  Bring one large pot and one medium-size pot of water to a boil. Drop
  the snow peas into the medium-size pot and cook for about 10 seconds
  (they will turn bright green). Remove them from the pot with a
  slotted spoon and rinse under cold water.
  When the water in the medium-size pot has returned to a boil, add the
  shrimp and cook for 2 minutes, or until opaque. Drain, and rinse
  shrimp under cold water. Set aside.
  Add the rice noodles to the large pot of boiling water. Boil for 4-5
  minutes, drain, and rinse under cold water.
  In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, shallot, lime juice, fish
  sauce, 1/2 cup water, sugar, and pepper flakes until the sugar is
  dissolved. Divide the dressing into four small bowls.
  Pile the lettuce leaf "cups" in the center of a large platter.
  Surround the lettuce with separate mounds of carrot, bean sprouts,
  cucumber, scallion, mint. cilantro, snow peas, noodles, and shrimp.
  Give each person a plate upon which to put a lettuce leaf cup. Fill
  each lettuce cup with a tiny bit of ingredient, drizzle with the
  dressing, and roll up in the shape of a cylinder.
