Shrimp and Mint Summer Rolls with Coconut Sauce are the most refreshing summer appetizer I know of~

These rolls are even more minimal than yesterday’s vegetable version.  I quick sauteed raw shrimp in a little butter, olive oil and lime juice.  I tried cutting the shrimp several different ways, including mincing them.  I liked them sliced in two, lengthwise, best.  I just laid the shrimp on top of mint leaves, squeezed a touch more lime juice over them, and wrapped them up in the spring roll wrapper.  That’s it.  I also layered in a few pea shoots into some of the rolls.

I did a complete 180 on the sauce from yesterday. This sauce is cool and creamy.  I mixed 1/2 cup of coconut milk, the juice of half a lime, a teaspoon of Thai chili sauce and a pinch of salt.  Then stirred in some finely chopped cilantro.  It made the perfect sauce for these rolls.

See yesterday’s post for details on wrapping summer rolls.

So which ones are you going to make first?

    I am so so SO excited to try out this recipe! I almost flipped my lid when I found it; I absolutely love summer/shrimp rolls. We recently moved from Denver, and it is difficult to find a Pho place as amazing as the one near our old house. Now I can make these at home! Thank you bunches!

    I think I said yesterday how I love these little babies – but with the prawns these are even better.

    Oh. My. God. Sue these are incredible! I love these superfine sheets. They make an incredible roll and I can just taste these now. My mouth is drooling!! Sue, may I make a suggestion that you move your ‘pinterest’ pin it badge to the bottom of the post? When I scroll thru my blog list, like many I am attracted to the photos of the food but because your pin it badge is at the top of the post it’s used as the photo that represents the post which I’m sure you’ll agree is not quite what you want! Or ignore my rantings!!

  6. I love this – a perfect summer meal – great flavors –

    I love that last photo! Very cool! I need to get on board with the rolls. Seriously.

    Oh my GOSH. I want this. NOW. Why oh why did you have to move to LA instead of Phoenix? What could CA possibly have to offer that my desire to eat your cooking on a regular basis can’t top?

    Oh yeah, in case you missed it, this looks awesome. I seriously need to get some shrimp ASAP.

    I love summer rolls and yours look so good that I’ll probably make both.I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  12. The vege rolls I think because I love the peanut butter sauce. These do look amazing!

    So translucent, they are stunning. I don’t like fish or seafood unless its slathered in mayo or in a sarnie but the coconut sauce might swing it for me.
