One of my favorite dish at Sentro 1771 is Fresh Smoked Fish Spring Rolls. I am delighted that Vicky-Rose Pacheco from Sentro shared this recipe of fresh lumpia made of tinapang bangus, salted egg, mustasa, onions and tomato during a demo at the Maya Kitchen. It is the smoked tinapa that gives the tasty flavor of this all-time favorite lumpia. You will find out it is easy to prepare too. These spring rolls add a nice touch to any cocktail menu.

2 pcs mustasa leaves, washed & trimmed
100 grams bangus tinapa flakes
15 grams tomato strips, fleshed out

1. Prepare a wide a bowl and pour in a little water. Take a piece of rice paper wrapper and moisten in the bowl. Lay on a clean board. Do the same with the other one.
