How to make it

  • Place shrimp and egg white in food processor bowl; cover and process until a thick paste forms.
  • Add mushrooms, crabmeat, onion, water chestnuts, green onion, teriyaki sauce, ginger, cilantro, oyster sauce, garlic, red pepper, and salt.
  • Process just until well mixed.
  • Place a heaping teaspoon of filling in center of a shu mai wrapper. Stir together 2 teaspoons cornstarch and water.
  • Moisten edges of wrapper with cornstarch mixture.
  • Bring two opposite corners up; pinch to close.
  • Bring the other two corners to the center and pinch to close (should look like an X from the top).
  • Gently twist the top and push downward to resemble a swirl.
  • Lightly dust with additional cornstarch.
  • Repeat with remaining shrimp mixture and remaining wrappers. Reserve 2 teaspoons of the cornstarch mixture for sauce.
  • Bring 6 cups water to boiling in an 8-quart pan.
  • Meanwhile, for Thai Sweet Red Chili Sauce combine sugar, rice wine vinegar, the 1/4 cup water, garlic, shallots, chili paste, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and reserved cornstarch mixture in a saucepan. Bring to boiling, stirring constantly.
  • Keep warm or reheat before serving.
  • Add shu mai to boiling water, a few at a time; cook about 2 minutes, occasionally stirring gently so shu mai do not stick to bottom of pan. Remove with slotted spoon; drain.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seed.
  • Serve immediately with Thai Sweet Red Chili Sauce.
