Shrimp & Pork Shu Mai

Prep
Cook
Serves 6people
Ingredients
2
tbsp soy sauce
2
tbsp sherry wine
1
tbsp sesame oil
1
tbsp freshly grated ginger
1
inch piece lemongrass
4
garlic cloves, chopped
2
tsp sugar
2
tsp Chinese 5 Spice powder
1/2
tsp kosher salt
1/4
tsp white pepper
1
lb ground pork
1
lb fresh shrimp, separated
1
cup water chestnuts
4-5
chopped green onions
1
package wonton wrappers
Directions
1.
Place soy sauce, sherry wine, sesame oil, ginger, lemongrass, garlic, sugar, Chinese 5 Spice powder, salt and white pepper in a food processor and pulse several times until ground and well combined.
2.
Using a spatula scrape down sides of bowl and add the ground pork and half of the shrimp. Process until a smooth paste forms. Scoop the mixture into a mixing bowl and using a spatula fold in remaining shrimp that has been rough chopped and the chopped water chestnuts and green onions.
3.
Place a 2 tablespoon scoop of the mixture into the center of a wonton wrapper and wet the edges with your finger with water. With your hands gather the sides of the wrapper up and around the filling, letting the wrapper pleat, squeezing the wrapper gently to seal and tap the dumpling to flatten the bottom so that it can sit upright. The top will be open. Repeat until all the filling is used. This should make about 30 dumplings. I place these on tray sprinkled with cornstarch to help them from sticking. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to firm up and make sure the wet wrapper pleats seal well and keep their shape.
4.
Fill your wok with 2 cups water. Set a bamboo steamer over wok lined with a circular cut piece of parchment paper. Bring to a boil and place your Shu Mai in bamboo steamer about a half an inch apart. Cover with lid and steam until filling is cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Serve immediately with dipping sauce.
