Chinese Dimsum Shao Mai (燒賣) Recipe 2


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)

1 packet wonton wrappers
500g Minced Pork
200g Prawns, finely chopped
1 stalk Spring Onion, chopped


1 egg 
1/4 cup of water
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp pepper


1. Mix the marinade in a bowl, big enough to hold the Pork and Prawns
2. Place Pork and Prawns in the marinade with spring onions.
3. Put the filling by using a teaspoon into the wanton wrappers
3. Steam the 燒賣 for around 15 minutes.
4. Enjoy!
