  • I love dumplings! Do you? I’m far from a dumpling master, but I’m learning (like in my Authentic Chinese Dumplings) and continuing to work on my “folding” technique.  Not being a master folder doesn’t stop me from coming up with fun, new dumpling ideas, like Wasabi Chicken Potstickers.

    A long, long time ago, there was a fabulous sushi restaurant in the Inner Harbor of Baltimore. When hubby and I used to live in a high rise, we would go and my favorite dish was the wasabi shumai. The heat made your eyes water and nose burn. It was that type of short-term burn that only horseradish products can create. Shumai is a steamed dumpling and they were good, but I prefer a nice crispy potsticker on any other occasion.

    On a whim, I decided to make my own nose-burning Wasabi Chicken Potstickers, combining my two favorites dumpling elements: wasabi and crunch. The amount of wasabi you use can vary from family to family, but also by what brand you are using.

    Remember that when you cook the potstickers, the heat will reduce slightly, so over compensate just a pinch to make sure they still taste like something. Typically (but not always) powdered wasabi isn’t as powerful or pungent as prepared, wet wasabi.

    Ingredients
    Dumplings:
    • 1 pound chicken ground
    • 30 square wonton wrappers
    • 1 carrot shredded or finely minced
    • 1 celery stalk shredded or finely minced
    • 1 tablespoon yellow onion shredded or finely minced
    • 1 tablespoon prepared Wasabi*
    • 2 teaspoon ginger shredded or finally minced
    • 2 teaspoon light soy sauce
    • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
    • 2 eggs lightly beaten
    • Vegetable oil
    Dipping Sauce:
    • 1 cup light soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
    • 2 inch scallions cut into 1pieces
    • 1 teaspoon wasabi or fresh ginger
    Instructions
    1. In a medium mixing bowl, break up ground chicken with fingers.
    2. Lightly toss with carrot through white pepper until evenly blended. Make sure to toss and not over work, otherwise the chicken filling will be tough.
    3. Create a flat workspace, like a cutting board or plate. Place wonton wrappers on one side and lightly beaten eggs with 2 tablespoons water.
    4. Place approximately 1 tablespoon chicken mix in the center of each wrappers. Dip your fingers in the egg wash and rub onto the edges of wonton wrapper. Grab alternating corners, pulling up and pinching together. Finish with remaining two corners, pinching all four together into a pyramid shape. Set onto a wax or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining chicken mixture.
    5. When ready to prepare, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover bottom of a large frying pan with vegetable oil, bring to a medium-high heat.
    6. When hot, place several dumplings in the pan, flat side down, covering to steam the top. Fry until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove to a baking sheet. Continue with remaining wontons.
    7. Place into the oven for 5-10 minutes to heat all the way through and crisp up tops.
    8. Meanwhile, the same large frying pan, combine all dipping sauce ingredients. Stir and bring to a low simmer, immediately remove to a serving bowl.
    9. Serve hot chicken wasabi dumplings with dipping sauce and enjoy!
    Recipe Notes

    A pre-made paste can often have more flavor than powder. If you do use a powder, allow it to sit for a few minutes to develop the flavor.
