4 oz. Rice Noodles, boiled & cooled*

Remove the rice paper wrappers from the packaging and place (a few at a time) into a bowl of hot water. Soak the wrappers until they become soft and pliable (approximately 1 to 2 minutes). Be sure to separate the wrappers as they soak.
Remove the wrappers from the water, allowing any excess water to drain off and place onto a clean work surface.
Set one piece of spinach onto the center of each wrapper. Place two pieces of shrimp onto the wrapper 1/2" above the spinach leaf.
Begin layering equal portions of all the ingredients (as they are listed above) on top of the spinach and shrimp.
Carefully fold the sides of the wrapper inward and over the filling. Gently lift the lower edge of the wrapper up and over the filling. Begin rolling the summer roll as tightly as possible, being very careful not to tear the wrapper.
Arrange the rolls on a platter or individual serving dishes with the dipping sauces.
