First, let’s make the sauce. Combine the soy sauce, vinegar and the sugar. Add the doubanjiang also known as Chinese chili bean paste.
And add grated garlic, ginger root and chopped garlic chives. Stir to mix.
Next, prepare the shrimps. Please check out our Ebi Chili recipe to deshell and clean the shrimps. Crush the shrimp using the side of a knife.
Then, chop them into fine pieces.
Combine the ground pork and the shrimp in a bowl.
Add the salt, sake, oyster sauce, grated ginger root, sesame oil and the potato starch.
Mix the ingredients with your hand.
Then, add the chopped long green onion and the garlic chives. Combine all the ingredients.
Now, the gyoza filling is ready.
Here is the dough of the gyoza wrappers that we made last time.
Press the dough piece with your hand.
Then, press it into a thin flat circle using a rolling pin.
Roll the pin toward the center of the dough and back while slowly rotating it in a circle.
When the diameter reaches 8 to 9 centimeters, place the filling onto the wrapper.
Fold the wrapper in half and press the edges together while making small pleats on one side to give the gyoza its signature look.
This is one example of how to wrap the fillings but you can arrange it as you like.
Place the gyoza onto a tray covered with flour.
You can make 12 pieces of gyoza in total but today, we will be cooking 6 of them.
And now, let’s make the Sui-Gyoza. Place the gyoza into a large pot of boiling water. Gently move the gyoza in the water immediately after adding them. This will prevent the wrappers from sticking to the bottom.
When it reaches a rolling boil, reduce the heat to medium low and boil the gyoza for about 5 minutes. The cooking time depends on the thickness of the wrappers so adjust it accordingly.
Now, it is ready.
Remove the gyoza with a mesh strainer.
Place the gyoza onto a plate.
You can pour the sauce over them or dip the gyoza in the sauce and enjoy them as soon as possible.
Alternatively, you can make the gyoza using only pork or use scallops instead of the shrimp.
