Ingredients for making Steamed Turkey Dumplings Recipe

Asian Seasoning Mix:

  • 1 (1 inch) piece fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper


  • ½ pound 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 16 (3.5 inch square) wonton wrappers
  • nonstick cooking spray


  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

Directions for making Steamed Turkey Dumplings Recipe

  1. Mix ginger, garlic, and cayenne pepper for seasoning mix together in a large bowl. Add turkey, egg, soy sauce, bread crumbs, and garlic for wontons; mix well.
  2. Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a skillet. Spray the inside of a steamer basket with cooking spray.
  3. While water is coming to a boil, place wonton wrappers on a smooth surface. Place small rounded scoops of turkey mixture into the center of each wonton. Lightly brush the outer edges with water, bring corners of each wonton up toward the center, and pinch edges to seal. Place wontons into the steamer basket.
  4. Reduce heat under the skillet to a simmer and place steamer basket inside. Cover and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of each wonton reads at least 160 degrees F (71 degrees C), 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. While wontons are steaming, combine vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil for sauce in a small bowl; mix well.
  6. Carefully transfer steamed wontons to a serving platter and serve with sauce.
