  • ¼ teaspoon sesame oil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons lightly beaten egg whites
  • ½ cup cleaned and peeled shrimp, minced

Method of Preparation:

  2. Assemble the dumplings by getting a wrapper and placing a heaping teaspoon of the filling into the center.
  3. Fold the wrapper in half. Grab one edge of the wrapper towards the center and pinch, to create pleats. Repeat until the dumpling is sealed. Do the same for the remaining wrappers and filling.
