Jollibee Lumpiang Shanghai Recipe: Fried spring rolls, or as we Filipinos like to call it, “lumpiang shanghai”, is a staple on the Filipino dining table—for good reason. It’s packed with flavor, it’s easy to tea, and it’s really hard to screw up in cooking. It’s also a big crowd-pleaser at parties. Place a platter of these bad boys, count to ten, and you’re sure to be left with an empty plate and a bunch of happy guests.
Everyone has their take on it. From mushrooms, tuna, to the classic ground pork-beef mixture, lumpiang shanghai is a versatile finger-food that beginners like myself ought to try making. One of the lumpiang shanghai recipes that are familiar to the Filipino palate, are those varieties served in Jollibee. For this recipe, I’ll be cooking a mix that we’ve all grown up with which hopefully, comes close to a real Jollibee lumpiang shanghai recipe.
Before we get going on the recipe, there are a few things worth to note: 1.) this dish is fun to make with loved ones, so take the opportunity to bond; and 2.) wrapping lumpiang shanghai requires a little bit of a learning curve (it’s as delicate as rolling sushi!).
