Whenever I have friends over for dinner, I love making a batch of Vietnamese-style spring rolls to serve as appetizer.

Unlike Chinese-style deep fried spring rolls, these Vietnamese spring rolls are very light and fresh. You wrap thinly sliced vegetables, cooked shrimp, and fresh herbs in a neat rice paper package. They’re the perfect pre-dinner snack!

I often buy cooked shrimp for spring rolls because I can’t be bothered to cook the shrimp and wait for it to cool. Pre-cooked shrimp makes the prep work quick and easy.

I also use fresh vegetables in my spring rolls instead of the traditional pickled vegetables. I think the peanut dipping sauce you serve alongside carries enough flavor!

Many spring roll recipes add thin vermicelli rice noodles to the roll, but I often skip them in favor of more vegetables.

If you’re making these for a light lunch instead of an appetizer, you might add noodles to make the rolls more substantial. (Cook them according to package instructions and add them along with the vegetables when rolling.)

How to make spring rolls

Shrimp Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce Recipe

If you buy raw shrimp, be sure to cook it before making this recipe.

For more flavorful rolls, try drizzling a little of the prepared peanut sauce or store-bought sweet chili sauce over the ingredients before rolling the spring rolls.

If you are serving these spring rolls to anyone with nut allergies, a good alternative to the peanut sauce is a sweet chili sauce.

These spring rolls are best consumed the same day they are made. Once you refrigerate the spring rolls, the rice paper wrapper will harden.


For the spring rolls:

  • 13 to 15 large (10-inch) rice paper wrappers
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and sliced into matchsticks
  • 2 medium red bell peppers, seeded and sliced into ¼-inch strips
  • 2 Persian cucumbers, sliced into matchsticks (or use half of an English cucumber)
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • 1 pound (450g) 31/40-count cooked shrimp
  • Sweet chili sauce, optional for extra flavor

For the peanut sauce:

  • 1/2 cup creamy unsalted peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey (sugar or maple syrup works too)
  • Juice from 1/2 lime (about 1 to 1 ½ tablespoons)
  • 5 tablespoons filtered water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


1 Prepare your workspace: Fill a wide, shallow bowl, like a pasta bowl, with lukewarm water. Lightly wet the surface of a cutting board. This helps prevent the rice paper from sticking onto the board.

Have all your ingredients prepped and arranged in bowls near your workspace. Brush a serving platter with a very light coating of sesame oil or neutral-flavored oil and place it near your work surface; the oil will help prevent the finished rolls from sticking to the platter.

2 Soften the rice paper wrapper: Dip one of the rice paper wrappers into the water and swirl it around until the entire surface is evenly moistened (20 to 40 seconds or so). It should start to feel softened and malleable. If the rice paper rips or tears, you softened it for too long; discard and start again with a fresh wrapper.

3 Arrange the vegetables and shrimp on the wrapper: Place the softened rice paper onto the wet board. Arrange some carrots, cucumbers, peppers and a few basil and mint leaves in a line about 1 inch away from the bottom edge of the wrapper. Line 3 pieces of shrimp about 1 1/2 inches above the vegetables.

If you like, drizzle a little peanut sauce or sweet chili sauce over the ingredients at this point for some extra flavor.

4 Wrap the spring rolls: Fold the bottom part of the rice paper wrapper over the vegetables. Continue rolling the everything toward the shrimp.

Once you reach the shrimp, stop and fold the left and right sides of the wrapper toward the center. Continue rolling until you reach the top and form a roll.

Place the finished spring roll on the platter. Repeat for the remaining spring rolls.

5 Make the peanut dipping sauce. Mix together the peanut butter, tamari, rice vinegar, honey, lime juice, water, and salt. Taste, and adjust the seasonings to your taste. Transfer to a small bowl and place on the platter with the spring rolls.

6 Serve the spring rolls: These rolls are best if served the day they are made. If not serving immediately, cover the platter with a slightly damp cloth and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Fresh Spring Rolls with Shrimp and Peanut Sauce

By: Summer Yule · This post may contain affiliate links.

Here in the northeast United States, the weather is warming, and I&rsquom craving fresh flavors. If you are feeling similarly, try these spring rolls that incorporate a variety of crunchy veggies and fresh herbs. You don&rsquot have to turn on the oven to make this dish, which comes complete with a delicious peanut dipping sauce. Follow my step-by-step instructions you&rsquoll see that making spring rolls may be easier than you thought!

