Le Colonial Shrimp Rolls

  • I bag rice noodles, cooked and drained
  • I lb fresh shrimp (26/30 size, shell on)
  • 2 Tbl spoons kosher salt
  • 2 each lemongrass stalk
  • 1 each ginger root
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 4 tbl spoons hot water
  • ¼ cup Hoisin sauce
  • 1 Tbl spoons Siracha
  • I package shrimp roll rice paper wrappers
  • 8 cups warm tap water
  • 1 head of green leaf lettuce washed and drained
  • 2 whole carrots slice thin matchsticks
  • 1 bunch cilantro, washed and picked
  • 1 small bunch fresh mint, washed and picked
  • ½ lb bean sprouts
  • 1 Tbl spoons crushed toasted peanuts

Start by cooking rice noodles according to package instructions. When noodles are done, drain and place under cool running water. Once cool, drain again and set aside.

Cooking the shrimp: Place water in a large pot and add salt, lemongrass, ginger root, and lemons and bring to a boil. Add shrimp and cook for 4 minutes—once water comes back to a boil, remove shrimp and place in ice bath, once chilled, peel and devein shrimp and cut in half.

Preparing the sauce: in a thick base small pot over low heat add peanut butter, 4 tbl spoons HOT water, hoisin and sriracha. If the sauce is too thick add more water until desired consistency is reached. Keep chilled.

Rolling the spring rolls: Working on a flat surface, lightly pass the spring roll wrapper in warm water, lay the wrapper flat, add lettuce, rice noodles, carrots, Asian chives, cilantro, mint, and beansprouts. Add sliced shrimp, then finish rolling. Serve with side of peanut sauce, add crushed toasted peanuts for texture.

Chef’s Notes:

· Shrimp: only use shell-on shrimp to insure perfect tender shrimp.

· Lettuce: if you care for texture, use butter lettuce, iceberg or simply crisp mixed greens.

· Rice noodles: choose “rice sticks noodles”.

· Spring roll wrapper: choose a brand with low tapioca flour.

· Vegan, vegetarian: instead of shrimp use organic tofu, avocado.
