Dumplings -- kate's favorite

A bit time intensive, but worth the efforts when 4 out of 5 enjoy the meal. I got the recipe originally from Cooking Light.

1/4 c. sliced green onion
1/4 c. chopped cilantro
2 T water
2 t. minced fresh ginger
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. dark sesame oil
1/2 lb. deveined peeled shrimp
1/2 lb. ground pork
1 garlic clove, halved
1 large egg white

Put all these ingredients in a food processor and process until coarsely ground.

36 wonton wrappers

working one by one, place a tablespoon of the filling onto a wrapper, wet the sides and fold up forming a triangle. Hold each triangle by the top point and tap on counter to flatten the bottom.

Heat 2 t. of oil in a large skillet and brown the pot stickers in batches. When they are all browned, return the first batch to the pan, pour in 1/2 c. water, cover and steam for about 3 minutes. Uncover and continue to cook another 2 minutes, remove the pot stickers and keep them warm while you steam the next batches.

Dipping Sauce
1/3 c. thinly sliced green onion
1/3 c. chicken broth
1/4. c. orange juice
1 T. rice vinegar
1 T. soy sauce
2 t. fresh grated ginger
1 t. dark sesame oil.
