I was really excited about this recipe! I love shrimp and I don’t do a lot of Asian cooking so although these Thai Shrimp Spring Rolls were pretty easy, I was initially intimated. Something about working with rice paper makes me nervous because it’s so delicate. This shrimp spring roll recipe used items I already had in my kitchen like bell pepper, cucumber, etc.
The only thing I had to really buy was the shrimp, rice paper and nutritional yeast. I even had the tahini on hand from a past recipe. I was super lazy this day so instead of a trip to the store, I used Instacart. I’m going to have to do a post sometime soon on my love for Instacart but for now just know you can save $10 and try them free by using my code.
I have actually made this recipe two times. Once I used the hummus recipe and the second time I used shrimp for me and tofu for Reese and used a bottled Thai peanut sauce. It was so good and I really enjoyed it both ways. If you make these shrimp spring rolls smaller, they make great appetizers for baby showers, graduation parties, and dinner parties. They can be made in advance so you can store them for later.
