into thirds and place in bowl; pour boiling water over top and soak until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and toss with sesame oil; let cool.

Fill shallow bowl with warm water. Soak 1 rice paper wrapper in water until softened and pliable, about 30 seconds. Spread wrappers on clean towel.

Along bottom third of wrapper, place 3 shrimp. Top with scant 1/4 cup vermicelli, 1/4 cup lettuce and a few pieces each red pepper, yellow pepper, cucumber and mango. Top with 2 or 3 leaves each mint and cilantro.

From filled side, roll wrapper over filling. Fold sides over and tightly roll up. Place, seam side down, on tray; cover with damp towel. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 12 rolls.

To serve, cut diagonally in half. Serve with dipping sauce.
