There are a ton of amazing Vietnamese restaurants in New Orleans as well as along the Gulf Coast. Spring rolls are a great way to start off your meal or ordered on their own for a quick snack. Spring rolls come in many variations from tofu and vegetables to grilled or poached shrimp with or without pork. This variation includes both shrimp and pork but you can try any variation you like. Be sure to make the Nuoc Leo or peanut sauce to go with them!
Traditional Vietnamese spring rolls are almost always served with this style peanut sauce. It has a sweet salty element that goes perfectly with the fresh flavors of the spring rolls. I suggest making this sauce in a double batch because it goes quickly. It will last in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
