Chinese Dimsum Shao Mai (燒賣) Recipe 1

This is a famous Cantonese Chinese snack, called 燒賣. Its found in virtually all chinese restaurants in south east asia. My version is different from the restaurant's chefs that i use ready made wanton wrappers to make. Considered as one of the top 3 famous dimsum, this is the easiest of the 3. The other 2 being the Prawn Dumpling (蝦餃) and Char Siew Bao (叉燒飽)


(Makes about 8 to 10)

150g of mince meat
150g of prawns 
1 pack of wanton wrappers
1 spring onion
1 teaspoon salt
Half tsp sesame oil
*Optional - for added crunch, chop up 2 waterchestnut into small cubes and mix into the meat/prawns paste after blending

1. Use a food processor to blend all of the ingredients, less wanton wrappers
2. Put the filling use a teaspoon into the wanton wrappers
3. Steam the Shao Mai for around 12 minutes.
4. Enjoy!
