The idea was to make some kind of baked shaomai dumplings. A good idea. That’s very simple and delicious.
I’ve used the square wonton dumpling skins. They are all half-filled with lean ground chicken. There are 3 sorts :
Red onion, tomato sauce.
Topping is red shiso leaves.
Shishito pepper, tomato sauce.
Onion, nutmeg, parsley stalks, raisins. The sauce is miso mixed with tahini.
The 3 are great. I prefer…er, I need to compare 3 more… well, I need more…
That’s hard to decide, but I like simplicity so the onion ones will win.
