This was a really fun challenge for us. We made them together, which was unusual but very enjoyable as we sipped sake, mixed up the dough, and the filling and then took it in turns to roll out and shape the little potstickers. It was also a lot easier and quicker than I expected.
Since I dont eat meat I improvised a little with the filling. I halved the recipe, taking a tin of crabmeat, a tin of water chestnuts, an egg and some panko breadcrumbs in addition to the cornstarch and chopped scallions. I added a little soy sauce and siracha for flavor.
We decided on the fried route since we knew that would be tasty! It was totally simple. I'm glad I have a nonstick pan! Thankfully I've already had experience with caramel, so it wasnt too much of a shock when the water boiled up. We were also in luck that a saucepan lid fitted the frying pan perfectly!
Thanks so much Jen for this great idea, we'd never have tried this if it wasnt for you, I'll be making these for guests sometime soon! Very impressive looking recipe that is much easier than it sounds!!
