Procedure:
  1. Prepare pickled vegetables one day ahead or a few hours ahead. Place water, vinegar, citrus, and sugar in a mason jar. Shake vigorously until sugar dissolves. Put julienned carrots and zucchini. Seal tightly and refrigerate.
  2. Using a blender, blitz hoisin, Kikkoman soy sauce, muscovado sugar, sesame oil, and garlic. Add the peanut butter gradually. Add water in a long, thin stream until the sauce is emulsified. Adjust the taste. Serve sauce with lime wedges, Sriracha, and crushed peanuts.
  3. Boil water in a medium-sized pot. Reduce to simmer. Using a spider strainer, quickly blanch the shrimp in simmering water for 20-30 seconds until just translucent. Dunk shrimp immediately in ice water bath and drain. Using the same pot, blanch bean sprouts for 15-20 seconds until al dente. Dunk in ice water bath and drain.
  4. Dip rice paper in warm water. Lay a piece of rice paper over clean kitchen towel and top with butter lettuce, 3 pieces basil leaves, bean sprouts, 3 pieces mint leaves, 3 pieces of shrimp, 3 pieces of cilantro, pickled carrots and cucumbers, and 1 piece of spring onion
