Spring rolls are deceptively easy to make but stand out as beautiful, fresh appetizers. If this is your first time making the dipping sauce, go easy on the fish sauce, which has a strong, distinct taste.


  • Spring Rolls:
  • 1 package spring roll wrappers

  • 1 1/2 cups (your choice) mushrooms, carrots, red onion, bell peppers, or cabbage, chopped

  • 8-12 pieces grilled or boiled shrimp (optional, grilled preferred)

  • Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp infused olive oil

  • 1/2 fresh lime or lemon (for juice)

  • dash fish sauce

  • pinch sugar

  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes


  • Prepare your choice of vegetables. You can use them raw or quickly sauté at this point. When making your selections, try to mix a crunchy vegetable with a soft one.
  • For shrimp variant
  • Clean and devein, brush with olive oil, and place directly on medium-hot grill. Grill 3 minutes per side and shrimp will turn pink and curl when done.
  • If boiling, clean and devein, boil 2 quarts of water, boil shrimp for 3 minutes, and then place in cold water/ice water to stop the cooking process.
  • Spring roll step
  • Put spring roll wrapper in warm water for 10 seconds or until pliable. Place softened spring roll wrapper on dry cutting board.
  • Put a spoonful of vegetable filling in middle of wrapper. Add shrimp, if using. Fold sides until they touch the filling. Roll from the back until it looks like a little burrito. Makes about 10 rolls that can be cut in half.
  • Dipping Sauce
  • Combine ingredients in small bowl. Dip spring roll in sauce as desired.


  • Spring roll wrappers are rice wrappers that look like very thin, translucent tortillas, and can be found in grocery stores and specialty Asian groceries.
