Home Cooking 101: Tuna Lumpia

Here's a healthy baon option for you: Tuna Lumpia. :)

I do love the pork version, but I try to whip up a fish version everytime there's lumpia wrapper at home. Based from experience, making the tuna lumpia takes a bit more work than pork lumpia, but it is worth it. 




Ingredients:

2 cans tuna
1 onion, chopped
garlic, minced
1 small carrot, grated
1 egg
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
lumpia wrappers

Instructions:

1. Drain tuna. 
2. Once the tuna is drained, mix in onions, garlic, egg, grated carrots, salt, pepper and flour.
3. Wrap the tuna filling in lumpia wrapper
4. Deep-fry, and serve with a dip of your choice. 



For the canned tuna, I prefer using Corned Tuna or Tuna in Vegetable Oil. Just make sure the tuna is properly drained so the lumpia wouldn't be watery. You may also use bangus or any other canned fish. :)

  2. Hmm! This seems really easy to prepare! I thought you used fresh tuna - which would have been more work hehe. Will try this soon :)

  3. We always have lots of unlabeled canned tuna here that came straight from the factory and my mom and I try to cook them in different ways. This makes a nice addition. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I used tuna in oil for this one, but you can use tuna in brine. Just adjust the seasoning. :)

    SM sells really good bangus lumpia. I don't think they have a brand. When I see the packet kasi plastic lang. But it's really good. =)
