If you’ve never had a spring roll, think of it like a bunch of your favourite fresh, crunchy veggies in a nice, thin rice wrapping paper. And, you get to dip it into delicious, savoury sauce. Yum! What’s not to love? Cooked shrimp is a great protein choice and they make a great flavour and texture combo when paired up with veggies and an easy homemade spicy almond dipping sauce! 

Ingredients

For the Shrimp Spring Rolls:

  • 6 rice spring roll papers
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 12 oz shrimp, deveined
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 3 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 6 leaves green leaf lettuce
  • 12 mint leaves

For the Spicy Almond Dipping Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tsp Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar

Instructions

For the Shrimp Spring Rolls:

  1. Cook the shrimp in olive oil over medium-high heat and season with sea salt and ground black pepper.  Once fully cooked and no longer transparent, remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. Dip one sheet of rice paper in warm water for about 3-4 seconds or hold under running water, until the paper becomes fully moistened with water. Then, lay the wrapper onto your work surface which should be clean and flat. 
  3. Near the bottom of the spring roll in the center, lay out the cucumber, carrots, green leaf lettuce, fresh mint leaves, and cooked shrimp. Line the shrimp in a row.
  4. Fold the bottom over the end of the veggies and shrimp, then fold the uncovered sides inward, then tightly roll the wrapper all the way, as tightly wrapped as possible. Then repeat with the remaining ingredients.

For the Spicy Almond Dipping Sauce:

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the almond butter, hoisin sauce, Sriracha, and rice wine vinegar.
  2. Stir until smooth. You can soften the almond butter by microwaving for 10-15 seconds, if needed.
