Aromatic asian flavors in one bite
I order gyozas as an appetizer in any asian restaurant I go to. Naturally, I've become an expert critic.
I am going to share with you my recipe of one my favourite gyoza shrimp fillings. Simple yet packed with flavor.
Check out my instagram account where I show a step by step video of the recipe.

250g all purpose flour ( 15-20 medium size gyozas )
1 tsp salt
70ml warm water
1tsp vegetable oil ( for cooking - Step 4 )
1/4 cup of water ( for cooking - Step 4 )
1 spring onion chopped
1 garlic clove chopped / grated
1tsp gated ginger
Chinese or regular cabbage chopped
1 Tsp finely chopped chives
200g of deveined and chopped shrimps
1 tsp light soy sauce
1tsp sesame oil
salt and pepper
Gyoza dipping sauce
1 Chili chopped
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp rice vinegar
1/4 garlic clove crushed or finely chopped
1/4 tsp chives
1/4 tsp grated ginger
1/2 tsp chili oil
Step 1: Prepare your filling Mix all filling ingredients together.
add 2/3 of the shrimps to a food processor and blitz for couple of minutes.
roughly chop the rest of the shrimps to keep a bit of texture in the gyozas.
add all shrimp to the filling mixture, add soy sauce and sesame oil.
Season with pepper - you can skip the salt since there is soy already.
Cover your preparation with a cling fit and put it in the fridge to rest.
Step2: Prepare the gyoza wrappers
Mix flour with salted water and knead for 5 minutes. The texture of the dough should not be too wet or too dry. Cover with cling film. let it rest for 10 minutes while you prepare the dipping sauce. ( step 3 )
After 10 minutes, cut your wrappers into 4 or 6 equal parts. Use a rolling pin to create a 2cm dough. Lightly dust the working surface with some potato starch, corn starch or all-purpose flour to avoid the dough from sticking.
Use a stainless steel round cutter to cut circles in the dough; just like in the picture.
Lightly coat each wrapper with flour or your starch of choice on both sides. Cover them while you are doing the rest. Tip: You can stack up to 3 or 4 wrappers but not more. They will definitely stick if you put all of them on top of each other.
Step 3: Make the gyoza dipping sauce
Mix all sauce ingredients. You can use immediately or let it rest while you cook the gyozas.
Step 4: Shape the gyozas and cook them
This could be fun to make with you family and kids.
Take one wrapper at a time. place 1/2 tsp filling inside. lightly wet your finger with water and circle it on the wrapper outer edges.
create 4 to 5 pleats from each side. This step takes some practice, if you don't make it in the first go, don't worry! it takes a bit of practice but you will eventually get the hang of it I am sure ;)
Put 1 tsp vegetable oil into a hot pan, pan sear your gyozas until the bottom is golden brown.
Add 1/4 cup of water into pan and cover it. This will cook the gyozas by steam.
Remove the lid after 5-7 minutes and let water evaporate.
Serve while hot with dipping sauce on the side.
Voila! Done !
