Directions

  1. Bring a medium stockpot of lightly salted water to a low boil. Cook shrimp 2 to 3 minutes, or until opaque. Drain, allow to cool slightly, and pat dry with paper towel. Peel, devein, and slice in half.
  2. Bring another stockpot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pork at a low boil for approximately 10 minutes, to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Allow to cool, and slice into thin strips.
  3. Again, bring a stockpot of water to a boil. Cook noodles until tender, stirring occasionally, approximately 7 to 8 minutes. Strain, and rinse to prevent sticking.
  4. Fill a medium bowl with warm water. Dip each wrapper in water for about 30 seconds until soft and flexible. Lay wrapper on a flat surface, and place 2 basil leaves in center, side by side, about 2 inches from edge of wrapper. Lay 4 to 5 shrimp halves on basil, followed by a small amount of pork, then a small amount of noodles. Sprinkle with cilantro, mint, and top with bean sprouts. Starting at one end, roll the wrapper over once, fold both sides in toward center, and continue rolling as tightly as possible without tearing. The end result should be a roll approximately 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick.
  5. Warm hoisin sauce, peanut butter, and water in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, and immediately remove from heat. Garnish sauce with chopped peanuts, if desired, and serve with rolls for dipping.

Yes, this may not be a "thai" recipe, but almost every thai restaurant that I have ever been to has had these rolls on the menu. They call them "thai basil rolls". Vietnamese or Thai, these roll are delicious. The sauce is fantastic. I have made these when I had no pork, just baby shrimp and have even made them vegetarian. Excellent. They save fairly well if put into a container with some damp paper towels.

I just made these for a party and they were a hit. I made some with shrimp (used the frozen stuff (no pork-too much work). I also made some with thai flavored tofu for the vegetarians. Added slices of avocado, cucumber and carrot. Used the sauce listed here and offered sweet/sour sauce. I used chunky peanut butter and it worked well.

This is a Vietnamese NOT a Thai dish. Please make sure you give proper credit.
