Lumpiang Shanghai (Filipino Style)

   Lumpia  is a popular food all over the Philippines. It has many forms and variations because it has different fillings and wrappings. It also gained many nicknames such as:  Lumpiang Shanghai, Lumpiang Togue, Lumpiang Sariwa, Lumpiang Hubad, Lumpiang Ubod, and many more. The best-tasting lumpia for me is the Lumpiang Shanghai. On this recipe I used ground turkey instead of pork and it taste similar. Here I share the recipe,  Happy cooking!

Ground Turkey , Carrots, Egg Roll Wrapper, Salt and Pepper for taste

Tip: Do a taste test before wrapping a large batch of Lumpia by cooking one piece and taste it to see if it’s salty enough or if it needs more salt.

Ingredients :

  • 1 lb. ground pork or turkey
  • 1 cup chopped shrimps (optional)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 3 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 3 dashes of sesame oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • lumpia wrapper
  • vegetable oil, for frying

Cooking Procedures :

  1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix until well blended.
  2. Wrap into thin rolls in lumpia wrapper. Fry in deep hot oil.
  3. Make sure the meat inside the Lumpia is thoroughly cooked before serving. I usually just cut into one to check that the meat is done inside. Make sure you do this on your first batch to give you a good idea of how long you should cook it.
  4. Drain on paper towels. Transfer to serving platter. Serve with your favorite catsup or make your own Sweet and Sour Sauce recipe. Congratulations, you’re done. Enjoy your Lumpia!
