Traditionally Fresh Chinese Shrimp Soup Dumpling
Dumplings are a treat around the world and each country has one or more styles to delight guests and family. Jiaozi is an oriental dumpling made with ground meat, including seafood, or vegetables and a times, a combination of both. After adding filling to the dough, seal the edges together or in the case of the round wrapping, crimp the edges together with the fingers. Eat the dumplings alone after steaming, dipping them in some type of soy-based sauce. As a treat, add the dumplings to a broth. Serve it as a light soup, an excellent start to any meal. Add flavors such as ginger or vinegar to get the different tastes.
You will find two types of wrapping skins for Asian recipes, both available in square or round shapes. One is for Wonton and the other wrap makes Potstickers and dumplings, such as Chinese Shrimp Sup Dumpling. The Wonton skin or wrapper is thin and delicate. The dumpling skin is a bit thicker and seldom has egg added, making it chewier and tastier. Of course, shrimp is not the only seafood that added to oriental dumplings. Lobster is very common, but more expensive.
Vegetables are a very important part of Oriental cuisine. A vegetable stir-fry is a great second course, particularly with the asparagus, broccoli, long beans, squash, and celery available to combine in the Wok. A bit of sesame oil and ginger adds the right flavor. Go with the family’s preference for either steamed white or wheat rice, or crispy noodles. Hot or cold Oolong or Jasmine tea is always appropriate with Chinese food. You can also pair it with a delightful white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc.
