Dumplings-Pot Stickers (Pork & Shrimp)

I made these dumplings sometime ago and they were really delicious. Since then, my kids have been craving for more. So last evening, I decided to make some for them. This time though, I made the dumplings using store-bought wrappers. The dumplings turned out great too! If you are keen on making your own wrappers, I do have the recipe over on my older post for these dumplings. Click here to get the recipe. Okay, have a good weekend and Happy 4th of July!

Pork And Shrimp Dumplings-Pot Stickers


200g Ground Pork
100g Prawns, finely chopped
200g Napa Cabbage, finely shredded
1 stalk Scallions, finely minced
80g Chives, finely chopped
20g Ginger, finely minced
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp Sesame Oil
1 1/2 Tbsp Sake or Chinese Cooking Wine
1/2 Tbsp Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Ground White Pepper
1/2 Tbsp Corn Starch
3/4 tsp Sea Salt
1 Packet (50 pcs) Dumpling Wrappers or 2 recipe Homemade Wrappers

2 Stalks Scallions/Green Onions, chopped
4 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Vinegar
1 Tbsp Sesame Oil


Mix the cabbage with 1 tsp of sea salt and let it rest for 10 minutes. Then, drain and squeeze out all the excess water.

Prepare the filling by combining all the above ingredients and marinate for about 30 minutes.

Place 2 to 3 of the filling in the center of dough, fold and shape.

Add a little oil in a hot pan over medium heat. Then place the dumplings in the pan and pour in about 6 Tbsp of water. Cover with a lid and cook for about 5 minutes. Then drizzle a little more oil all over the dumplings, cook until crispy and toasty on the bottom.

Serve the dumplings with the soy sauce mixture and some chopped scallions.
