One of my favorite foods is cold Spring Rolls with shrimp & mint and either a nice fish sauce on the side, or my favorite, some peanut sauce to dip them into! I want to learn how to make them, and found this great recipe & excellent tutorial on Pinterest that was from a cooking website called notenoughcinnamon.com.

The recipe above only says how to make the fish sauce. If you want to make the traditional peanut sauce that’s usually served with them, it’s super simple! It’s just 2Tbsp crunchy peanut butter, 3 TBSP hoisin sauce & water (if needed). Mix the peanut butter & the hoisin sauce in a microwavable bowl & heat on high for 45 seconds. If needed, add some water to thin it out to a medium sauce consistency (not too thick). NOTE: This makes about 3/8 cup & is usually good for about 4 spring rolls, maybe 2 meal sized servings, or 4 appetizer servings. Serve this warm to room temperature.

I’ll let you folks know how mine turn out when I make them. I’ll need to get a few things for this, so it may be a few days… I hear that the rice paper tears easily if they’re soaked too long…It’ll probably take me several tries to get them looking nice. -WWQ
