I really like the flavor combination for this potsticker, hope you do as well. If you can't find jiaotze wrappers at your Asian section, wonton wrappers will work

These were very good, if a bit labour intensive. I really like the combination of things in the filling. Very yummy. I guessed at how much boiling water to use for the dough and ended up using about 5 kitchen spoons full. There was a fair bit too much filling, next time I would use maybe half the amount of bamboo shoots. Thanks for posting this, we enjoyed it very much.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop the shrimp; combine all the ingredients for the filling.
  2. Lay out 6 dough circles, place a spoonful of filling on each side, lightly moisten the edges; fold in half, pinch the edges together well to seal securely.
  3. Place onto a plate. Cover with a cloth (the dough dries out quickly) and repeat the procedure with the remaining dough circles.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a skillet over high heat; reduce the heat to medium and add the dumplings.
  5. Pan fry until the bottoms become crisp and brown. Add 125 ml (1/2 cup) water. cover and let simmer about 6 minutes, until the liquid has completely evaporated.
  6. transfer to a plate with the "stuck" side showing. Serve warm with the sauce on the side.
