Recipe by MarraMamba

These are a combination of shrimp and chicken or beef(your preference) If you don't want to make them look like little bags, then feel free to just fold them as you would a potsticker.

These little dumplings were really good! I used shrimp only (no chicken) but otherwise made as specified. I have to admit I was a little intimidated at first but this recipe was really easy and the dumplings turned out great! Thanks for sharing!
