I love cooking and trying new recipes... and of course food photography. I wanted to combine my two favorite things in a blog post! So once a week I will share with you a new recipe.
This weeks recipe - Shrimp Dumplings. These are so easy to make, and SO delicious. Don't like shrimp? You can easy change out the meat or just use veggies in your dumplings. I have included a recipe print out below.
- 1 lb shrimp, peeled, deveined & diced
- 8 oz ground pork
- 1 cup shredded green cabbage
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- salt & ground black pepper, to taste
- 36 2-inch won ton wrappers
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
- Soy sauce, for serving
Prep Time : 20 mins // Cook Time : 5 mins// Makes about 30-36 dumplings
In a large bowl, combine shrimp, pork, cabbage, green onions, ginger, sesame oil, salt and pepper.
To assemble the dumplings, place wrappers on a work surface. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the shrimp mixture into the center of each wrapper. Using your finger, rub the edges of the wrappers with water. Fold the dough over the filling to create a half-moon shape, pinching the edges to seal.
Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add dumplings in a single layer and cook until golden and crisp, about 2-3 minutes per side.
Serve immediately with soy sauce, if desired.
