You can buy the rice paper spring roll wrappers in Asian shops. These rolls are not fried and taste best dipped in the hoisin peanut sauce. Delicious for a summer party.
I just made these for a party and they were a hit. I made some with shrimp (used the frozen stuff (no pork-too much work). I also made some with thai flavored tofu for the vegetarians. Added slices of avocado, cucumber and carrot. Used the sauce listed here and offered sweet/sour sauce. I used chunky peanut butter and it worked well. - 29 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yes, this may not be a "thai" recipe, but almost every thai restaurant that I have ever been to has had these rolls on the menu. They call them "thai basil rolls". Vietnamese or Thai, these roll are delicious. The sauce is fantastic. I have made these when I had no pork, just baby shrimp and have even made them vegetarian. Excellent. They save fairly well if put into a container with some damp paper towels. - 06 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a Vietnamese NOT a Thai dish. Please make sure you give proper credit. - 17 Mar 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
