Japonais influence...

Has been searching around town for some good food and recently also found out that all the Japanese restaurant are running out of ideas for new food stuff. Of course I could not blame them as the food are still about the same price yet inflation has become an obvious scene. Since then, I can't find good food around except to cook by myself to satisfy my tummy. A sudden crave has hit me, I therefore created this appetizer made of raw Salmon.... yum!
Successfully made up these delicious "Gyoza" or Japanese dumplings, ingredients include cabbage and mince pork. Of course I buy a packet of dumplings wrap and seal it with the fillings and freeze it in the fridge for a while before I pan fry it! last but not least must always pair it with some Worcester sauce with ginger. Here's the recipe...

  • 1 packet Gyoza wrap/ dumpling wraps (20pcs)

  • 200grams mince pork

  • 1tsp finely chopped leek

  • 2 tsp salt

  • Cut 1 quarter of a whole Cabbage

  • Marinate ingredients:

  • 1tsp white pepper

  • 2tbsp corn flour

  • 2tbsp sesame oil

  • 1tbsp mirin

  • 1tsp soy sauce

  • 1tsp salt

  1. Firstly rinse the cabbage and finely chopped into tiny pieces, then add the salt and squeeze out the extra juices from the cabbage. leave aside.

  2. Now prepare the mince pork and combined all the marinate ingredients together with it and mix well.

  3. Then add in the cabbage and leek into the mixture. Mix it well.

  4. Peel each dumpling wrap and place half a spoonful of mixture in the wrap and pinch it the dumpling way.

  5. After wrapping all the dumplings, prepare a pan and add some oil in it.

  6. Place the dumplings on the pan and pan fry it. Some call it sticky pan dumplings because you tend to stick the three sides of the dumpling till it cooks before you serve.

  7. Tips: When you are wrapping the dumplings and the surface of the wraps turns sticky, you may want to freeze it in the freezer until you finish wrapping up the rest. Also if you find the mixture is watery, freeze it for a while before you continue to wrap.

  8. Futhermore, while you are cooking the freeze dumplings on little bit of oil, you may decide to sprinkle some water while pan fry it. Enjoy cooking!
