How to make it
- In a medium bowl, cover the cellophane noodles with hot water and let stand until soft, 30 minutes. Drain and cover with a damp paper towel until ready to use.
- Light a grill. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and grill over moderately high heat until they're just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Let cool, then cut each shrimp in half lengthwise.
- Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk the soy sauce with the rice vinegar, honey, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds and scallion, and sesame oil.
- Soak 1 wrapper in hot water until pliable.
- Lay the wrapper on a cutting board and blot dry. Arrange 2 pieces of romaine on the bottom third of the wrapper.
- Top with some of the cellophane noodles, shrimp, mint, cilantro and carrot. Roll up the wrapper, tucking in the ends as you roll.
- Cover with a damp paper towel. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and fillings.
- Cut each roll in half and serve with the dipping sauce.
