Vietnamese Rolls

Ok finally a moment to get the recipe from my book for you. I don’t normally use the exact amount of  ingredients in this dish. You should see for yourself how many rolls you need. It’s so easy to do and you can experiment as well with the filling, I for example like to add more peanut sauce and lettuce, for my husband I need to remove coriander.

Ingredients and method:

Chopped prawns fry with chopped garlic, shallots, chinese turnip, add salt, sherry, fish sauce, sesame oil.

Rice paper dip in lukewarm water and place on a wet cloth.

Lay one piece of lettuce, peanut sauce*, coriander and a spoon of fried mixture and roll.

Important – keep the ready rolls on wet cloth and covered (the rice paper dries fast)!

Peanut Sauce*

Heat oil add garlic, 1 tbsp of tomato paste, hoisin sauce = sweet plum sauce, sugar, freshly chopped chilli, water.

Cook for 3 min and add chopped/crushed peanuts or chunky peanut butter.


 If you have any questions please let me know, I’ll be happy to help.
