These shrimp pot stickers are definitely better than store bought ones. Crunchy bottom and juicy filling. They're easy to make with only a few basic ingredients. Dip them in the homemade sauce, super delicious!
15dumpling wrappers(I'm using frozen store-bought ones that I thawed)
¼cuphot water(60 ml)
Separate 6 shrimps and cut them in chunks. Place in a bowl.
Using a cleaver, minced the rest of the shrimp into a paste. Add into the bowl together with the rest of the filling ingredients. Mix well.
The Dipping Sauce
Add everything together into a bowl. Set aside.
Take 1 dumpling wrapper and place it on your palm. Spray with some water. Place around 1 heap tsp of filling on the center and fold the wrapper together, pleat and pinch to seal.
Place on a baking tray with baking sheet. Continue with the rest.
Note: 1. Watch the video above to see in more details on how to fold the pot stickers.2. Cover the both wrappers and filled pot stickers with damp cloth to prevent from drying.
Heat a pan on medium heat with some oil. Once hot, place the raw pot stickers in. Continue cooking for a few minutes until the bottom of pot stickers start to turn golden brown.
Add the hot water and immediately cover the pan with a lid. Leave to cook until the water evaporates and the bottom of pot stickers are golden brown.
Note:1. If the bottom of pot stickers are still not golden brown when all water has evaporated, simply continue cooking for a few minutes more without the lid.2. I would recommend using a non-stick pan.3. Read my tips on how to get it right in the post above.
How To Serve
Serve pot stickers immediately together with the dipping sauce. They are the best when they're hot.
When they're cold, the skin tends to get a bit hard and chewy.
