Wonton of Fun

Assembled ingredients

 

Layed out wonton doughs with water nearby to seal

Always looking for uses for the amazing Mayport shrimps we’re getting in FL. Got some slices of fresh pork side and chopped ’em both up, coarsely. Did not bring the food processor so had to manually chop. By all means used ground pork, or a meat grinder, or a food processor. Don’t be like me,  be like Mike, or Paula Dean, or whomsoever you please. We had them steamed the first time we did this, then fried the leftovers the next day. Potstickers, you know. This time, no foolin’ around, fried them all. Served with fresh local vegetables, most assuredly – Good Stuff!

Potstickers

1 pound peeled raw shrimp

1 pound fatty pork (well, I guess you could use lean)

2 Tablespoons fresh ginger

1 Tablespoon garlic

4 Tablespoons shallot

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

1 1/2 teaspoons tapioca

1 teaspoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 Tablespoon hot sauce

black pepper

1 package wonton wrappers or dumpling wrappers

ponzu for dipping – soy, ginger, garlic, scallion, lime juice, hot sauce, and cilantro combined to taste.

Combine all ingredients in the food processor or meat grinder and coarsely puree.

Steaming on the left and frying on the right

Tasty shrimp and pork potstickers with braised spinach and ponzu

Lay out wrappers and wet one half of the edge to help seal. Put 1 teaspoon of stuffing into each wrapper, fold over and seal or crimp with a fork. Steam dumplings in one layer in the steamer for five minutes. Remove from steamer right to some hot olive oil and brown both sides for about two minutes each. Serve hot with fresh vegetables and ponzu. Good Stuff!
