Summer Rolls Shrimp Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil, cold-pressed
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 10 ounces medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

Sauce Ingredients

  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon mirin, Mikawa mirin from sweet rice (no sweeteners), or honey
  • 1 tablespoon tamari, wheat-free
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha

Rolls Ingredients

  • ½ bunch cilantro leaves removed
  • ½ bunch mint leaves removed
  • 1 red pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 seedless cucumber, sliced into thin strips
  • 5 ounces baby spinach
  • 12 ounces kelp noodles
  • 10 brown rice wrappers

Summer Rolls Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large pan. Add shrimp and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer to a large bowl and cool.
  2. Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together.
  3. Fill a shallow bowl with warm water. Submerge one rice paper wrapper in the water for about 30 seconds just until soft and pliable. Transfer to a clean, dry cutting board and place 2 to 3 shrimp, a few pieces of pepper and cucumber, a small handful of noodles, and a few spinach, cilantro, and mint leaves in the center.
  4. Fold the bottom half of the wrapper over the filling, pressing down to create a seal, then fold the sides of the wrapper towards the center, tucking in the filling. Roll the wrapper up, like a burrito. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  5. Slice each roll in half diagonally and serve with dipping sauce.
