2. Prepare all vegetables: slice carrot and cucumber into thin strips, chop cabbage and Gather all your filling ingredients on a large plate.

3. Cook vermicelli noodles in boiling water, for just a few minutes, according to package instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.

4. Cook the shrimp in boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes. Transfer to ice water, pat-try and cut in half length-wise. Remove tails (optional).
