Shrimp and Broccoli Rolls with Peanut Sauce

Yum

With this fresh, light, and quick dinner, who needs take out? Fresh broccoli slaw, cilantro and seasoned cooked shrimp all wrapped up in one tasty package. Dip it in my homemade peanut sauce to elevate the flavor and give your taste buds a treat!

Ingredients:

- 1 1/2 cups packaged broccoli slaw
- 1/4 cup torn cilantro or basil leaves
- 2 Tbs green onions, sliced thin
- hot water
- 4, 8-inch round rice paper sheets
- 10 oz. cooked medium shrimp

Combine slaw, cilantro (or basil) and green onion. Fill a large, shallow dish with hot water an inch full.  Place a rice paper sheet in the bowl and let soak for 15 to 20 seconds. Lay out rice paper sheet and place about one-fourth of the shrimp on half of the sheet, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top shrimp with broccoli slaw mixture. Fold in sides of sheet toward center. Starting with the filled side, start rolling your rice paper tightly, pressing seam to seal. Place, seam side down, on a serving tray or plate and repeat with remaining rice paper sheets. Dip in the homemade peanut sauce recipe below.
