Summer Rolls with Shrimp

When it's hot and you don't want to turn on the oven or stove you are usually left with the choice of salad or sandwiches for dinner. Summer Rolls are great alternative. They are light, relatively easy to prepare, super yummy and also a great option for a starter when you have guests for dinner as you can prepare them ahead and just put them in the middle for everyone to share! Well to be honest you'll have to turn on the stove for 3 minutes or you could also make vegan summer rolls. :-) Here is the recipe for the version with shrimps and an idea for a spicy soy sauce dip. Let me know how they turned out!
