Recipe for pork and prawn cold rolls

Serves: 6

  • 250 g pork loin, cut in thin slices
  • 250 g cooked tiger prawns, shelled
  • 1 packet of rice paper
  • 60 g rice vermicelli noodles, boiled and drained
  • 4 sprigs coriander leaves, washed well
  • 1 handful fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • Cook the dried vermicelli noodles to packet instructions. Drain and cool.
  • To assemble the rolls, fill a large bowl with lukewarm water and dip 1 whole sheet of rice paper in the water until it softens, then lay flat on a plate. In the middle of the rice paper, place 3 pieces of prawn in a horizontal line approximately 4 cm from the top. Below the prawns add shredded iceberg lettuce, pork, mint and vermicelli noodles.
  • To form the roll, first fold the sides into the centre over the filling, then the bottom of the rice paper up and over. Roll from the bottom to the top to form a tight roll.
  • Serve 2 rolls per person.

Tip: best served with peanut dipping sauce.
