This recipe has never seen Shanghai but the wrappers have! This is a steamed dumpling with healthy, spicy ingredients. It is quite spicy so if you don't like anything too hot cut back on the Jalapeno & Chilie flakes. I like to serve these dumplings with Asian sweet chili sauce or with a simple soy dipping sauce. One very easy dipping sauce is 2 tbsp Soy sauce, 1 tbsp rice vinegar and 1 tsp grated fresh ginger. You do not cook this sauce just let it sit for an hour or so before serving. The wrappers are available in many super markets and for sure available in Asian markets They come in a 1 pound package in two separate sections and You only need 1 section for this recipe. Freeze the other half. Your dumplings can also be frozen and steamed directly from the feezer -they just take a couple of minutes longer. For quick preparation use your mini chopper.The wrappers are apprx a 4" circle The main difference between Shanghai Dumpling wrappers and Wonton wrapper is the flour. Dumpling wrappers are made from Rice flour Wonton wrappers ordinary flour. The dumpling wrapper becomes almost transparent when steamed.For additional zesty flavor add 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger to the filling
