Directions

Chuck Hughes' shrimp dumplings are packed with flavor - perfect as a starter or even a main course.
In a food processor, mix the shrimp, ground pork, garlic, cilantro, coriander seeds, oils, chile, lime zest, salt and pepper. Process until a smooth paste forms, about 2 minutes.

Spoon 1 tablespoon of the shrimp mixture onto the middle of 1 wonton wrapper. Brush the edges of the wonton wrapper with water. Bring up the bottom side of the wrapper, fold over and press into a half-moon shape, encasing all of the filling. Place on baking a sheet, cover loosely with plastic wrap and repeat with the rest of the shrimp mixture and wrappers. Make sure that the dumplings do not touch each other on the baking sheet.

Using a bamboo steamer (or a covered pot with a steamer insert/basket), steam the dumplings for about 10 minutes. Keep warm.

Right before plating, heat a little vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat and fry the dumplings on both sides until brown, about 3 minutes per side. Garnish with the chives and serve with the peanut and spicy orange sauces.
In a small saucepan, whisk all the ingredients and bring to a boil. Let simmer until it thickens, about 1 minute. Set aside.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, mix all the ingredients. Stir and cook until reduced to a creamy sauce, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

    These were so easy to make - Valty, I would suggest getting a dumpling crimper. It is really easy with this tool! I made mine and froze them to use as needed. First chance I want to taste with the orange sauce. I bet that would be super. Thanks Chuck! xoFlea

    I can tell this would be tasty but I'm not experienced with the wrappers (first time, in fact. What did I do wrong? The filling was great, but after wrapping, I used a steamer insert (didn't have bamboo steamer. The wrappers just shriveled and exposed the filling. I tried pan frying very briefly before steaming, which helped a little, but really I've FAILED on the wrappers. Any suggestions?
