How to make Simple Spring Rolls?
Roast the sesame seeds in a dry pan till they become hot but not burn. The white will become gold brown, the black are harder to see. Put them on a plate afterwards. Cut the cucumber in half (the length of the rolls) and cut them further in thin slices; the same for both the bell peppers.
Soak the rice paper for a little while in cool water, use the deep plate for that (or use the prescription on the rice paper). Put the soaked rice paper on a towel and put the cucumber, pepper, coriander and shrimps on top of it. Sprinkle some fresh lemon juice over the roll.
Put the sides of the rice paper inside on top of the filling and roll the rice paper tight and put them on a nice plate (or container if you want to take it). Sprinkle the sesame seeds and the last coriander over the rolls as decoration.
For the soya sauce, put some wasabi, sesame oil and soya sauce together and stir. The chili sauce is ready by itself. Put the two sauces into two separate cups.
Serve all together and enjoy!!
