- 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.
- 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.
