#FrannyCooks : Bangus Lumpia (Milkfish Spring Rolls) with Sarangani Bay Bangus

Just like that, the Ber months have officially begun. Slowly. we're starting to take our Christmas decors out from their usual hiding spot, dusting them to bring back their sparkle and soon enough, I'm sure we can start to hear Christmas carols playing all over town again. It will be my twins' 3rd Christmas and I hope I can make it extra special for them.

Anyway, new month, new recipe! Recently, I experimented with a new main ingredient. One that I would always have in my freezer but all I do is to ask our helper to fry it. I'm talking about our National Fish -- Bangus (Milkfish). I still remember learning about this little fact back in grade school. True enough, I think bangus is one of those fish that makes your dining table truly Pinoy. In fact, I had a hard time looking for bangus when I was in Singapore and I would ask my mom to bring me boxes of Rellenong Bangus every time she and Papa would visit. We love boneless bangus as I honestly do not have the patience to carefully pluck out every single bone and boy, bangus has one of the most number of bones as compared to the other fishes in the sea. (haha!) My greatest fear is to accidentally swallow a bangus bone as it's very long, fine and well, quite hard to remove.

Thankfully, we have Sarangani Bay who has the technology to debone our bangus, clean it so it's free of all those unwanted scales, marinate it and vacuum pack it for easier consumption. This is perfect for moms who are always on the go. Just store a couple of packs in your freezer and you can easily just fry or bake your bangus anytime you want to.

However, if you're feeling a bit fancy and would like to take the next step of being the kitchen queen, then here's an easy recipe that you can try. It's kiddie-approved (well, my kids gave their thumbs-up sign yay!) and it's easy to do as well.

Presenting, my Bangus Lumpia (a.k.a. Milkfish Spring Roll)

What you'll need:

1 pack of Sarangani Bay Premium Bangus Boneless Marinated Milkfish

2) In a bowl, mix the shredded bangus, carrots, onion, radish and chili flakes. Add in the mayonnaise and continue to mix.
3) Get a teaspoon and drop this at the lower center of the lumpia wrapper. Roll and seal well with water and cornstarch solution.

4) Deep fry each spring roll / lumpia in very hot oil. Be very careful!
5) Drain well and serve with your choice of dip (ketchup, vinegar or sriracha mayo works). Enjoy!
