Siu Mai (烧卖)

My first guest post! I’m writing this post on Hillary’s behalf. From preparing the filling to wrapping the dumplings, she did it all on her own. I take credit for the pictures however, and I was the taste tester 🙂 Great job! Way to go Hillary!


(A) Filling:

(B) Seasoning:


  1. Mix filling and seasoning until well blended.
  2. Place 1 portion of filing in the center of a dumpling skin. Take the dumpling skin between the index finger and thumb. Gather edges together to make a waist. Place 1 green pea in the center of the filling. Use a knife, dipped in water, to press down the filling so that it is smooth and compact.
  3. Repeat step 2 until all filling is used up.
  4. Steam in bamboo steamer over high heat for 5 minutes.
  5. Serve hot.
