    About this recipe: Delicate Vietnamese-style spring roll wrappers are filled with rice noodles, diced prawns, shredded carrot, lettuce and basil and dipped in warm hoi-sin sauce.

    Serves: 8 

    • 250g rice vermicelli
    • 250g cooked, peeled prawns, cut in half lengthwise
    • 8 rice paper (spring roll) wrappers
    • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into thin strips

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil. Remove from heat. Place rice vermicelli in boiling water, remove from heat, and let soak 3 to 5 minutes, until soft.
    2. Drain, and rinse thoroughly with cold water so that they don't stick together.
    3. Fill a large bowl with hot water. Dip one rice wrapper in the hot water for 1 second to soften. Lay wrapper flat, and place desired amounts of noodles, prawns, carrot, lettuce and basil in the centre.
    4. Roll the edges of the wrapper slightly inward. Beginning at the bottom edge of wrapper, tightly wrapping in the ingredients. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
    5. In a small bowl, mix the hoisin sauce with water until desired consistency has been reached. Heat the mixture for a few seconds in the microwave.
    6. Serve the spring rolls with the warm dipping sauce.
