I hope everyone has been having a great Christmas and New Year break. It’s heard to believe that many of us head back to work tomorrow. This week also marks 15 weeks until I get married! So excited for what 2017 has in store.
You probably know by now but dumplings are my favourite food. Pork dumplings was the first recipe I shared with you almost a year ago now! I’ve also got a recipe for vegetarian dumplings and now prawn dumplings!
If you don’t like coriander (people either love it or hate it) switch it out for garlic chives. I like both ways but decided on coriander this time.
This recipe is super quick and makes the perfect dinner or snack!
Prep time: 25 min
Cooking time: 12 min
Makes 40 dumplings
- 40 dumpling wrappers
- 400g raw prawns
- 2 tsp oyster sauce
- 2 tsp garlic, minced
- 30g coriander or garlic chives finely chopped
- 2 tsp cornflour
- dash of white pepper
- Remove tails from prawns and devein. Place into a food processor and mix until the prawns are chopped up. (alternatively you can chop the prawns finely).
- Add the oyster sauce, garlic, coriander, cornflour and white pepper to the prawns and mix well.
- Place a heaped teaspoon of the the prawn mixture and place into the middle of the dumpling wrapper.
- Now for the trickiest part – folding the dumplings. There are many ways to do this but one of the easiest ways is to put water along one side of the dumpling and press the other side to it. You can then add pleats in the top to make it look fancy. I’ll do a video in the next little while showing different ways to fold them!
- Once all of your dumplings are folding place them in a pot of boiling water for approximately 5 minutes until cooked through. Drain and then pan fry in olive oil on a medium heat until browned.
- Serve with some soy and chilli oil. Delish!