IMVHO, fresh spring rolls always win out compared to deep-fried spring rolls and egg rolls. There&rsquos something about the colors and textures of a fresh spring roll that always draws me in.

So, I might be a bit biased when I say that these spring rolls are so dang good. With shrimp and a generous amount of my homemade Georgia peanut sauce for dipping, this is my ideal small lunch.

If you need a second opinion before giving these a try, my husband enjoyed these immensely as well. He claimed they are similar to an appetizer he likes to get at the Cheesecake Factory. (This is a huge compliment in our household as we are big Cheesecake Factory fans here!)

The downside to making spring rolls is that they can be a bit time-consuming to assemble. You definitely want to practice mise en place for this one. That means you should have all of your ingredients out and ready to go before you begin wrapping.

Wash the herbs, chop the veggies, cook the noodles, and cook the shrimp. After you soak a rice paper wrapper, you want to be ready to fill and wrap it right away. You&rsquore more likely to have good results when you don&rsquot let your wrapper soak for too long and when you fill them immediately after soaking.

The art of wrapping fresh spring rolls

I&rsquom no spring roll-wrapping expert, and for years my rice paper would tear while wrapping. I&rsquove learned through the years to soak the rice paper for a very short time, as directed on the package. They are flexible but don&rsquot feel quite &ldquodone&rdquo at this point.

I used to soak them a little longer than the package recommended since they felt like they might be too firm. This was a mistake that led to rice paper tearing too easily. I&rsquove learned my lesson!

If you accidentally soak your rice papers a little too long, try double-wrapping your spring rolls. This was the strategy I used for years until I stopped oversoaking.

If you have a sushi mat, I highly recommend using it as your work surface. I&rsquove used waxed paper as well, but the damp rice paper tends to be more likely to stick to it. The rice paper peels fairly easily from the sushi mat, so it is my work surface of choice.

Also (and I know this will horrify professional chefs), I don&rsquot separate the thin blocks of rice vermicelli after rehydrating. I find that having the noodles stuck together makes them much easier to work with. We&rsquore packing them tightly together into rice paper wrappers, so why bother separating the noodles first?

One more tip is to layer the ingredients that will end up on top of your spring roll first. You are essentially constructing it upside down, wrapping, and flipping it over. If you want to see the shrimp on top, layer them on the rice paper first.

I made a video for this one if you&rsquore a more visual person. I might have overdone it with my music selection. Haha Scroll on down to the recipe if you want to check it out!

How to make spring rolls without refined grains

If you&rsquore a regular reader, you know that I do not completely avoid refined grains (or added sugar). I do limit these items and don&rsquot feature recipes that use these ingredients on this site.

However, for this recipe, I did use white paper wrappers and white rice vermicelli. I felt it was better to use what I had in my pantry rather than order additional items from the store.

A lot of grain products (including rice) have buying limits here at the moment. I felt it would be more responsible to put less stress on the system by using what I already had on hand.

If you want to make these without refined grains, there are a few options you can use. Brown rice paper wrappers do exist, and you can purchase them on Amazon here.

The fiber, iron, and calories for this product are identical to the white rice paper wrappers. Honestly, there isn&rsquot a huge nutritional advantage compared to using the regular rice paper. Organic brown rice paper wrappers are also available for a slightly higher price.

You could also substitute the white rice vermicelli I used for a whole grain version. This swap will add a little more fiber to your spring rolls.

If you have a weight loss goal, shirataki noodles may be an even better swap. They have a similar texture to rice noodles but are far lower in calories (and carbs).

As you can see, it&rsquos not too difficult to make these without refined grains if you choose to do so. And if you, like me, occasionally don&rsquot eat &ldquoperfectly&rdquo (however you&rsquod define it), I hope you don&rsquot feel guilty about it! I&rsquove found that maintaining some flexibility has helped keep my dietary pattern sustainable through the years.

And now for the disclaimer&hellip

Shrimp Spring Rolls With Peanut Sauce


1 pound (21/25 count) fresh shrimp, shelled and deveined
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 tablespoon light soy sauce (use tamari, if gluten free)
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon honey

Spring Rolls
12 rice paper wrappers
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1 1/3 cups shredded red cabbage (about a quarter of a small head of cabbage)
1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
Pickled carrots and cucumber
6 large strawberries, sliced

Peanut Sauce
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk (from the can)
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon sesame oil


PREPARE THE SHRIMP: Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil over medium heat. Add the ginger and garlic and let them cook for about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook each side for 2 to 3 minutes. The shrimp will be done when it looks orange and the shrimp has started curling inward. While the shrimp is cooking, stir the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and honey. Drizzle this sauce over cooked shrimp. Let the shrimp cool for at least 20 minutes.

