Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare Chimichurri Sauce. In a medium bowl combine the sauce, shrimp, lettuce, carrots, cilantro, mint, and green onions. Let stand for 15 to 30 minutes to allow shrimp and vegetables to soften slightly and absorb flavors from the sauce, stirring occasionally.

  • To assemble, pour warm water into a pie plate. Carefully dip a rice paper into the water; transfer to a clean round dinner plate. Let stand for several seconds to soften. Place a parsley sprig in the center of the paper. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the shrimp mixture just below the center. Arrange some of the vermicelli noodles across mixture. Tightly roll up rice paper from the bottom, tucking in sides as you roll.
