Frequently Asked Questions

Which rice paper wrappers do you use?

I use the Blue Dragon Spring Roll Wrappers which I usually purchase on Amazon.

Prawn and Vegetable Summer Rolls

Prep Time15 minutes
Servings: 12 summer rolls


  • 6 rice paper wrappers
  • 1 packet ready cooked prawns
  • Iceberg lettuce (finely sliced)
  • 1 avocado (finely sliced)
  • 1 red pepper (finely sliced)
  • 1 large carrot (finely sliced)
  • 100 g peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon gluten free soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 2 tablespoons water (add more or less depending on how thick you like your peanut sauce)


  • Prepare all your ingredients. Ensure all of your vegetables are chopped and ready, and fill a large wide bowl with warm water.
  • Carefully place a sheet of rice paper into the warm water and hold for around 10 seconds to soften. Immediately remove from the water and place on a flat work surface. 
  • Fill the rolls by adding prawns, lettuce, avocado, pepper and carrot horizontally along the bottom third of the rice paper wrapper, leaving around 1 inch of open rice paper around the edges (ensure not to overfill your roll).
  • Fold the lower edge of the rice paper up and over the filling. Fold both of the short sides over the filling, and roll up like a burrito. Repeat with the remaining ingredients until you have 6 summer rolls. Cut each summer roll in half and place in a bowl.
  • To make your peanut sauce combine peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, brown sugar, lime juice and crushed garlic. Mix well until combined. Add 2 tablespoons of water (you can add more or less depending on how thick you like your sauce) and mix.
  • Serve the summer rolls with peanut sauce.