PREPARE THE SPRING ROLLS: Fill a bowl with lukewarm to warm water. Dip a sheet of rice paper wrapper and wet it entirely. The wrapper doesn’t have to be completely soft, just moist. It will continue to soften as you add more ingredients to it. Place the wrapper on a flat surface. Fill the wrapper with shrimp, a slice of strawberry, all the vegetables, 2 to 3 basil leaves, and a few cilantro leaves. Fold the lower half of the wrapper over the filling. Fold in the left and right sides toward the center. Continue rolling everything like you would a burrito. The spring rolls should seal nicely.

PREPARE THE DIPPING SAUCE: In a small bowl, mix all the peanut sauce ingredients until well incorporated.

Shrimp Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce

These fresh Shrimp Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce by The Mindful Hapa are the perfect celebration of summer flavor and fresh produce. They’re light and crisp (because of fresh crunchy veggies, not a fried wrapper), gluten-free, dairy-free, and a fun variation of the traditional Vietnamese Spring Roll recipe!

Prepare the shrimp: heat a medium cast iron skillet over medium head and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Pat your shrimp dry and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Add to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes each side, or until the shrimp are cooked through (shrimp should be tightly wrapped). Once cool, cut in half lengthwise so you have two pieces of shrimp. Set aside.

Setup your assembly station: Ensure you have all filling ingredients prepared and ready to go! This will make the assembly process much easier!

Prepare your rice paper wrapper according to package instructions. We usually add a single sheet to a bowl of warm water and leave in for

30 seconds, so the sheet has softened but is still slightly pliable. Do not do all 6 ahead of time, but instead, do each right before you assemble.

Assemble Shrimp Spring Rolls: Start by adding 3 shrimp halves, seared side down, to the bottom third of a prepared rice paper wrap. Top with Earthbound Farm Organic 50/50 Spinach & Spring mix, 3-4 sticks of sliced cucumber and red bell pepper, followed by the fresh mint, cilantro, and basil. Fold like a burrito – move the bottom of the wrapper over the filling ingredients and pull towards you to wrap tightly. Fold in sides and roll again until closed.

Serve with Peanut Sauce & enjoy!

These light and healthy Vietnamese-influenced summer rolls are filled with cooked shrimp, rice noodles, and plenty of fresh herbs and vegetables for flavor and crunch. Once your ingredients are prepped, the rolling fun begins as sheets of rice paper are softened in water and used for the wrappers. Dipped in a spicy peanut sauce, these rolls are a great hot-weather appetizer or light lunch. If your appetite is piqued, learn more about Vietnamese food (and prepare to get even hungrier).

What to buy: We like to use natural peanut butter in this recipe. If you use the conventional kind, omit the sugar called for in the sauce. Look for hoisin sauce and chile-garlic paste in the Asian section of your supermarket. For the chile paste, we prefer the one made by Huy Fong Foods (with the rooster on the jar!). The rice stick noodles and rice paper wrappers can be found in most Asian grocery stores. For the wrappers, we like the Red Rose brand. For more on the seafood, see our guide on how to buy shrimp.

Game plan: Be sure to have all your ingredients ready and easily accessible when you start to roll, and give yourself plenty of time (and counter space) to make these. Also be sure to have a few extra rice paper wrappers on hand—it may take a few tries before you’re rolling like a pro.

Store the summer rolls in a dish or plastic container that’s roomy enough to hold them without their touching. Place a damp paper towel in the bottom of the container to keep the rolls moist. Cover tightly with plastic wrap.

You can make the peanut sauce a day ahead. Just keep it refrigerated in a covered container. Let it sit for a bit at room temperature before serving.

What to buy

T-fal Specialty Nonstick 3-Quart Saucepan with Lid, $19.99 on Amazon

From making sauces to boiling or steaming vegetables to cooking pasta, a good size saucepan can do a lot, so it's a great kitchen staple.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls with Shrimp + Peanut Sauce

I absolutely adore Vietnamese cuisine. Years ago when I was pregnant with my son, we would go to our favorite local Vietnamese restaurant so often that we basically lived there.

As far as cooking Vietnamese food at home, I haven’t done it a ton yet, but I really do love it.

