Shrimp & Shiitake Dumplings – Dumplings med Räkor och Shiitake fyllning


Yesterday it was time for dumplings again, and I must say that it went much better than my previous attempts (here and here). These dumplings were made with two different fillings, Shiitake mushroom, garlic and scallion, and shrimp, scallions and peanuts. I steamed these in two ways, some of them in a real steamer (easiest) the other one’s I put on a spatula and held it over boiling water with a lid on… Both ways worked, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t have a steamer :). The past times I’ve made dumplings I’ve made them as small bags, but this time I folded the dough across, into a triangle, and then folded the other corners in and tightened, so that they became squares (you can see what they looked like from the pictures). All in all a very successful dinner.
