Asian Spring Rolls

Since I was a little "overstuffed" from all the holiday eating I have been doing I decided to make something a little lighter for dinner last night. These are something I have made before and we always eat them up.  I like them because it uses up some leftover veggies in the fridge and also because they don't take a lot of time.  I don't really have a recipe but here is what I basically do. You can change any of the ingredients based on what you have on hand.

Asian Spring Rolls
Serves 2


Spring Roll Skin  *note and picture below*
Rice Noodles, Phad Thai Noodles, or any other noodle
1/2 pound of shrimp, cooked
1/2 cucumber, sliced thinly lengthwise
1 bunch green onions, sliced thinly lengthwise
1/2 bag of shredded carrots
lettuce, torn into smaller pieces

Here are some pictures of what I do:

This is the "Spring Roll Skin".  I've seen it in both packages.  One comes from the Asian Market and one comes from my local grocery store.  I haven't had a hard time finding them in our local store, but if you do the Asian Market is sure to have them.

Soak one "Spring Roll Skin" in warm water until soft. I would say this takes about a minute.  Lay "skin" onto a cutting board or paper towel and put your veggies and other things in.  Roll up like a burrito and slice in half.


Here is the dipping sauce I make.  I kind of just throw things in, so do it to your taste.


1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tsp chile sesame oil 
1/4-1/2 cup water depending on how strong you like it

Whisk ingredients together and serve in little bowls.
