Healthy and hygiene-conscious, these shumai dumplings are perfect for a souvenir, and tasty as they are, no matter when you eat them.
These healthy shumai dumplings without excess fat are made with a filling of minced chicken breast and bean-starch vermicelli, dressed in finely shredded shumai skin, and steam-cooked to perfection. Topped with a paste of honey-pickled ume, they are delicious as they are, even without a dip in soy sauce. Tasty hot or cold, and good for the health—these Chinese dumplings make the perfect souvenir.
We used finely shredded dumpling skin to achieve a soft texture even when the dumplings get cold. Paying great attention to food hygiene, we top the dumplings with a paste of pickled ume and lay bamboo leaves under them for sterilization.
