Preparation

Step 1

Bring 1-inch of water to a boil in a large skillet. Trim asparagus spears to no longer than 6-inches; add to the boiling water. Partially cover and cook the asparagus until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Drain; refresh under cold water. Cut each spear in half lengthwise. Cut salmon slices into 12 strips, no longer than 6-inches each.

Soak one wrapper at a time in a shallow dish of very hot water until softened, about 30 seconds. Lift out, let excess water drip off and lay on a clean, dry cutting board.

Center a strip of smoked salmon in the bottom third of the wrapper, leaving a 1-inch border on either side. Arrange 4 thick or 6 thin asparagus spear halves, overlapping as necessary, over the salmon. Top the asparagus with 2 avocado slices, 1 tablespoon shredded carrot, and about 2 teaspoons each basil and mint. Fold the wrapper over the filling and roll into a tight cylinder, folding in the sides as you go. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling. Cut each finished roll in half.

To prepare dipping sauce whisk soy sauce, orange juice, lemon juice, mirin, and crushed red pepper in a small serving bowl.

Serve the rolls immediately with the sauce.
