Cook noodles according to package instructions until softened (do not overcook) then drain in a colander and rinse with cold water. Let noodles drain in a colander until ready to assemble. You can also fill a saucepan with water and bring it to a boil, add the noodles, turn off the heat and let them sit in hot water for 5-7 minutes.

Prep veggies – julienne cucumbers and carrots, remove stiff stems on lettuce leaves, coarsely chop cilantro,

Assemble spring rolls One at a Time. Fill a shallow round bowl (wider than your wrappers) with very warm/hot water. Submerge spring roll wrapper for about 10-15 seconds or until softened(depending on the temperature of your water). Place wet spring roll wrapper on a clean and lightly wet cutting board.

Add veggies on one half in this order: lettuce, a generous pinch of noodles, carrots, cucumber, cilantro sprigs.

Add shrimp on the second half, placing the shrimp cut-side up.

Tightly roll up the lettuce side first, tuck in the sides then roll over the shrimp so shrimp are visible on the outside.

To serve – Transfer finished rolls to a serving platter and keep finished spring rolls covered with a damp kitchen towel so they do not dry out. For a prettier presentation, serve cut in half on the diagonal.
