AMW Cooks: Shrimp Lumpia

 "Lumpia" or fried spring rolls has always been my favorite dish even when I was younger!  As much as I cook this a lot, they always turn out differently because I never measure!  I always joke around that my dishes depend on the mood of the cook! 

Anyone can relate?

If you check out my AMW Recipes, you'll notice how much of a "meat" person we are!  Well, technically, we're not just carnivores, we love our veggies and seafood, but I am allergic to most seafood that's the reason why you don't see me cook them.

BUT, there are days I give myself a break!  I ordered a kilo of fresh (still moving) shrimps and decided to trick my family (and my allergies)!  :P


  • Fresh shrimps
  • Ground Pork
  • Onion and Garlic
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 egg
  • Chopped carrots


  • Boil the shrimps and peel off shell.  Set aside.

  •  Combine, in a separate bowl, ground pork, chopped shrimps (cooked), onions, garlic, carrots, salt, pepper mixing together with 1 egg.

  • Please don't judge my wrapping skills!  I used to be good at it, but since having a toddler beside me watching me roll and wrap, I can't seem to make them all even!  LOL
  • Place a spoonful of the shrimp and pork filling, roll the wrapper tightly and seal the edges with egg white or cornstarch slurry.

  • Heat the oil in pan and fry them one side at a time.

I like to slice the Shrimp Lumpia into bite size pieces and "oven bake" them 5 minutes before dinner!

Have you tried different fillings for the usual Lumpiang Shanghai dish?
Any other "filling" recommendations?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!


  1. I love shrimp lumpia! Although I like mine with lots of veggies. Too bad that I am allergic to shrimp. I can't indulge that much.These look yummy.
