Ingredients

Shrimp Shumai Filling:

Pork Pot Sticker Filling:

Dipping Sauce:

To Cook:

Directions

Special equipment:
a bamboo steamer; a round of perforated steamer parchment paper
  1. For the shrimp shumai filling: Whisk to combine the egg whites and cornstarch in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Add the shrimp to a food processor and pulse into a chunky paste. Transfer the shrimp to a medium bowl and stir in the cornstarch and egg white mixture.
  3. Stir in the garlic, scallions, lemon zest, lemon juice, ginger, soy sauce and toasted sesame oil.
  4. To determine if the filling is seasoned well, make a small patty, about 2 tablespoons. Place a small saute pan over medium-high heat and add the canola oil. Once heated, add the tester patty and cook on both sides until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the pan and place on a paper-towel-lined plate, then taste. Adjust the seasoning of the remaining filling with soy sauce if needed.
  5. For the pork pot sticker filling: Mix to combine the pork, soy sauce, ginger, sambal, garlic, scallions, egg whites, water chestnuts, bell pepper and cilantro in a large bowl.
  6. To determine if the filling is seasoned well, make a small patty, about 2 tablespoons. Place a small saute pan over medium-high heat and add the canola oil. Once heated, add the tester patty and cook on both sides until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the pan and place on a paper-towel-lined plate, then taste. Adjust the seasoning of the remaining filling with soy sauce if needed.
  7. To make the dipping sauce: Combine the rice wine vinegar, fish sauce, sugar and sambal in a container, then cover and shake to combine. Set the dipping sauce aside while you assemble the dumplings.
  8. To cook: Place half of the wonton wrappers on a clean surface and add about 2 teaspoons of the shrimp filling to the center of each wrapper. Brush the edges of the wrapper with water. Fold and pleat as you gather the wrapping around the filling, leaving the top of the filling uncovered. Gently tap the shumai on your work surface, flattening the bottom and allowing it to stand upright, and form into a basket shape.
  9. Place the remaining half of the wonton wrappers on a clean work surface and add about 2 teaspoons of the pork filling to the center of each wrapper. Working one at a time, brush the edges of the wrapper with water and fold over to make a half-moon. Pinch the edges to pleat and close the filling into the center.
  10. Line each tray of a bamboo steamer with a round of perforated steamer parchment paper or the cabbage leaves, if using, and cover with the lid. Bring 1 to 2 inches of water to a boil in a large, wide pan. Set the bamboo steamer over the pot. Continue to add water as needed.
  11. Working in batches, place the shrimp shumai in the steamer and cover with the lid. Steam the shumai until cooked through, 6 to 7 minutes.
  12. Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add the pork pot stickers and pour in 1/4 cup water. Cover the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes, then remove the cover and cook until the remaining water has evaporated and the bottom of the pot stickers are golden and crisp.
  13. Serve the shrimp shumai and the pork pot stickers with the dipping sauce.
