Shrimp Scampi Summer Rolls

Shrimp Scampi Summer Rolls

All the flavors of shrimp scampi, wrapped up in a rice paper summer roll! I am obsessed with summer rolls in August. Honestly, I love them year round, but something about making and eating them this time of the year is the best. I think it’s partly because of the no-cook process of rolling them, but also because they can be like a handheld salad or cool refreshing snack.

The inspiration for this recipe

I was trying to think of something fun to put inside these summer rolls when I realized angel hair pasta could replace the typical rice vermicelli tucked in most rolls. That got me thinking of pasta dishes, and I focused on shrimp since it is common in these rolls as well. Of course that quickly led me to shrimp scampi summer rolls!

I love how these came out and the lemon vinaigrette as a dipping sauce really brought all the flavors home! If I do any more entertaining or have to bring an app to a get-together this summer, this will 100% be the what I make.

Cook the shrimp first

Toss the shrimp in some melted butter, then take them out of the pan.

Cook the shrimp with lots of butter

Make the quick shrimp scampi sauce

Garlic, parsley, and wine go into the same pan next, followed by the pasta.

add the pasta

Allow the pasta and the shrimp to fully cool before you roll it up. 3 shrimp down first, then the pasta. Roll it up tight!

Depending on your rice paper, you may need to double wrap. I usually do.

Serving the shrimp scampi summer rolls

Then just slice them up and serve! The vinaigrette is olive oil, red vinegar, lemon, salt, pepper, red pepper, mustard, and lots of garlic.

Twists on shrimp scampi summer rolls

You could do these shrimp scampi summer rolls with rice vermicelli instead of angel hair pasta if you wanted. Then it would also be gluten free and a nice mashup of the two dishes. I thought the angle hair was more fun because it is unexpected.

shrimp and pasta

  • 15 jumbo shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 pound angel hair pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • black pepper
  • crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup white wine


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 or 3 lemons (juice of)
  • crushed red pepper
  • black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic grated
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Roll it

  • 5 to 10 rice paper wrappers


  • Bring well salted pasta water to a boil
  • Melt the butter in a pan and add the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper. Cook about 3-5 minutes until cooked through. Remove the shrimp from the pan and allow to cool in the fridge. Drop the pasta in the water at this point.
  • In the same pan with the shrimpy butter, add the olive oil and garlic and cook 2 minutes. Add in the red and black pepper.
  • Add in the parsley and wine and bring to a simmer. Cook until the pasta is ready, about 5 more min.
  • Add the pasta directly from the pot to the pan and toss with the sauce. Remove from heat and allow to cool 30 minutes in the fridge before using.
  • Mix all the vinaigrette ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. You could also shake it in a mason jar like I did.
  • Depending on the thickness of the wrappers you could use one or two wrappers per roll. Dip the wrapper in water for about a second or two. It might feel like it needs more soaking, but it will continue to soften. Place it on your work surface, and put 3 shrimp down. Top with some pasta and roll it up tightly, folding in the sides half way.
  • Slice the rolls in half before serving with the lemon vinaigrette.
