Simple Pork and Shrimp Shu Mai ~简单鲜肉和虾烧卖

My second will definitely order Shu Mai if we goes to a dim sum restaurant. Shu Mai is one of the most popular dim sum and it is also the all time favorite. 
This is a post together date with Fion and May but i am a day late, i hope it is not too

Shu Mai is ready to serve with some chilli sauce :D
Do you like to eat Shu Mai with chilli sauce too?
Making this simple Pork and Shrimp Shu Mai is quite straight forward and simple. All that need to do is mince the pork in a food processor till it is fine. Rough chop up the wash and pat dry shrimp. Add in salt, wheat starch, sugar and sesame oil. mixed them with a pair of chopstick till it is gluey. 
Get ready the pork and shrimp filling, some wanton wrappers and we are ready to start!
Add 1 tsp full of pork and shrimp filling onto a piece of wanton wrapper.
Shape it in between your thumb and finger
Shu Mai are nicely seated in the steaming rack, ready to steam.
Garnish with some chopped carrots before sending to steam.
Simple Pork and Shrimp Shu Mai ~简单鲜肉和虾烧卖
Recipe adapted from 'Mircowave Cuisine' by Sharp
Makes 25 small shu mai (1 mouth size)

350g minced pork and fat (i use 70pork/30fat)
200g shrimps
25-28 Wanton Wrapper

1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp wheat starch
1 tsp Sesame oil
pepper to taste 
1 tbsp water (i added)

To Do:
1. Remove shells from shrimps and marinate with salt (1/2 tsp) then rinse and pat dry. Roughly chop with the back of a knife.

2. Mix treated shrimps, minced pork and fat with seasonings well.

3. Take out 2 tsp of mixed ingredients from above and fold into a Wanton wrap.

4. Put 4 to 7 prepared dumplings (shu mai) into a bamboo steaming rack which lined and greased with holes parchment paper. (Just cut parchment paper and punch holes on it; to fit in the size of your bamboo steamer; the holes in the parchment will prevent water vapour from accumulating in the bamboo steamer) 

5. Steam over boiling water for 8 minutes.

6. Serve hot with chilli sauce. 

Pipping hot Shu Mai is ready to be serve!
