Dumplings With Ginger Dipping Sauce

READY IN: 40mins




  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • In a small bowl, mix the dipping sauce ingredients, stirring until the sugar dissolves; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the pork, scallions, soy sauce, sesame oil, cornstarch, sherry, gingerroot and garlic.
  • Place the wonton skins on a work surface and cover them with a damp towel.
  • Remove the wonton skins 1 at a time and place about 1 teaspoon filling in the center; do no overstuff or the wontons won't seal securely.
  • Moisten the edges of the wontons with water. Bring 2 opposite corners to the center, pinching the points to seal, then bring remaining 2 corners to center, pinching the points to seal.
  • Repeat with the remaining wonton skins and filling.
  • Add the wontons in batches (if you add too many at once they may stick together) to the boiling water. Stir gently with a wooden spoon and bring back to a boil; boil 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer the wontons to a platter.
  • Serve with a dipping sauce.
