Greg Richie's Lemongrass Shrimp Summer Rolls

Here's the recipe for the Lemongrass Shrimp Summer Rolls that chef Greg Richie prepared on Fox35 this morning. Richie will be demonstrating how to make the rolls again Saturday on the Cooking Stage at the Orlando Home Show. Tickets are still available, and I'm still offering them half off: $5 with no restrictions (other discounted tickets restrict you to certain hours). Just go to the Home Show Web site and type SJO where it asks for a promotional code.
