Gỏi Cuốn (Summer Roll) Recipe

Gỏi Cuốn (Summer Roll)

Ingredients

  • Round rice paper
  • Vermicelli
  • Thai basil
  • Mint
  • BBQ pork cut into strips
  • Cucumber cut into strips
  • Bean sprouts
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Shrimp cut in half
  • Thai sausage
  • Peanut butter
  • Hoisin sauce
  • Sriracha chili sauce
  • Water

Instructions

  • Cook the vermicelli according to the package directions. Leave it out, ideally for a couple of hours, so that it is room temperature and "tacky".
  • Mix equal parts peanut butter and hoisin sauce. Add chili sauce to taste. Add water so that it achieves the desired consistency.
  • Dip the rice paper in a large bowl of room temperature water. Let the excess water drip off, then place on a plate. Wait until the water absorbs into the paper, leaving it soft and supple.
  • Place whatever ingredients you would like in the middle of the rice paper. To make it look like at the restaurants, put 4 shrimps on the bottom layer, with a piece of lettuce above it.
  • Fold in the two sides, and roll up the rice paper like a fajita.
  • If preparing many rolls, place on a tray and cover with a damp towel. They will stay fresh for several hours.
