    riffraff's Note:

    I like to steam these before a party and then I reheat them in a skillet with a little water and a lid to serve. I like the bottoms a little brown. These freeze beautifully. The number of dumplings you get will depend on how big you make them. I try to have extra wrappers around just in case.

      I love steamed dumplings, and while making these, the meat mixture smelled fantastic. Flavor wise, they were delicious. However, for me, I just can't handle that much salt. A tablespoon of salt combined with the fish sauce definitely was waaaay too much, and I couldn't stand eating more than two before the salt took me out of the running. I will definitely be making these again, because again, the flavors were fantastic. I just will cut back on the salt next time.

      Riff, these were my first foray into the world of steamed dumplings, and I will return! These were fabulous--so fresh-tasting with the cilantro and not overcooked at all! I used all tofu instead of pork/shrimp, since I don't eat pork, and they were just excellent. I did add just a bit of extra seasoning (more salt and sesame oil especially) since the tofu tastes a little bland on its own. Tasty litty balls of yumminess--LOL. Thanks for recommending this to me!
