Leveled-Up Lumpia: Flavor-bursting Tuna and Salmon Sashimi Roll Recipe

Tuna and Sashimi rolls with Japanese soy sauce

 

A bowl of greens is a healthy meal, but it’s not always a hearty meal. Good thing, this leveled-up lumpia is loaded with more nutrients and flavor.

Although sashimi is a classic Japanese dish, this salmon and tuna sashimi roll delightfully tastes close to home. As Filipinos, we are known for our love for spring rolls, so you can think of this dish similar to the classic fresh spring rolls or lumpiang sariwa — only with a twist since the tuna and salmon used as fillings are served fresh.

What's more, this tuna and salmon sashimi roll recipe is an upgrade from your usual pork or shrimp-filled lumpiang sariwa. Unlike the original lumpiang sariwa, this recipe is also easier to prepare and absolutely needs no cooking!

Adding to the uniqueness of this healthy meal is the subtle taste of the raw fish; any good quality salmon and tuna would have a mild fishy flavor and a tender texture. There’s also the buttery taste from the avocado while the greens in the roll will give you a crunchy experience altogether. Perfect for any occasion as a snack or a complete meal, you won’t regret trying this tuna and salmon sashimi roll recipe.
