Recipe by daisygrl64

These are labor intence. But if you have the time it's well worth it. You can use a food processor to ground the shrimp. And use shrimp with no shell/skin. This makes 30 Dumpling. Great for a potluck or party.

Thanks so much for picking me in the adopt of chef contest. I looked at your recipes and there are so MANY I have bookmarked. Made these a few nights ago and they are labor intensive, but DELICIOUS. Made them to serve with some Lo Mein & Eggrolls. You have so many good recipes that I hope to make soon! Italian Mom of 2!
