I just got back from a vacation in China and found recipes for Home-Style Dim Sum in my Sunset magazine. I can't wait to try them all! These little dumplings are naked because they have no wrapper. You can serve them with soy sauce, panzu, or a dipping sauce.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1In a food processor, whirl 1/4 lb. shrimp until not quite a smooth paste.
- 2Add remaining 1/4 lb. shrimp and pulse to chop coarsely.
- 3Pulse in chives.
- 4Divide mixture into 24 pieces.
- 5Roll each piece into a ball and place in parchment-lined steamers (see How to Steam Dim Sum, below).
- 6Steam dumplings until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
- 7Serve immediately.
- 8How to Steam Dim Sum: Measure your steamer basket and choose a pot with a diameter at least 2 inches wider.
- 9To keep dumplings from sticking, cut a circle of parchment paper 1 inches smaller in diameter than the basket (so steam can flow up around the edges) and fit it inches
- 10Pour enough water into pot to come 1 inches up side and bring to a boil over high heat.
- 11Fill basket with dim sum first, then set it in the pot.
- 12Cover and cook, adding hot water as needed.
