Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a bowl, toss the cabbage with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Set a side for 15 minutes to draw excess moisture from the cabbage. Drain in a strainer and rinse with water. Squeeze the cabbage in your hands to remove more moisture.
  • Transfer the cabbage to a bowl and add the garlic, ginger, Chinese chives and shrimp. Stir the ingredients so they come together. Add salt, sugar, pepper, soy sauce, and sesame oil and combine well.
  • Scoop up about 1 tablespoon of filling and put it in the center of a gyoza wrapper. Fold, pleat, and press to enclose the filling into a pleated crescent shape. Place the finished dumplings on a plate lined with parchment paper (to avoid the bottom sticking to the plate). Repeat the same until the filling is used up.
  • Combine some soy sauce, rice vinegar, and chili oil in a small bowl to create dipping sauce. Taste and adjust the flavor according to your liking.
  • Heat up a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil. Add the dumpling one at a time, placing the sealed edges up in a winding circle pattern. Fry the dumplings for 1-2 minutes, until they are golden or light brown at the bottom.
  • Add 1/4 inch depth of water into the skillet and cover it immediately with its lid and lower the heat to medium. Let the water bubble away until it’s dry, for about 6-8 minutes. After the water is gone, remove the lid and fry for another 1-2 minutes until the bottoms are brown and crisp. Transfer the dumplings to a serving plate and serve immediately with the dipping sauce.
  • VERY IMPORTANT if you freeze these make sure the gyosa are not touching together. You dont want them to get stuck together.
