These are beyond amazing... I was SO nervous to try them and have had a really difficult time finding rice paper. For those of you who are novice kitchenistas like myself, they are not in the refrigerated section! They come in a stack of squares, similar to a stiff paper. My husband and I went to an asian food store to find them and I almost missed them!! The clerk didn't understand what I was looking for, and I was so happy to stumble upon them on my way out! Also, I was lucky enough to meet a seasoned expert at the asian food store and almost bought the wrong fish sauce. According to your taste, some are much more anchovy friendly, and smell substantially worse. I am SO glad I asked the gal in front of me... she helped me pick a different one, and the sauce did not smell fishy at all (I HATE the smell of fish). "Tiparos" was the fish sauce the nice lady recommended FYI :-) Also, I was confused on how to wrap the rolls... The rice paper called "Three Ladies Brand" has a diagram on the back on how to do it, and by the fourth roll, they looked just like the rolls I order at my favorite restaurant. Last, I love peanut sauce, and decided to look for another recipe. Found a really easy and absolutely amazing recipe! Just Hoisin Sauce, Crunchy Peanut Butter... Microwave for 45 seconds, then add water to make it creamy. I could have licked the bowl!! Enjoy! I will be making them again next week :-)
