Vietnamese Spring Rolls
 
Ingredients
  • ½ cup (about 2 ounces) sliced stemmed California strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Vietnamese fish sauce
  • ½ teaspoon chili flakes
Spring Rolls
  • ¾ pound cooked shelled shrimp
  • ¾ teaspoon seasoned rice vinegar
  • 8 spring roll wrappers
  • 16 mint leaves
  • 16 cilantro sprigs
  • ¾ cup (about 3 ounces) quartered stemmed California strawberries
  • 1 cup peeled, seeded cucumber cut into 2 x ¼ x ⅛-inch strips
Instructions
  1. To make Strawberry Dipping Sauce, in blender or food processor, purée strawberries, vinegar, oil, sugar, and fish sauce until smooth. Add chili flakes; blend until chili flakes are mixed in but still visible. To make Spring Rolls, in bowl, toss shrimp with vinegar; set aside.
  2. Dip 1 wrapper into very hot water for a few seconds until soft and flexible; blot on towel to remove excess water. Place 2 mint leaves, 2 cilantro sprigs, 3 pieces strawberry, 3 shrimp and 3 cucumber strips in a line down the center of wrapper. Fold bottom over filling, fold in sides and roll up into tight cylinder. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 8 rolls.
  3. Serve each roll with 1 tablespoon strawberry Dipping Sauce. Makes 8 spring rolls.
Notes
Rolls may be made up to 8 hours ahead. Place in single layer on plastic wrap-lined pan, cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until needed.
