*Recipe is included in this collection. PREPARATION: Mix all ingredients
except wonton skins. WRAPPING: Trim off 4 corners of wonton skins to form
Drop 1 tsp. mixture onto middle of the skin, gather up skin sides, letting
the dough pleat naturally. Flatten top and give the middle a light squeeze
while tapping the bottom on a flat surface so it will stand upright.
STEAMING: Arrange dumplings in an 8 inch round cake pan. Set pan on the
steam rack in the wok. Fill bottom of wok with water. Cover. Steam for
15-20 minutes.
Serve hot with a sesame oil and soy sauce dip. (1 part sesame oil to 2
parts light soy sauce.) DO AHEAD NOTES: Steam dumplings. Cool and freeze.
Reheat by steaming again for 12-15 minutes. COMMENTS: Insert toothpicks for
easy serving. If you use a bamboo or aluminum steamer, place dumplings
directly on the rack without the cake pan. Steam for the same amount of
time. Since steamed dumplings can be made ahead and reheated in great
quantities they make marvelous hors d'oeuvres for large cocktail parties.
The two-tier aluminum steamer works particularly well. Source: "Dim Sum" by
