Last night my lovely friends Shannon, of Shanners in the City, Rebecca, and I made the most delicious shrimp pot stickers with a Sriracha-ginger dipping sauce. They were so fun and easy to make; that I thought they would be a perfect treat at your New Year's Eve party!?
for the dipping sauce:
1/2 cup soy sauce
5 tablespoons white vinegar
4 teaspoons Sriracha sauce*
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
scallion greens (optional), for garnish
for the pot stickers:
2 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium carrot, diced medium
1 large egg white
1 pound large shimp, peeled and deveined
36 wonton wrappers
nonstick cooking spray
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, Sriracha, sugar, ginger, and sesame oil; set dipping sauce aside. Make pot stickers: In a food processor, process scallions, carrot, egg white, and half the shrimp until a paste forms. Transfer to a medium bowl. Roughly chop remaining shrimp and add to bowl. Stir in 3 tablespoons dipping sauce.
2. Working with one wonton wrapper at a time, place 1 scant tablespoon shrimp mixture in center. With a wet finger, moisten edge of wrapper, then fold over filling and press to seal. Cover filled dumplings with a kitchen towl while you work.
3. Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over high. In batches, cook dumplings until golden brown on both sides. 1 to 2 minutes per side. Carefully add 1/2 cup water to skillet, cover, and cook until water has almost evaporated and dumplings are tender, 3 minutes. Uncover and cook until remaining water evaporates (reduce heat to medium if dumplings are overbrowning). Transfer pot stickers to a plate. Wipe skillet clean between batches. Add scallion greens to dipping sauce if desired and serve alongside pot stickers.

And it is amazing!!
We didn't have time to make dessert last night; so instead I dreamed about these Strawberry Champagne Sparkler Cupcakes . . . You can find the recipe here.
Enjoy My Loves!
