Lobster Pot Stickers

A delicate & tasty treat. • Serves 2

Ingredients

Ingredient
2 lobster tails
2/3 pound of prawns
1 Tbsp peanut oil
1-1/2 cups shiitake mushrooms
2 medium carrots
1/4 cup gr onions, finely chopped (reserve 1 tbsp for garnish)
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
2 tsp Chinese chili paste
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp salt
2 dozen wonton or gyoza wrappers
Peanut Oil for frying
Garnish with 1 tsp of toasted sesame seeds and/or reserved green onions
For Sake Sauce
1/2 cup sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
A pinch of sugar
1 small chili (serrano is best), fresh or dried
1 clove garlic

Directions

  1. Coarsely chop the prawns and then process them in the food processor until they are moderately chopped. The pieces should be no larger than peanuts.
  2. De-stem the shiitake mushrooms and slice the caps into thin strips. Dice the carrots finely.
  3. In a saucepan with a little bit of peanut or hazelnut oil, sauté the mushrooms and carrots for about 10 minutes. Cool.
  4. Chop the green onions and the cilantro, grate the ginger and mince the garlic.
  5. Mix the prawns in with the mushrooms, carrots, green onions, cilantro, sesame seeds, ginger, garlic, chili paste, and salt.
  6. Lay a potsticker wrapper on your cutting board. Using a finger dipped in a glass of water, wet the edges of the wrapper. Place one tablespoon of the filling in the center of the wrapper.
  7. Fold the wrapper by bringing two opposite corners of the wrapper together, forming a triangle.
  8. Press the wet edges together to seal. Now wet the outside edges of the triangle. Make small creases in the sides of the triangle.
  9. Place the completed potstickers on a sheet of wax paper dusted with cornstarch.
  10. From here you can either freeze the potstickers in layers (separated by wax paper) or you can move onto cooking them.

To cook the lobster pot stickers:

  1. Heat 2 tbsp of peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add potstickers but don’t crowd the pan.
  2. Fry the potstickers until they are lightly golden brown on all sides, about 5-7mins.
  3. Add 1/8 cup of water to the hot pan and cover immediately. Steam the potstickers for another 5 minutes, the filling should be firm to touch when done.
  4. Transfer to a baking sheet.
  5. Keep warm in a 200-degree oven until all the potstickers are ready.
