1 lb minced meat (you can use pork,turkey or beef)
1 lb medium shrimp ( peel and devein)
1/2 lb Ricotta Cheese
1 pack round shape wanton skin
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese
1 stalk scallion ( cut fine)
Ingredients For Dipping Sauce:
1/2 cup thin soy sauce
3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp sugar
1 inch ginger (peel and shredder thin)
1:Combine minced meat ,seasoning ,chopped scallion,egg and Parmesan cheese in a medium bowl.Mix well,then add in ricotta cheese on side.Clean and devein shrimp,set in a separate bowl.
Prepare steam with water for steaming.
2:Unwrapped wanton skin from plastic wrap,cover with semi wet paper towel or towel to prevent from drying out while wrapping.
3: Use a wanton skin,lay on your palm,scoop I tsp filling in the center ,then add a shrimp on the filling.Fold the circle in half and moisten the edges with water or egg. Use index finger and thumb to bring the sides together. The smooth edge will conform to the decreased length of the pleated edge. Pinch the pleats together then pinch to seal. Place the dumpling on a floured tray and repeat this with the remaining dumplings.
4:Arrange dumpling separate from each other,don't over lap on a tray or big plate.
5:While the steamer water is rolling boil,use a steamer to steam the dumpling with some cabbage lay at the bottom to prevent the dumpling from sticking.Reduce the heat to medium and steam for 10-15 minutes.Again depend on the size of your steamer.If you have bigger steamer,you need to steam longer.
6:Carefully remove the fragile dumpling from steamer and serve hot or warm with dipping sauce.
7:Mix all dipping sauce in a medium bowl with shredded ginger.Check the seasoning before serve.
No#1: You need minced meat.I used pork with some fats.
No #2: Peel and devein,clean shrimp
No#3: Combine seasoning ,minced meat,egg,scallion with ricotta cheese
No#4: Unwrapped Wanton skin ,then cover with semi wet paper towel to prevent from drying
No #5: Filling ready to wrap No# 6: Arrange wrapped dumpling on large plate. Sorry,I can't show you how I fold the dumpling coz I don't have extra pairs of hands to hold camera.You can just fold the edges together without crimping.It's OK.
Ready to serve with dipping sauce. Another option beside steaming is Pan-fry.
