Chicken and Shrimp Dumplings with Spicy Ginger Dipping Sauce
  • Dumplings
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 25 round wonton wrappers
  • 1/2 pound ground chicken
  • 1/2 pound shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • 2 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger (grated)
  • 3 scallions (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 small bunch cilantro stems
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • Spicy Ginger Dipping Sauce
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ginger (minced)
  • 3 tablespoons hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Bring 1 quart of water and 2 cups of chicken stock to a boil in a medium stockpot. Reduce to a simmer.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, add the chicken, shrimp, garlic, ginger, scallions, soy sauce, sesame oil, cilantro and egg and pulse until fully combined.
  • Brush a wonton wrapper with water. Place 2 teaspoons of the chicken and shrimp mixture into the center of the wrapper. Pinch sides of the wrapper together to form four points. Press the creases in a clockwise fashion to the side of the wonton pouch (the top of the dumpling should be open). Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  • Place the dumplings into a steamer basket, that has been lightly sprayed with nonstick spray, in one layer making sure the edges do not touch, working in batches.
  • Place the steamer basket into the stockpot and cover with a lid. Cook for 12-15 minutes. Gently remove the dumplings to a serving platter along with the dipping sauce.
  • For Spicy Ginger Dipping Sauce: in a medium bowl, add the soy sauce, ginger, hot sauce and lime juice and mix to combine. Serve with the dumplings.
  • Tip: If you can't find the round wonton wrappers, use the square shaped ones. Use a 3-inch biscuit cutter to cut into a round shape. Or, fold the square a few times to make a triangle, and then cut off the edges to make a circle!
