Ingredients

Chili Oil:
Saffron-Coconut Milk Sauce:

Directions

Special equipment: A small food processor

Pull 1 wrapper off the stack and place on a flat work surface. Lay 1 cilantro leaf in the center of the wrapper, followed by 1 shrimp curled into a circle. Drizzle 1/8 teaspoon of the Chili Oil on top of the shrimp.

Egg wash with a pastry brush around the top edge of the wrapper. Fold in half, firmly pressing the edges together. Place the dumplings on a baking sheet dusted with semolina.

Fill a wok with 2 cups of vegetable oil and bring oil to 350 degrees F. Cook the dumplings (3 or 4 at a time) for about 2 minutes, turning after 1 minute or when golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper.

Serve warm with mango slices and Saffron-Coconut Milk Sauce, along with Chili Oil on the side.

Chili Oil:

Pulse the chiles, sambal and grapeseed oil in the food processor. Transfer to a squeeze bottle. Allow the flavors to infuse for at least 30 minutes prior to serving.

Serve at room temperature.

Saffron-Coconut Milk Sauce:

Place the saffron in the white wine and set aside for 20 to 30 minutes. Place the coconut milk and heavy cream in a small pot and over medium heat cook down by half. Whisk in the saffron wine, lemon juice, kosher salt, and cayenne pepper.

Serve the sauce warm.

Cook's Note
