Anyway, below is the post from the other blog.
As I was scouring recipe sites for seafood recipes, I my remember the days when I was still "working". A food provider sold a unique kind of "lumpia" (wrap) that I always had to buy when they catered. I know there's pepper because I see the stalk at the end of the wrap, and I do recall the taste of tuna. So I'm hoping to do some experiment and see if I can replicate the dish.
I would need:
- green finger peppers
- can of spicy tuna
- salt and pepper to taste
- lumpia (spring roll/pastry) wrappers
I'm pretty sure you can conclude how to cook this but let me try it first before I actually recommend it. There might be some ingredients missing but I'll know as I'm cooking. Watch out for a follow up blog and pictures, of course.
Since my Lola and sister ate this with us, I decided to skip the "spicyness".
Initially, I intended:
- a can of spicy tuna
- finger peppers to be split open but not sliced, seeded but pulp intact and won't be washed after seeding
- Used Tuna in brine
- Peppers sliced in half lengthwise and removed seeds (and pulp). Washed again to minimize spicyness
- Added strips of cheese, and
- Cut the peppers when they tend to curve to make is easier to wrap them
I served them with crushed garlic in mayo the first time, and sweet chili sauce the 2nd time. They both tasted great!
