Place the rice noodles in a large bowl of hot water until cooked, about 15 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Fill a large bowl with hot water, and soak the rice paper wrappers one at a time until softened, but still rather firm; about 20 seconds. Place the sheets on a large dish cloth, separate from each other. Place a mint leaf into the centre of each wrapper. Place two prawn halves over the mint leaf, top with a small handful of the noodles, and 5 to 6 beansprouts. Season to taste with fish sauce, and garnish with coriander leaves.
Roll them by folding the bottom of the wrapper over the filling in the centre. Fold in the left and right sides, then roll the entire thing away from you tightly.
these were amazing! it was my first try at anything vietanmese, and i was surprised at how easy these were to make, i found the rice paper at an oriental shop. since i bought the prawns already cooked, there was hardly any cooking to do - loved it! they were so tasty and the mint really added a lot of flavour. thank you for the great recipe. - 08 Jan 2009
