Steamed Dumplings Recipe (虾仁蒸饺)
Make about 20-24 steamed dumplings
1/2 pound ground pork
8-10 medium shrimps (peeled, deveined, and cut into small pieces)
1 stalk scallion (finely chopped)
3 dashes white pepper powder
1 teaspoon Shaoxing wine
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1 inch ginger (grated)
1 pack potsticker/dumpling wrappers
Combine the ground pork, shrimp, chopped scallions, ginger, and all seasonings together. Set aside.
To make dumplings, place a small spoonful of the filling in the center of the wrapper. Dab a little water with your finger and circle around the edge of the skin, and then fold and pleat the dumpling accordingly. Repeat the same for the rest. (Please refer to this video to learn how to fold/pleat dumplings.
Arrange the dumplings in a bamboo steamer (lined with parchment paper at the bottom) and steam for 8-10 minutes. Serve immediately with black vinegar dipping sauce.
