Prawn and Mushroom Dumplings

1 Tablespoon bread crumbs
1 egg
10 medium-sized prawns, peeled and chopped
3 shiitake mushrooms, soaked and finely sliced
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Dumpling skin
1/4 cup water (as the adhesive)

Glaze the steamer with vegetable oil and leave aside in a pot of water; this helps to prevent the dumplings from sticking.
Combine mushroom and prawns in one bowl.
Pour bread crumbs and egg and stir until well-mixed.

Add sesame oil, salt and pepper.

Put a teaspoon's worth of filling on the middle of the dumpling skin.

Dip finger in water and apply it on one end of the skin before sealing with the dry side.
Repeat the process until the filling has been used up.
Bring the pot to a boil and insert the dumplings as many as you can without overcrowding it.

Steam for 15 minutes on high heat - or when the dumplings look airtight.

Serve warm.


  1. I've never made dumplings before. You make it look so easy.

    1. I try my best, Yum List. =) It's actually harder than it looks, though. =(

  2. Yummmm!!! Looks good. With mushrooms, my girl sure would love!

    1. Thank you, suituapui. =) Please do let me know if your girl loves the flavor/variety of the ingredients. I'd love to know where I can improve on. =)

  3. Hmm, bread crumbs.. I never thought of using bread crumbs in dumplings. My mom's dumplings would be minced pork + minced fish meat + prawns + an egg for the filling..

    1. It was an idea given to me by Anna Olson in one of her "Fresh with Anna Olson" episodes when she was doing burger patties, CL. =D So, I figured that I could give it a shot and take it from there. ^^ You should give it a try; it kinda absorbs the moisture given out by the marinated meat and egg.

  4. Yummy! Interesting to see you adding breadcrumbs inside.........

    1. Thanks a lot, Shirley. =) I had the idea after watching Anna Olson in one of her "Fresh with Anna Olson" episodes when she was illustrating how to make burger patties from scratch. I thought I could muck around with that extra ingredient and see how it went. ^^ I guess it turned out well, lol. =P
