  • Bamboo Steamer Basket
  • Food Processor


  • 300 grams ground pork collar steak cut is always a good one
  • 300 grams ground prawns Tiger prawns
  • 5 tbsp soy sauce My recommendation Kikkoman Soy Sauce
  • 2 tsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp sugar Brown sugar gives an intensive Flavor
  • 1 tsp salt sea salt or table salt
  • 20 pieces wonton skins Choose a package that has a darker color
  • 2 chili pepers
  • 1 minced onion


  • Take a food processor and grind the prawns add the ground pork and the rest of the ingredients, to mix everything well
  • Take the wonton skins and place between your thumb and the forefinger, add the filing in the middle and carefully push up the rest of the skin and push with a teaspoon the filling. Flat the base so the dim sum can sit straight on the steamer.
  • Take a pan filled it with water and place your bamboo steamer on the top and basket with a leaf of Chinese cabbage o baking paper with holes so you can put on top your dim sums.
  • Put the dim sum in the bamboo steamer basket, cover and steam for about 12 min
  • Served with soy sauce.



After you try this dim sum recipe for the first time, you will see is very easy to create your own style. You can add just prawns or just pork. You can also buy the rice skin wrappers and add just prawns and steam them. You can also take the wonton skin, add the filling, roll them and fried them. As you can see there is no limit to get creative.
