Low Carb Shrimp Spring Rolls


My dad was hosting a church benefit and needed some help cooking for 35 people. He had a health conscious menu of fresh shrimp spring rolls, roasted veggies, kale salad, and stuffed chicken. I learned how to butterfly, stuff and truss chicken breast!

He made a light carb-friendly shrimp spring roll without rice noodles, which was surprisingly refreshing and filling. It was essentially a shrimp salad in rice paper. I thought this was a great idea and decided to make them for dinner one day. I used cilantro lime shrimp {Costco $10}, mixed green salad and sliced red, yellow and orange bell peppers. Simply wrap up your ingredients in rice paper and dip in peanut sauce.

I recommend using a good quality rice paper brand because the cheap versions usually break and tear. Try using Three Ladies brand. I made my own peanut sauce with peanut butter, hoison sauce, sugar, salt, coco rico, starch and sriracha.
