How to make it

  • Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, add the vermicelli and cook 1-2 minutes until just tender; drain and cool.
  • Using a large non-stick frying pan, make a thin omelette with the eggs, lightly seasoned with a pinch of salt. Allow omelette to cool before cutting it into strips.
  • Dip a sheet of rice paper into a large bowl of hot water very quickly to soften it. Place on a plate and stand 30 seconds to allow rice paper to dry out slightly and soften. You can do up to 4 sheets of rice paper at a time without them drying out too much. This will speed up the process.
  • Arrange the lettuce, vermicelli, prawns, some omelette, some mint and some basil on each rice paper round and roll up. Arrange on a platter.
  • Dip the roll into the sauce; mix equal amounts of fish sauce and water. Add a pinch of sugar, garlic, lemon juice and the chilli (if using).

    Hi pintobean, Fish sauce can be bought at any Asian grocery store. They are easy to find as it's a common ingredient in south eastern cuisines.

    Dee, Glad you I can help with you this recipe. Chickpea chef, Rice vermicelli is thin rice noodles, also sometimes called glass noodles. It's very easy to cook. Just soak in boiling water for a few minutes. I hope you try this.

    I love Vietnamese food and I am so happy to see this recipe. I just found the rice papers here in the NW of England where I live. I used to use them regularly when I lived in the states and missed them terribly here. They can be used for so much. Anyway, just found some in the supermarket and now I have a NEW recipe to try them with. Thank you ! Thank you !
