Ingredients

Peanut Sauce:

Spicy Orange Sauce:

Directions

  1. Chuck Hughes' shrimp dumplings are packed with flavor - perfect as a starter or even a main course.
  2. 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. 
  3. 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. 
  4. Using a bamboo steamer (or a covered pot with a steamer insert/basket), steam the dumplings for about 10 minutes. Keep warm. 
  5. 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.

Peanut Sauce:

  1. 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.

Spicy Orange Sauce:

  1. In a small saucepan, whisk all the ingredients and bring to a boil. Let simmer until it thickens, about 1 minute. Set aside.
