This is my last #SundaySupper for a few weeks. With us going on vacation, and missing out on the fun Twitter chat, I am taking a break. While we are gone, my brother is house-sitting for us. He recently moved to the area, and isn’t quite settled yet. Lucky for him, I have a stash of these pot stickers in the freezer! Today is going to be a great #SundaySupper, so I am really glad I got to participate.
If you are blogger, I am sure you know Jaden from Steamy Kitchen. If you aren’t a blogger, she is one you might want to get to know. She has an amazing site with easy, healthy, Asian recipes. She has also put together a cookbook that gives the home cook quick easy meals, that are healthy and delicious. From the #SundaySupper team 20 people received copies of her new book; Steamy Kitchen Healthy Asian Favorites, and are sharing a recipe from the book. The rest of us picked a recipe from her site to try.
Obviously I picked Pan Fried Potstickers. There used to be a brand of frozen potstickers I enjoyed, but I haven’t been able to find them in years. When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. The potstickers definitely did not disappoint. The filling was so full of flavor, and the dipping sauce was a great compliment. They were a little tedious to fill, but really the meal came together very quickly. My super picky 7 year old even liked them, and that is saying a lot! I did not cook all of the potstickers, so I froze the uncooked ones for later. I put them on a baking sheet for an hour until frozen, and then transferred to a freezer bag. It will make a quick weeknight meal, if my brother doesn’t find them first 🙂
- 1 package of frozen dumpling skins , defrosted
- 12 oz raw shrimp , peeled and deveined.
- 3 green onions , roughly chopped
- 1 can (5oz) bamboo shoots, drained
- 1/2 pound ground pork
- 2 Tbls soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 Tbls cornstarch
- 1 tsp fresh ginger , grated
- 1 Tbls rice wine (or sherry)
- 1 Tbls cornstarch
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp chili garlic sauce
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp rice wine vinegar
Combine shrimp, bamboo shoots, and green onions in a food processor. Pulse a few times, until the shrimp is coarsely chopped.
In a large bowl mix together the shrimp mixture with the pork, soy sauce, salt, cornstarch, ginger, and rice wine. Mix until well combined.
In a small bowl dissolve the cornstarch in the water.
Spoon about 1 tsp of filling into the center of each dumpling skin. Brush a little bit of the slurry around the edges of the dumpling. Fold over, and press to seal. Place the dumpling on a baking sheet, so that the bottom is flat. Continue with the rest of the filling. Cover the dumplings with a damp towel or plastic wrap so they don't dry out.
To prepare dipping sauce, mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside until ready to serve.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add 1 Tbls canola oil, heat until very hot, but not smoking. You will have to cook the dumplings in batches. Place 8-10 dumplings in the pan, so that they are not touching. Cook for 1 minute, check the bottom to see they are getting golden brown. Pour in 1/4 cup of water, cover immediately, and reduce heat to medium. Let cook for 3 minutes. Remove lid, and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until all of the water has cooked off. Remove from pan, and repeat with the remaining dumplings.
Serve with the prepared dipping sauce.
