Easy Steamed Shrimp Dumplings

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

This is an easier albeit much less sophisticated adaptation of Hey Jude's Har Gow recipe (#109191). I wanted something I could make up in the kitchen in our apartment in town, which is tiny and not well equipped. For steaming, I used a rice cooker with a steamer basket.

Made for Fall 09 PAC exactly per the recipe. This is alot of work, but well worth it! I used my two tiered steamer and found that greasing the baskets was not helpful and the dumplings stuck to it, so shredded cabbabe and lined them with that, which worked wonderfully. The cabbage leaves left whole took up too much room in the baskets, though they might have worked better if I had steamed them first. Did I mention I quadrupled the recipe so I would have enough to serve 8? Next time I make these I think I will use a bit larger wonton wrappers as with arthritis it is harder to handle the mini's. For the dipping sauce I used Dumplings With Ginger Dipping Sauce which I always use when making dumplings, egg rolls, or wontons. Thank you for a great recipe have added this to my International Cookbook and my Party Cookbook.
