Create Your Own Homemade Fresh Shrimp Rolls With Savory Peanut Dipping Sauce

It’s easy to switch up the toppings to make this a daily lunch or dinner option. Using a different meat like grilled pork or chicken can change up the taste in a flash, or loading up even more veggies makes these friendly for the vegetarians out there. Don’t forget a yummy dipping sauce to get these flying off the table!

Shrimp Rolls1


For the rolls

  • 9 jumbo shrimp, boiled and peeled (or 3 for each roll you want to make)
  • spring mix lettuce, rinsed, dried and torn to fit
  • fresh mint leaves
  • 1 medium seedless cucumber, julienned
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • fresh basil leaves
  • fresh cilantro leaves
  • About 2 ounces vermicelli noodles, optional
  • spring roll wrappers, round

For the dipping sauce

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped roasted peanuts


For the rolls, cover vermicelli noodles with boiling water and let stand for 10 minutes.

In a round pie plate or bowl that’s bigger than the wrappers, add enough hot water to come half way up the side.
