How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare rolls, bring 6 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the shrimp; cook 3 minutes or until done. Drain and rinse with cold water. Peel shrimp; chill.

Step 2

Place rice noodles in a large bowl; cover with boiling water. Let stand 8 minutes; drain.

Step 3

Add cold water to a large, shallow dish to a depth of 1 inch. Place 1 rice paper sheet in water. Let stand 2 minutes or until soft. Place rice paper sheet on a flat surface.

Step 4

Spread 1 teaspoon hoisin sauce in the center of sheet; top with 2 to 3 shrimp, 1/4 cup lettuce, about 1/4 cup rice noodles, 1 teaspoon basil, and 1 teaspoon mint. Fold sides of sheet over filling, roll up jelly-roll fashion, and gently press seam to seal. Place roll, seam side down, on a serving platter; cover to keep from drying. Repeat procedure with remaining rice paper, hoisin sauce, shrimp, lettuce, rice noodles, basil, and mint.

Step 5

To prepare dipping sauce, combine soy sauce and remaining ingredients in a small bowl; stir with a whisk.
