Lumpiang Shanghai

 

Lumpiang shanghai or spring roll is one of the easiest recipe to do and is a HIT dish in most of the Filipino gatherings. Aside from it’s being easy to prepare, the ingredients are not expensive and you can make a LOT for a very cheap price. So, it’s really one of the recommended viands to offer to your visitors.

 

Ingredients

1 kl ground pork (or beef)

1 onion, minced

1 head garlic, minced

2 carrots, grated

parsley, chopped

1 tbsp garlic powder

2 eggs

2 tbsp flour

salt and pepper to taste

spring roll wrappers

 

Procedure

  • Separate each spring roll wrapper carefully and avoid tearing. Set aside.
  • Prepare all ingredients and put them in a large bowl or basin.

  • Mix them all until well-blended.

  • Some gets a portion of the mixture and fry it to know if they still need to adjust the taste before wrapping. In my case, I just bring the mixture very close to my nose and smell it. If it smells good, it’s good to go. Weird eh? Do you have your own way to try your mixture? Share it with us.
  • To start wrapping, lay a piece of spring roll wrapper and scoop a tablespoon of the mixture, spread it horizontally about an inch above the bottom of the wrapper.
  • Get the bottom of the wrapper and flip it over the mixture.
  • Fold both sides toward the center, then roll it up.
  • To seal the wrapper, you can either brush it with beaten egg, cornstarch mixture or even just plain water.

  • Repeat the procedure until you finish all the mixture.

That’s it! Deep-fry it and serve right away. You can also store it in plastic containers and put them in your freezer for future consumption. This can be stored for a week.

 

It is one of the best make-ahead dishes for your family or even as “baon” of your kids at school. It’s best served with sweet and sour sauce or sweet and chili sauce… or just with plain ketchup! 🙂

#Recipe of the Day: Leftover Pancake Sandwich

Our family loves pancakes so much! However, sometimes (or most of the times), we overly estimate the quantity of pancakes to cook for everyone’s consumption. So, we tend to have left over pancakes. But we all know that pancakes isn’t good to eat anymore if it’s not hot or newly cooked, right? So here’s one good idea to avoid throwing leftover pancakes.

Recipe of the day:

Crunchy Baked Tilapia

 

We are used to eating deep fried tilapia or grilled tilapia, but have you ever tried baking one that is also crunchy as good as deep fried? You gotta try it! It’s good and less calories!

 

What you’ll need:

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • pepper
  • 2 egg whites
  • tilapia fillets
  • ¼ cup bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup corn meal
  • ½ tsp oregano, finely chopped

 

Let’s get started!

  1. Pre-heat oven for 15 minutes.
  2. In a shallow bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until fluffy and frothy.
  4. Get another bowl, combine bread crumbs, corn meal and oregano (either fresh or dried).
  5. Start breading the tilapia fillets. Dip first in flour (shake excess off), then dip in egg whites, and finally to the bread crumbs mixture.
  6. Spray baking pan with cooking spray/oil. Lay the fillets flat on the pan. Cover with aluminum foil for even baking.
  7. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

 

This dish is best served with steamed rice and atchara (a pickle made from unripe papaya). I’ll share with you how to make an atchara soon! For now, enjoy your meal! 🙂
