  • Yield: Makes 4 servings (serving size: 2 shrimp rolls and about 4 teaspoons sauce)
  • Prep time: 35 Minutes
  • Total: 35 Minutes


  • Dipping sauce:
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced scallion
  • Rolls:
  • 8 (8-inch) round sheets rice paper
  • 16 large basil leaves
  • 4 red leaf lettuce leaves, spines removed and torn into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked bean threads, or cellophane noodles (1 3/4 ounces dried), cooled, rinsed, and squeezed dry
  • 1/2 small mango, peeled and sliced into thin strips (about 1 cup)
  • 16 medium shrimp, cooked and peeled, tails removed and sliced in half down the middle
  • 16 large mint leaves


1. To make dipping sauce: Combine first 5 ingredients (through scallion) in a small bowl; refrigerate.

2. To make rolls: Fill a large shallow dish with warm water. Wet a clean kitchen towel; wring out and place on a clean work surface. Place 1 rice paper sheet in warm water; soak to soften (about 30 seconds). Remove from water; place on kitchen towel. Working quickly, place 2 basil leaves facedown in center of paper, leaving 3 inches at bottom of paper and about 1 1/2 inches on each side. Place 3 pieces lettuce on top of basil; mound 2 tablespoons noodles on top of lettuce. Top each with mango strips (1/4 ounce) and 4 shrimp halves. Arrange 2 mint leaves, face-side up, on top of shrimp. Pull bottom of wrapper over filling, fold in sides, and roll wrapper into a cylinder. Repeat with remaining ingredients; serve with dipping sauce.
