  1. Place the oil into a wok over medium heat. Add shrimp, sugar and salt. Cook for 1 minute, shrimp should have turned pink. When cool, turn out onto a small plate.
  2. Make the salad mix by adding the bean sprouts, cucumber, carrot and ginger together in a bowl, then mixing. Put aside.
  3. Make the herb mix by adding the cilantro, Thai basi and mint (or Vietnamese mint) together on a small plate then mixing. Put aside.
  4. Assemble the plates of shrimps and herbs, the bowl of salad ingredients, the lettuce leaves, opened pack of rice papers and bowl (large enough to fit the rice paper) of clean, cold water. Have a clean cutting board ready to assemble the paper rolls on.
  5. Take 1 sheet of rice paper and immerse in the water for about 30 seconds. When softened, remove the rice paper and place on the cutting board. Place 2 or 3 shrimp on the rice paper first, then the salad mix and herbs and lastly the lettuce on top. Use your judgment on the volume, don't overfill the rolls. You may end up with more than 10, that's ok. Roll up the rice paper, taking care to tuck in the edges of the paper as you roll. Repeat this step until all ingredients are used.
  6. Refrigerate until needed. Serve with peanut satay sauce.


Asian grocers or better supermarkets sell rice paper rolls and Asian herbs.