Some of my favorite items at any Vietnamese restaurant are recipes made using rice paper wrappers.

Have you ever had them? They’re those translucent, tacky-to-the-touch sheets that wrap around food to contain it, almost like a burrito.

They’re sold in sheets that are dry and brittle, and you need to soak them in water to make them pliable.

They’re a little tricky to work with, but I promise you can catch on with just a little practice. Be sure to check out the demo I did of this recipe for more on that.

I most often find Vietnamese appetizer recipes that utilize rice paper wrappers. My favorites are summer rolls and fresh spring rolls (also sometimes called simply, “fresh rolls”).

There’s a lot of information online about the difference between spring rolls and summer rolls. For these particular rolls, I chose to call them Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls with Shrimp + Peanut Sauce because they have both veggies and shrimp inside of them. From what I’ve read, the translucent rolls don’t usually contain meat. So that’s where I landed.

This recipe is a combination of things that I have loved over the years. I first made a similar one at home back in 2014 when entertaining some friends on a hot summer day.

It was an easy appetizer to make, and it majorly impressed my friends! I mean, just look at those beautiful colors…

After making this recipe on Facebook LIVE this summer, I realized that a different order of assembly made these rolls look the most appealing. The photo above (from 2014), shows the way I used to do it – I’d put the shrimp down on the soaked rice paper first and top with the noodles.

What I realized is that if you put the colorful ingredients on top of the shrimp, they make a nice colorful backdrop for the shrimp and they “pop” more. Since the shrimp have white in them, they can sometimes get a bit lost if they have a big pile of white noodles behind them.

Because one of the best parts of this recipe is the fact that you can see the mixture of ingredients through the rice paper wrapper.

The other ingredient that’s a bit different to many US kitchens is the type of noodles used inside the spring rolls. You can use bean thread noodles (also called glass or cellophane noodles) or rice vermicelli, which is what I used here.

Whichever noodles you end up getting, just be sure to read the package directions for how to cook them properly. Some need to be covered in boiling water for a few minutes, some just need to soak for a bit. It varies a bit from brand to brand, but they’re all pretty quick-cooking.

Either way, after they’re cooked, rinsed in cold water, and drained, they get tossed with seasoned rice vinegar. This adds a nice tangy flavor that goes really well with all of the fresh produce that gets wrapped up in the rice paper wrappers.

Once your ingredients are all prepped, assembly happens pretty quickly. You can totally prep your filling ingredients ahead of time and keep them in the fridge until you’re ready.

I like laying out all of my ingredients on a quarter sheet pan or platter so I can just grab from each pile as I go, making sure to add a bit of each ingredient to my spring roll wrappers.

If you’re looking for a few more shortcuts, feel free to buy already shredded lettuce, cabbage, and carrots. You could even swap that out for a packaged coleslaw mix, which usually has a few types of cabbage and carrots in it already.

Purple cabbage would be really pretty in here, too.

Feel free to mix and match ingredients that you have on hand, or that you enjoy raw. If you aren’t into shrimp you could use chilled meat that’s already cooked and shredded, like chicken or beef. Tofu would be nice here as well.

These spring rolls are a bit of a revamped version of Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls and some Vegetable Summer Rolls that I made with my friend Betsy back in 2011. It brings my favorite parts of both recipes into one, and my family really, really loves them.

I typically serve these rolls with a sorta-spicy peanut dipping sauce. If it’s too spicy for you, feel free to reduce or omit the red pepper flakes. And if you’re looking for an additional sauce (or just a different sauce), a simple fish sauce mixture is in the recipe notes below.

If you make these in advance and want to store them, you’ll need to keep a few things in mind to keep them from sticking to each other. The rice paper wrappers are really sticky!

I like to dampen a kitchen towel with cold water (I tend to use unpaper towels for this) but you could also use paper towels and wring it out. I set the spring rolls onto the damp towels and make sure they aren’t touching. You can pinch the towel up in between the rolls to ensure they don’t stick together.

If you have a deep container you can do multiple layers, just place another damp towel on top of the bottom layer before adding more.

Pop a lid on the container and store in the fridge until you’re ready to dig in! I find that these last well for about 2 days. I don’t like keeping seafood for much longer than that personally, but feel free to use your own discretion here.

If you find yourself with leftover filling ingredients and no more rice paper wrappers you can serve this as a big salad, drizzled with the peanut sauce. It’s very tasty and you don’t have to bother wrapping and rolling!
