To begin with place the cooked prawns and the Chinese flavoring in a bowl and mix well leave for 5 minutes to marinate, then make sure you have all of your prepared veg ready for assembling the summer rolls.

To assemble the rolls, place a sheet of the rice paper in shallow bowl of lukewarm water until it has just softened. take the sheet carefully out of the water place either on a silicone matt (this is what I used) or a tea-towel covered board. Place some of the vegetable filling horizontally in the middle of the rice sheet and top with some of the coriander leaves, add the prawns and place a little gem leaf on top of it all. Fold the edge furthest away from you over the filling, roll the sheet to enclose the filling the fold the sides in and complete rolling the summer roll.

Repeat this process for the rest of the rice sheets and filling. Once you have completed all of your rolls place of a plate in the fridge whilst you make the peanut satay dipping sauce.
