Bring a pot of water to boil. Ready an Ice bath for the shrimp.
Peel and de-vein our little shrimp friends.
Poach the shrimp for about 6-10 minutes depending on the size of the shrimp, do not overcook the meat or thet will turn rubbery. Now shock them in the ice water.
Slice the shrimp thin and set aside.
Cook vermicelli noodles in simmering water, they only take a minute!
Strain them and run cool water under them to speed the cool down process and avoid over cooking.
Chop herbs leaving large identifiable pieces and toss together with the bean sprouts and carrots.
Now we have our noodles, thin sliced shrimp, and herb mixture
Quickly soak the rice paper in warm water for 5 seconds
Fill generously with noodles and herbs. Add a couple slice of shrimp and roll tight
Roll folding the bottom flap up, cover all the ingredients and pull back gently tucking tightly.
