Virtual Cooking Class: Dumpling Basics – Shrimp Wontons

Get Cooking

Join our dumpling pro and Masterchef alumna  Mai Nguyen, owner of Gourmai Dumplings, for her virtual cooking class on how to make, cook and serve your own homemade Shrimp Wontons. During your online cooking class Mai will teach you how to make her shrimp filling, then how to fill and fold your Wontons using store bought dumpling wrappers. Then she’ll show you how to make an aromatic Chili Oil, and use it to prepare a Black Vinegar and Chili Oil Vinaigrette to serve with your Wontons once they’re cooked. NOTE: you will need to use Square Wonton wrappers for your class, NOT round Dumpling Wrappers.

Ingredients for Shrimp Wonton Filling: 1lb raw shrimp*, green onion, garlic, sesame oil, sugar, corn starch

Ingredients for Chili Oil: neutral cooking oil, red chili flakes, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, Sichuan pepper, birds eye chili, star anise, cinnamon stick, bay leaf

Ingredients for Wonton Sauce: soy sauce, black rice vinegar, sugar, rice vinegar, chili oil, sesame oil

* We’ll be discussing potential substitutions for ingredients during your class, including using white fish (for those with a shrimp allergy)
