6 portions
  • 1/2 kilos ground pork
  • 1/4 kilos shrimp, peeled, without veins
  • 1/2 cups water chestnuts, canned
  • 6 shitakes mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, mirin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons Sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, grated
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cups carrot, grated
  • 30 gyozas (dumplings), or wontons for dumplings


Chop the pork with a fork to separate it. Put it in a container and add the shrimp (dry, if they are wet put an absorbent paper towel first and remove the wet). Chop the shrimp very finely (it should be almost like a paste). Add the meat to the chopped water chestnuts and the finely chopped mushrooms . Put the rest of the ingredients (soy, rice vinegar, salt, sesame oil, sugar, pepper, chives, ginger, egg white and cornstarch). Mix well.
To prepare the dumplings, put on the pasta of dumplings (they are bought in an Asian supermarket) and put a spoonful of the filling that was prepared in the middle. Put a little water on the edge of the paste and close it forming folds around. Continue with the rest of the dumplings until finished.
In a steamer of dumplings, place a sheet of waxed paper remembered in a circle (to avoid sticking the dumplings). Arrange the dumplings half a centimeter away on the waxed paper sheet. Put a pot to boil with water and when boiling, put the steamer on top and cook the dumplings for 15 minutes on high heat. Serve with soy sauce prepared.


These dumplings can also be prepared as "open" dumplings, known as "Shao Mai" where they close like a casserole where you can see the filling.
