How to make it

  • Fill a large deep skillet or wok with an inch or so of water. Add chili peppers and lime and bring to a boil. Add shrimp and boil till done. Just a few minutes. Shrimp should be pink and firm. Drain and rinse in cool water to stop cooking. Set aside.
  • Cook bean thread according to packaging. Drain, rinsing in cold water, then gently squeeze out excess moisture. Chop noodles so threads are just a few inches long.
  • In a large bowl toss cabbage, carrot, onions and noodles till thoroughly mixed.
  • In a flat pan at least 10 inches wide fill about an inch deep with very warm water. Soak wrappers, one wrapper at a time for 30 seconds or so until softened.
  • Spread wrapper onto kitchen towel. Place about 1/4 cup of cabbage mixture on bottom third of wrapper. Place 2 or 3 shrimp on top and a sprinkle of basil leaves.
  • Fold bottom of wrapper up over filling. Fold sides in, then tightly roll up the remainder. Place on serving platter. Repeat until all the filling is used up.
  • You may serve immediately or tightly seal in airtight container and refrigerate up to 2 or 3 days.
  • Serve with dipping sauces:

  • <a href="Hot And Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce">Hot and Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce</a>

    I don't think I've ever had spring rolls. They look so good. Saving this to try later.
