Rice Paper Shrimp Rolls

Rice Paper Shrimp Rolls

Rice paper may not provide much nutritional value, but it is gluten free and very user-friendly. It also offers a low calorie approach to making your clean eats look more like cheats. I bet you get really bored eating shrimp and salad. So why not play tricks on your taste buds by wrapping your shrimp salad into a low-calorie edible wrapper?

Recipe

This recipe yields 2 rice paper shrimp rolls:

NOTE:

  • Make one roll at a time to prevent a sticky rice paper disaster!
  • Get all of your ingredients ready to go! Once you wet the rice paper, you need to hustle.

  1. Soak a sheet of Rice Paper under warm running tap water for about 15 seconds. Shake to dry it off.
  2. Place the rice paper onto a plate.
  3. Load the rice paper with 2 oz of shrimp, 1/4 cup of enoki mushrooms, 1/4 cup of broccoli slaw (trust me, that's all that will fit!).
  4. Drizzle 1/2 TBSP of Wholly Spicy Guacamole (available in your grocery store). This is a tasty way to include a healthy fat in this recipe.
  5. Neatly fold the bottom edge of the rice paper over the filling. Then fold in the side edges of the rice paper. Roll up the rice paper roll to form a neatly packed cylinder. I was never particularly good at origami, so I just rolled it up like a sleeping bag. Do whatever works for you!
  6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 for the second roll.

Substitutions:

  • Feel free to use your favourite fresh vegetables. I like to save time by purchasing pre-washed and cut veggies and pre-cooked shrimp.
  • I use enoki mushrooms but you can use dried vermicelli noodles or miracle noodles.
  • You can wrap your shrimp and veggies with collard greens instead of rice paper.
  • Instead of guacamole, you can use shrimp sauce. Here is my shrimp sauce version:
