Prawn and Pork Dumplings Recipe

Making these prawn and pork dumplings might be a little fussy initially, but once you’ve got the hang of the wrapper, it’ll seem easy! Pair with a spicy dipping sauce for a great taste.

Serves 6
30 mins
Difficulty: Medium


100g prawns, roughly chopped
200g minced pork
2 spring onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tsp ginger, grated
2 tbsp oyster sauce
80g bamboo shoots, sliced
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 red chilli, chopped
Dumpling wrappers
2 tbsp vegetable oil


  • In a food processor, add the prawns until they form a paste
  • Add the minced prawns to a bowl with the minced pork, 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, spring onions, garlics, ginger, oyster sauce and bamboo shoots. Mix together.
  • Place 1 tsp of mixture into one half and fold over the wrapper
  • Pinch the wrapper together to ensure the mixture stays inside. Continue until all the mixture is used
  • In a deep frying pan, add the oil on a medium heat. Add the dumplings into the pan (it may require 2 batches of cooking)
  • After 2 minutes, the dumplings will be golden on the bottom. Add ½ cup of water to fill the pan until 1/3 of a way up the dumplings. Put on a lid and steam for 3 minutes. Remove the lid and continue cooking for another 3 minutes
  • Mix together the soy sauce, chopped chilli, and 1 tbsp of sesame oil for the dipping sauce.
  • Serve the dumplings hot, with the dipping sauce
