My family loves seafood, and this Shrimp Scampi recipe is one of their favorites! It's a really easy recipe to follow, and it tastes fantastic. The sauce is cooked with garlic, lemon, parsley, and some chili flakes to give it the extra kick. Serve up the fresh shrimps and the tasty garlic sauce with some of your favorite pasta for a wonderful and complete meal.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
