Shrimp Scallion Dumpling


  • 1 lb shrimp minced
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 7-8 scallions minced
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp garlic salt

Other Ingredients:

  • ~50 wraps
  • Cup of warm water
  • bamboo steamer
  • parchment paper
  • Large pot


  1. Combine all your ingredients in a large mixing bowl
  2. Using a fork or a spoon, scoop a small dollop into the middle of your wrapper(there should be enough dough around the meat so that you can seal the wrap without any leakage)
  3. Dip your finger in a cup of warm water and moisten all the edges of the wrapper
  4. Take all four corners(or four sides if round) and press together at a peak
  5. There should now be four open slits in the wrap
  6. Press each of those together
  7. Then dab a bit more water on one side of each fold and press the flap down against the meat of the dumpling
  8. It should look a bit like a sharp pear
  9. Boil water in the large pot
  10. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit in your bamboo steamer
  11. Add dumplings to steamer, cover and cook for about 10 minutes
  12. Once the wraps are a bit see through, and tender, remove from the steamer and enjoy!
