8 rice paper wrappers*
1 large bowl of very warm water
1/4 cup red pickled ginger, julienne*
1 1/2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds or black sesame seeds
1/2 pound cooked medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
1/2 cup cilantro microgreens or coarsely chopped tender young cilantro
1/4 cup mint leaves (optional)
2 1/2 cups mixed mild microgreens: tat-soi, mizuna, beets, and chard
Nuoc Cham (recipe follows)

1. Immerse one wrapper in the water for 20 seconds or until it becomes limp, then carefully transfer it to a plate. Soak another wrapper while you fill the first one.



2. Layer some of each ingredient through the greens down the center of the wrapper.
