Recipe for Crispy Pork and Shrimp Lumpia
For 5-8 servings
- ½ lb ground pork
- ½ lb shrimp, diced
- ½ medium onion, chopped
- ¼ c cabbage, chopped
- ¼ c carrots, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp fish sauce
- 1 c cooking oil for frying
- spring roll wrappers
- sweet chili sauce for dipping
- salt and pepper to taste
Step by step
In a large bowl, add the ground pork, diced shrimp, chopped vegetables, fish sauce, and salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly until all the ingredients are well combined.
Take 1 wrapper and lay it flat as a diamond shape facing you. Scoop ~2 tbsp of filling and spread it out horizontally across the wrapper, leaving about 1½ inches of room from each side corner.
Fold the lumpia: tightly roll the bottom of the wrapper over the filling, then fold the two side corners in. Continue rolling the lumpia tightly upward until you reach the top corner. Dab a drop of water to the top corner so it becomes sticky, and then roll it all the way up. Repeat steps 2-3 for the rest of the filling.
Heat 1 inch of frying oil in a deep saucepan, and fry the lumpia until golden brown, turning every few minutes to evenly fry each side (approximately 4 minutes total.) Place fried lumpia onto a paper-towel-lined bowl to drain excess oil.
Serve hot with your choice of dipping sauce!
