You’ll need

Sui Mai
300gms lean pork mince
150gms green prawn meat
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
2 spring onions, chopped
2 tbsp freshly chopped coriander
1 packet gyoza wrappers (round wonton wrappers)

Ginger Dipping Sauce
1 cup chicken stock
2 spring onions, roughly chopped
5cm piece fresh ginger, roughly chopped
1 tbsp light soy sauce
½ tsp sugar

Let’s go

To make sui mai: place prawn meat, garlic, ginger, spring onions and coriander in food processor and pulse until prawn meat is roughly chopped (don’t process too much or prawns will become pasty). Stir through pork mince. Holding a gyoza wrapper in your hand, fold it in slightly to make a small cup. You could also use an egg cup – place a wrapper in an egg cup. Fill with mixture and place on a plate under a damp tea towel. Continue until all mixture is used.

Sui mai will last in the fridge covered with the damp tea towel for 4 hours or so, so you can easily make these ahead of time. When you are ready to cook them, place in a steamer covered with baking paper (with a few holes cut out of it to let the steam through), and steam over boiling water for 5-6 minutes until cooked through. Serve with ginger dipping sauce.

To make ginger dipping sauce: place all ingredients into a small saucepan, bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer until sauce is reduced by half.

Why it’s good for you:
Sui mai are steamed and not fried or deep fried which is always a bonus. They look like you’ve been slaving for hours but are so easy to make. If you’ve got kids, get them to make them; that’s how easy they are. Gorgeously fresh, sui mai make a lovely addition to any chinese inspired meal or just a week day dinner.
