It is a fact that I have a minor obsession with Shrimp Spring Rolls. While I love the roll itself, I am mostly just looking for a vehicle for that delicious peanut dipping sauce they come with! Sooooooo GOOD. Light, fresh, doesn’t involve cooking….perfect for a hot summer’s day lunch. Never thinking that it would be a feat I could conquer, for months, I toyed with the idea of trying to make my own Shrimp Spring Rolls. If I was able to do this, I would be able to have an endless supply of them, readily available at my whim. It was worth a shot. So I got to work and did my best to recreate a healthier, Weight Watchers Shrimp Spring Roll Recipe that would satisfy my craving, yet still be low in Points. And while my rolling and display skills may not be on par with professional Shrimp Spring Roll Maker Guys, the flavor profile I established was on point!! They were absolutely delicious. And the peanut lime dipping sauce was just as tasty as I hoped and prayed it would be. And just 5 Points for two big spring rolls with sauce! These light, fresh, low calorie Shrimp Spring Rolls make me super happy, and I make them much more often than I care to admit.
