Lumpiang Shanghai Recipe

The Lumpiang Shanghai Recipe is one of my family’s favorite recipes especially during important occasions like family gatherings, birthday parties, and fiestas (feasts). Even just a simple and social get-together, you will surely find the Lumpiang Shanghai somewhere in the food table. The Lumpiang Shanghai or Spring Rolls is another popular dish that came from the Chinese. It was originally called lunpia and was brought to the Philippines by local Chinese traders. It is made of ground pork or beef, finely chopped shrimps, minced onions, minced carrots, and several spices wrapped in specially made wrapper called the lumpia wrapper. It is cooked deep-fried and is best served with sweet and sour sauce, or vinegar with garlic sauce. You can experiment with as many dipping sauces as you like but my personal favorite is the mayo-ketchup dip.

For this Lumpiang Shanghai Recipe, we will be doing a different version. Instead of wrapping all the raw ingredients first and frying it, we will do a little better. We will semi-fry all the raw ingredients first before we wrap it with the lumpia wrapper then fry it. How’s that? I like this method because it makes sure that all the ingredients inside the rolls are cooked well before eaten.
