- Place 3 shrimp halves, cut-side up, near the center of the wrapper, in a straight line. Place a lettuce leaf to the side of the shrimp.
- Top lettuce with basil, mint and cilantro leaves. Sprinkle with shredded carrots. Add cucumber slices. Drizzle with a little of the onion mixture.
- Add rice noodles, looping them to fit over the ingredients.
- Fold opposite top and bottom sides together in center. Roll up tightly starting with the lettuce side. Pinch and tuck the wrap as you roll, ending with the shrimp showing through the wrap at the top.
- Wrap with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator.
