Simple light and delicious ingredients wrapped up in rice rolls and served with dipping sauces. These are very popular in Vietnamese and Thai restaurants but are easy to make at home.

  • 8 spring roll wrappers
  • 8 oz. fresh or frozen cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp, coarsely chopped (1-1/3 cups or so, I liked more)
  • 1 small head Bibb lettuce, cored and shredded (2 cups)
  • 1 cup shredded carrots (2 medium) (I like them shredded fine)
  • 1/4 cup thin sliced green onions (2)
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro (tried 2 tsp. of dry, it was just ok)
  • 5 Tbsp. peanut dipping sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. seasoned rice vinegar


Place some warm water in a shallow dish. Dip each spring roll wrapper in warm water; place between damp paper towels for 10 minutes.

In a bowl combine shrimp, lettuce, carrots, green onions, and cilantro. Add 2 tablespoons of the peanut dipping sauce and 1 tablespoon of the rice vinegar. Toss to coat.


For the dipping sauce, in a small bowl stir together the remaining 3 tablespoons peanut sauce and 1 tablespoon rice vinegar; set aside.

Spread 1/3-1/2 cup of the filling about 1/2 inch from the bottom edge of one of the moistened spring roll wrappers. Fold the bottom edge of the wrapper over the filling. Fold in sides. Roll up. Repeat with remaining filling and spring roll wrappers. Can be done ahead, keep cool and cover with moist towel. Cut in half; serve with dipping sauce.


  • I have used leaf lettuce for its color, it is a little bitter so add a pinch or 2 of sugar.

  • Substitute crab, shredded chicken or shredded pork for the shrimp or mix them.

  • A few dashes of toasted sesame oil in with the lettuce gives it a brown taste (good with chicken or pork).

  • Grated cucumber gives it a fresh green taste. (up to 1/3 of a cup)

  • For a more Asian taste, add some grated ginger (a little goes a long way, I keep a piece in the freezer, it keeps for ever).

  • For some heat use a few drops of hot sauce, or put it in the dipping sauce.

  • For flavored and/or colored skins use beer, ale or wine to soak in (that was fun).

  • Add some very thinly slice red cabbage, if raw cabbage is to much drop it into some boiling water for a minute with a little baking soda (it gets rid of the gas factor). Drain and wash and pat dry.

  • Use some grated zucchini instead of cucumber for a less green and more buttery taste.

  • For some unknown heat, add a few of finely grated radishes.

A nice light yet filling appetizer or snack featuring masago*. You can customize your spring roll wraps however you would like, but this is a combination I enjoy making. The amount yield varies depending how ingredients you use per spring roll. With 4 small avocados, I made 8 rolls and plenty of left over ingredients.

Prep Time: 5 minutes



  • avocados
  • masago
  • sour cream
  • power greens
  • spring roll wrapper
  • hot water


  1. You will need a large bowl with hot water to dip spring roll wrappers in. Or follow your spring roll wrapper instructions.
  2. Lay spring wrapper down on your plate. Add your desired amount of masago, avocado, and sour cream.
  3. Optional - add your choice of greens. Then wrap! Ready to enjoy and repeat process to make more!
