Perfect Shrimp & Pork Lumpia

Shrimp and pork lumpia, a beloved Filipino appetizer, showcases the delightful combination of savory shrimp and seasoned ground pork encased in thin spring roll wrappers. In this version, I wrap seasoned ground pork around the large shrimp, then wrap it in the spring roll wrappers. This retains the shape of the shrimp after it is fried.

  • Make shallow cuts along both the belly and top side of the shrimp. This will prevent it from curling when cooked. You know you have done it correctly if your shrimp are straight and not curved.
  • Take 2 tbsp of the minced pork and wrap it around the shrimp.
  • Take your large spring roll wrappers and cut them in half diagonally to form a 2 large triangles per wrapper.

  • Place your meat wrapped shrimp along the middle of the wrapper.
  • Fold the top corner down towards the shrimp.
  • Fold the edges towards the middle and roll tightly. Seal with eggwash.
  • Wrap once more with the other half of the wrapper. This creates a more secure spring roll, and once fried it will also be crispier.
