Shrimp Dumplings #dinner #chinese

This has been on my culinary bucket list for 1 1/2 years. The filling takes just minutes to put together and wrapping up the dumplings can be so therapeutic. I even did it with my 5-year old niece and nephew and we had a blast! And then we devoured the crap out of it. Actually, I think I devoured the crap out of it. The kids didn’t really eat it, which just means there was more for me!

The dumplings “stuck” to the pan, giving them a crisp crust on the bottom. I love dumplings and they are one of the foods that I could eat for breakfast, lunch, and, dinner. And then as a midnight snack.

These are very easy to make, with a short list of ingredients. It might take you a few tries to get the dumpling folds right, but once fried up and dipped in sauce, you’ll feel confident sitting down to a plate of steaming hot homemade dumplings, no matter when you want to eat them.

Homemade dumplings are easier to make than you think, and you can completely customize your fillings!

  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled, deveined and diced
  • 8 ounces ground pork
  • 1 cup shredded green cabbage
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon mirin
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 36 2-inch won ton wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Soy sauce, for serving

  1. In a large bowl, combine shrimp, pork, cabbage, green onions, ginger, sesame oil, mirin, salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. To assemble the dumplings, place wrappers on a work surface. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the shrimp mixture into the center of each wrapper. Using your finger, rub the edges of the wrappers with water. Fold the dough over the filling to create a half-moon shape, pinching the edges to seal.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add dumplings in a single layer and cook until golden and crisp, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  4. Serve immediately with soy sauce, if desired.
