Shrimp Dumplings

  • Combine all ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl.

  • Place one tablespoon of filling in the middle of a wonton wrapper.
  • Avoid letting the wonton wrappers become too dry by keeping them covered while preparing.  If you are preparing dumplings for a later cooking time, make sure to keep them wrapped in plastic in the refrigerator until ready for use.
  • Dip a fingertip in a small bowl of water and wet 2 sides of the wrapper.
  • Fold wrapper half and tuck edges with another dot of water to seal.
  • Preheat a non-stick or cast iron fry pan to a medium high heat and then add oil.
  • Place dumplings in hot pan and cook 2-3 minutes until golden brown. 
  • Add 1/2 cup broth or water to the bottom of the fry pan and cover.
  • Cook an additional 2-3 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Remove from pan and serve with Soy Dipping Sauce.

Soy Dipping Sauce

  • Stir all ingredients together in a small mixing bowl until sugar is dissolved.
