(Vietnamese 'fresh' rolls)
A gỏi cuốn, summer roll, Vietnamese salad roll, or fresh roll is a vietnamese dish consisting of meat/fish with fresh herbs and vermicelli wrapped in Vietnamese bánh tráng (rice paper). They are served at room temperature, and are not deep fried.
Grill you meat, fish, seafood. you can use anything you like.
chicken, beef, pork, shrimps, scallops. Whatever u like.
|Some grilled pork, seasonged with 'red pork' seasoning.|
very tastey in this dish!
|Some grilled shrimps|
Also make sure you use fresh herbs and vegetables,
since you'll eat them raw its very nice if the herbs are superfresh!
I always use Koriander, Thai basil, and Mint. Some cucumber and beansprouts
and chopped onions.
|Selection of fresh herbs. Also chopped red chili's are delicious to use with the rolls|
|Onions and beansprouts|
Cook some rice vermicelli/Glass noodles.
Drain them and sprink a little peanut oil on the noodles.
Also prepare some dipping sauce,
i always make two sauces
(Mix together in a blender, slowly let it boil)
300 Ml water
Juice of 2 lemons
9 tablespoons of fishsauce
7 tablespoons of sugar
6 red chili's
If all the herbs are washed and ready, the noodles are cooked and done, and the meat/fish is grilled
(Note: you can also use as gourmet, and grill the meat in a small grill while eating)
Its time to assemble the rolls and enjoy the food.
