To prepare spring rolls
200g pork tenderloin
32 fresh medium prawns, peel and devein (or reduce half of the quantity if you like to halve the prawn)
½ carrot, shredded
1 cucumber, shredded
A bunch of coriander leaves
A bunch of basil leaves
1 small head butter lettuce leaves
50g dried rice vermicelli, blanched in hot water till soft
Vietnamese rice papers


  1. Bring water and one sprig of spring onions to a boil over medium heat in a saucepan and poach the pork for 10mins or until cooked. Remove and set aside to cool. Slice the pork into thin strips
  2. In the same pot of water, poach the prawns for 1min or until pink or just cooked. Remove and set aside to cool (You can also halve the prawns).
  3. To make the spring roll, briefly dip a rice wrapper in a bowl of water (drinking water) and use a clean cloth wipe off the excess water. Place on a dry surface, place a lettuce leaf onto the wrapper, and top with some pork strips, rice vermicelli, cucumber, carrot and basil leaves. Fold the closest edge of the wrapper over the filling, then fold in the sides and roll up halfway. Place 2 prawns, side by side, along the roll and top with coriander leaves, then continue to roll up tightly to complete the folding. Repeat until all the ingredients are used up.
  4. Arrange the spring rolls on a serving platter and serve with serving bowls of Peanut      Hoisin dipping sauce on the side.

I remember the first time I made this, the spring roll wet and difficult to handle to wrap and got torn out just half way wrapping. Guess my hand wasnt delicate enough.

This is indeed a very refreshing dish! And I haven't had this for a long time too as if I prepare this dish, my children won't eat & I have to cook an extra dish just for them.

The way you wrapped the spring roll is very good coz can see the prawns clearly!

Love love love vietnamese spring rolls. In fact you should probably know by now that I really liek vietnamese cuisine, because it;s always so light, fresh and healthy but with good flavours. It's so wonderful that you are doing lots of viet recipes recently! My good friend who's a viet chef in london will be so in awe :)
