These Weight Watchers Shrimp Summer Rolls are perfect for the warm weather months. I love filling and delicious Weight Watchers recipes that are just plain guilt free!
WHAT IS A SUMMER ROLL?
My first experience with a summer roll was a few years ago when a coworker made a whole platter and brought them to work to share. WOW is all I can say.
First off they are so pretty…secondly they are packed with nutritious ingredients!
A summer roll is basically a fresh spring roll. They are not fried but eaten fresh.
The wrapper is a rice paper wrapper. These are typically stuffed with fresh veggies, a protein of some kind and sometimes even noodles. This WW recipe doesn't have noodles to help keep the points down.
WEIGHT WATCHERS FREESTYLE POINTS FOR A SHRIMP SUMMER ROLL
This recipe is ultra healthy and is only 1 Freestyle SmartPoint per roll. This is based on using rice paper wrappers that are 1 point each. The rest of the ingredients are zero point foods.
It is easy to use different veggies based on what you have on hand or what your preferences are.
The key is to be careful about dipping sauces. Be sure to count the points if you dip these Weight Watchers Shrimp Summer Rolls in any kind of sauce.
INGREDIENTS FOR WW SHRIMP SUMMER ROLLS
If you keep fresh veggies on hand you will probably have a lot of these ingredients on hand in your fridge. I always like to keep shrimp in the freezer because they cook up so quickly and make a great meal.
- Rice Paper Wrappers

HOW TO MAKE WEIGHT WATCHERS SHRIMP SUMMER ROLLS
Once you get the hang of working with rice paper wrappers this will be a breeze for you! These shrimp summer rolls are so great for lunches!
STEP ONE: PREPARE VEGGIES
Start off by getting the veggies ready to go.
Shred the carrot.
Peel the cucumber and then cut into tiny spears.
Cut the yellow bell pepper into thin strips.
STEP TWO: PREPARE RICE PAPER
Take a large bowl and fill it with warm water.
Submerge a single sheet of rice paper in the water and take it out immediately. Place the rice paper on a flat surface.
STEP THREE: FILL THE SUMMER ROLL
Start filling the summer roll by placing 3 cooked shrimp side by side. Place them a little below the middle of the rice paper.
Stack your veggies into a pile next to the rice paper. When they are stacked place them on top of the shrimp.
STEP FOUR: WRAP IT UP
The rice paper will be sticky and can tear easily.
Carefully fold the bottom of the rice paper up and over the shrimp and veggie pile. Wrap it tightly but try not to tear it!
Fold the right and left ends in and then finish rolling it up.
As soon as it is rolled up wrap the summer roll in plastic wrap and keep in the refrigerator. This will keep the rice paper from drying out.
Serve with your choice of dipping sauces!
