Homemade Shrimp Summer Rolls – Great Light Lunch Option!

‘ve come to the rescue with an awesome lunchtime (or light dinner!) option that’s perfect any day of the week. These fantastic Asian-inspired Shrimp Summer Rolls are a great way to eat healthy, and enjoy a delicious, flavorful lunch!
The recipe for these wonderfully flavorful Shrimp Summer Rolls came from Best Foods. They’re now offering this fabulous Organic Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise that has no eggs, cholesterol, or artificial colors or flavors.
This Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise is mixed in with the shrimp and the rice noodles to create a wonderfully creamy, base along with a bit of a spicy kick for these summer rolls. You can find this Organic Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise at your local Walmart.
What goes in Shrimp Summer Rolls?
Along with the shrimp and noodles, these summer rolls include fresh, crisp vegetables like cucumbers, carrots, onions and cilantro rolled together creating the perfect bite!
The spring roll wrappers hold everything together, and also create a beautiful, translucent way to see the colorful ingredients of the roll.
What shrimp should I use for shrimp summer rolls?
The best shrimp to buy for this recipe is frozen, raw shrimp. Better yet if you can also get peeled & deveined. I don’t recommend buying pre-cooked shrimp, as re-cooking them will make them hard and rubbery.
I’ve found the best place to buy frozen, raw shrimp is Costco. Check out my post for Things I Buy at Costco for Healthy Meals.
How many rolls does this recipe make?
This recipe makes 12 rolls, so with a little preparation, you can have these rolls ready to go in the fridge when lunchtime hits. Pack in individual containers, and you’ll have a fantastic grab-and-go lunch, perfect to take to work.
These are also great when your days get busy, and you want to have a healthy lunch or quick dinner option at the ready.
