Summer Rolls

Ever go to your favorite sushi or Asian restaurant and crave those light and fresh summer rolls? They are so easy to make and a perfect summertime recipe for any get together! Your local Asian market is just the place to get all the ingredients you need.

1 Package of Rice Paper (Spring roll wrappers)
1 Package of Bean Strings
1 Cucumber, sliced lengthwise
4 Green onions, sliced lengthwise
1 Carrot, sliced lengthwise
1 tsp chopped Ginger
Small shrimp, cooked with the tails cut off
Rice Vinegar

Warm some water in a sauce pan or large bowl. Chop all veggies and prepare shrimp. Prepare the rice wraps by soaking them one by one in the warm water for 5-10 seconds. Once soft, place ingredients in the center, sprinkle on a little rice vinegar and cilantro, fold over the top and bottom, then the right side and roll. Serve with spicy Thai sauce or Peanut Sauce (recipe to follow).

For typical Asian spring rolls, complete the process above, but fry the roll in oil in low heat until crispy. This recipe can be used with any ingredients you like!
