Ingredients

  • 1/2 (8-ounce) package dry rice vermicelli
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled, deveined, and cooked
  • 16 (8-inch) round sheets rice paper
  • 2 cups red leaf lettuce leaves

Preparation

  2. Step 2. Place 4 shrimp halves on the lower center of rice paper. Top with 1/4 cup cooked noodles, some lettuce, 3–4 mint leaves, and 2 tablespoons bean sprouts.
  3. Step 3. Fold in sides of rice paper toward center, and roll up wrapper away from you into a tight log. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Cover with plastic wrap until ready to serve. Slice rolls in half, using a slightly wet knife.
