  • 10 sheets rice paper (spring roll paper)
  • 1/2 lb peeled and deveined shrimp, boiled
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
  • 1/2 cucumber peeled, seeds removed and cut into 1-inch sticks
  • 1 cup guacamole
  • 1 cup fresh mint


Fill a large pot or bowl with hot water. Dip 1 sheet of rice paper into hot water for 5 to 10 seconds, or until hydrated. Lay out rice paper on a plate. In the center of the rice paper, arrange some of the shrimp, carrot, cucumber, guacamole and mint. Roll the rice paper by folding 2 sides in and then rolling from the bottom up. The rice paper is sticky and will seal the roll up. Repeat with remaining ingredients. The shrimp rolls can be made 1 day ahead and kept wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated.
