My recipe for crunchy summer rolls with shrimp and peanut dip is an absolute must-have in summer. In this article, I’ll show you how you can easily prepare these deliciously light rolls made of rice paper.
I can still remember the first time I ate these delicious Summer Rolls at the Vietnamese restaurant last summer. With no expectation and no introduction, I was served two of these crunchy rolls for starters, which were filled with fresh prawns and salad. There was also a peanut dip and extra coriander. All in all, the Summer Rolls were just perfect and since then I haven’t been able to eat enough of these small rice paper rolls.
After the temperatures reached a record high again this summer, I decided to simply prepare the Summer Rolls myself. The first attempt actually turned out to be a bit tricky, because you have to get the hang of rolling up first. I’ll explain my tricks to you now.
First of all, of course, you need rice paper as a basis. I continued to choose cucumber, carrots, lettuce, sprouts, shrimp and glass noodles for the filling. Of course, you can also fill your summer rolls differently, because creativity is limitless here.
How are the summer rolls rolled perfectly?
But now to the roll: I simply held the rice paper for a few seconds (5-6) from both sides under a jet of water and then laid it out on a damp plate. The rice paper will become more elastic in the next few moments, but will retain its basic structure. If you soak it in water for too long, it will become too soft and no longer roll up well. Then I laid out my filling except for the prawns in the upper half and rolled up half of it tightly for the first time. Then I put 3-4 shrimp on the leftover piece and folded the sides of the rice paper towards the middle so that nothing falls out at the ends. Finally the Summer Rolls are rolled up. Make sure that they are really rolled up tightly and that the sides are tightly closed. Otherwise your summer rolls will fall apart again.
If you then leave the Summer Rolls on the plate for a moment, the rice paper will solidify again by itself. Your Summer Rolls are ready!
