These were very good!! I added thin sliced grilled pork meat because that's my favorite combination, but of course you can just put shrimp by itself. the dipping sauce is not quite the same as the one in my favorite Vietnamese restaurant, but it is good. My advice is to adjust the herbs to your preference, don't use something you don't like because their flavor will come up quite clear in your palate (not subtle like when they are cooked into something).
Awesome!!! My husband and are no cooks but these turned out to taste like restaurant quality!! We used boiled shrimp from the store and added bean sprouts as well. We also used regular basil (I could not find Thai basil at the store). The video was very helpful as well.
I served this to friends and we all loved it. So much that the last one got eaten at 8am for breakfast as we were going away and couldnt stand the thought of wasting it! I subbed oyster sauce for fish sauce, and scallops for shrimp, that's what I had on hand. YUM. Also made it again with matchstick carrots and diced red pepper instead of the shrimp, very good. Very versatile recipe.
I used a peanut sauce instead of the dipping sauce with this recipe, but overall, I didn't think the spring rolls had much flavor. From an eye appeal perspective, I thought they needed a little bit of color. If I make these again, I'll add some grated carrot, maybe some very thinly-sliced red bell pepper, and most likely, more mint. But these are all personal taste preferences.
These were very good...tricky but with practice I'm sure I'll get better at rolling them...love how versatile a recipe this is...will play around with the dipping sauce to suit my tastes...thank you!
I added julienned cucumber and some avocado. Poured the 1st dipping sauce right into them, and served with a peanut sauce. They were great!
