These fresh and healthy Vietnamese Shrimp Spring Rolls (Nem Cuon Tom) are accompanied by a sensational peanut dipping sauce that is totally addictive!
I think that Vietnamese Shrimp Spring Rolls (Nem Cuốn Tôm) are one of those things that people love but always assume are just too fiddly or too hard to make. To dispel of that myth, let me tell you – I am not into fiddly. That’s why you’ll never see fancy decorated cakes on my blog. I simply don’t have the patience or co-ordination for fiddly dishes – sweet or savoury.
The flavours are clean and fresh with prawns (shrimp), mint leaves, lettuce, bean sprouts and vermicelli noodles wrapped in rice paper, accompanied by a peanut dipping sauce that is out of this world!! I found the dipping sauce Vietnamese food recipe years ago in a hole-in-the-wall Vietnamese joint in Sydney, one of those places where you get mind-blowing food so cheap you wonder if the bill was added up wrongly.
