Chef Tse's Salad Rolls

 

Salad Rolls

From the kitchen of Chez Tse

 

Serves 4

 

12 cooked shrimp, sliced in half

2 teaspoons canola oil

16 skiitake mushrooms, sliced

8 spring roll wrappers, also called rice paper wrappers

24 mint leaves

1 large carrot, cut into ribbons with a peeler

1 medium cucumber, cut into matchstick sized strips

1 cup bean sprouts

Salt and pepper

 

Heat a medium stainless steel skillet over medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons oil and when hot, add mushrooms. Cook until mushrooms begin to brown, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper if desired.

 

Dip one spring roll wrappers in warm water until pliable, about 15 seconds. Lay on a flat surface like a cutting board and blot lightly with a paper towel. Let wrapper stand another 15 seconds. Place 3 mint leaves on the lower third of wrapper. Top with 3 shrimp halves, and an eighth of the mushrooms, carrot, cucumber and bean sprouts. Like you’re making a burrito, fold bottom of wrapper up over fillings. Fold in sides and then tightly roll up. Place on a plate and repeat with remaining wrappers and filling. Serve with spicy peanut sauce.
