Shrimp Rolls
Dip individual rice paper wraps in warm water on a small plate for a few seconds until pliable.
Work with only one at a time.
Lay a rice paper wrap flat on a second plate.
Place 2-3 shrimp pieces in the centre.
Top with some leaves of each herb, then cucumber, and carrot.
Top with torn lettuce leaves.

Fold bottom of rice paper over filling, then fold in ends and roll.

The bento can be completed with mango or other fruit and vegetables. Because this bento contains shrimp I pack portable ice packs in the carrying bag.
