Rice paper wrappers, which should be 11 inches, are sold in Asian markets and many supermarkets.
|3||ounces rice vermicelli noodles|
|1||package rice paper wrappers|
|1||head romaine lettuce|
|1/2||bunch fresh mint|
|1/2||bunch fresh cilantro|
|16||large cooked shrimp, split in half|
|1||cucumber, thinly sliced|
2. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add the noodles. Remove the pan from the heat and let the noodles sit for 1 minute. Drain them into a colander and rinse with cold water until the noodles are cold. Transfer to a bowl.
3. Fill a large bowl 3/4 full with warm water. Take 1 round of rice paper and dip it into the warm water, then lay it flat on the counter. The entire round should be wet.
4. Place a small amount of noodles on the rice paper, leaving a 1-inch border. Add lettuce, about 2 or 3 mint leaves, and cilantro. Fold both ends of the rice paper over the filling, then fold the side that is closest to you over the filling. Roll it over once - away from you. Place 2 pieces of the split shrimp and some cucumber slices on the roll. Continue to roll until the round is completely rolled up. Continue making rolls using the remaining ingredients. Serve with dipping sauce.
|1||cup hoisin sauce|
|1/4||cup creamy peanut butter|
