Snapper Dumplings

Snapper Dumplings

Simply follow the steps below:


  1. Make the dipping sauce by mixing all the ingredients together.  Taste and adjust to your liking and set aside.
  1. In a medium bowl place the snapper, ginger, spring onion, garlic, sesame oil & soy sauce, mix to combine, season with salt and pepper.
  1. To make the dumplings place 1 tsp of filling in the centre of a dumpling wrapper.  Brush the edges with egg white and fold the wrapper over to make a half circle.  Pinch the edges together to seal it.  Place on a lightly floured baking tray and repeat until all the filling is used up.  Refrigerate until ready to cook.
  1. Fill a medium pot with water and bring to the boil.  Place 6-8 dumplings at a time into the boiling water and boil for approx 3 minutes or until the dumpling starts to float.  Remove with a slotted spoon.
  1. Heat a large frying pan on high heat with 1 Tbsp olive oil.  Once hot place the boiled dumplings into the hot pan and cook until golden on both sides.  Repeat the last 2 steps until all your dumplings are cooked.
  1. Serve on a platter with dipping sauce and watch them disappear. ENJOY!
