  • 12 large shrimp (headless, peeled and de-veined)
  • 3 ounces vermicelli rice noodles
  • 6 8- inch round rice paper wrapper
  • 1 English cucumber (julienned)
  • 1/2 bunch scallions (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 bunch fresh mint (leaves only)
  • 1/2 bunch Thai basil (whole leaves only)
  • Kosher salt to taste
Sweet Chili Sauce:
  • 3/4 cup sambal oelek (chili paste)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • For Shrimp Summer Rolls: In a large pot, over medium high heat, bring salted water to a boil and lower to a simmer. Prepare a large bowl of ice water and set it near the stove. Poach shrimp in simmering water until just cooked through, about 3 - 4 minutes and remove to the ice water to stop the cooking. Once cooled, remove shrimp to paper towel-lined plate and when dry, cut the shrimp lengthwise down the middle. Set aside.
  • Bring the pot of water back to a boil and cook the vermicelli noodles in the same water, according to the package directions.
  • Prepare a large bowl of warm water. Submerge the rice paper wrappers in water until softened and pliable, about 30 seconds. Remove to a cutting board and smooth with hands. Place 3 shrimp halves down the center of the wrapper. Top with vermicelli noodles, cucumber, scallions, mint and Thai basil.
  • Fold the bottom lip of the rice paper over the noodle and cucumber mixture, fold the sides inward and roll upwards to form a seam.
  • For Sweet Chili Sauce: In a medium bowl, whisk together the sambal oelek, honey, rice vinegar and lime juice.
  • To Serve: Slice the Shrimp Summer Rolls in half on a bias, and serve with a the Sweet Chili Sauce.
