Why it's delicious
I created this recipe for my daughter as a protein dense breakfast for her and her pescatarian ways. She needed a quick breakfast, grab, dip and go style and loved the style of Yum cha dining, so this delicious slip of a brekkie is perfect for her and anyone who wants the taste without the guilt!
- 500 g (1.1 lb) raw green prawn tails, frozen or fresh
- ½ tsp low sodium tamari
- 4 tbsp freshly grated ginger
- 4 tbsp finely chopped coriander or basil leaves
- 1 tsp Himalayan salt
- 1 tsp finely ground black pepper
Tamari Dipping Sauce ( makes enough for leftovers and storing)
- 10 tbsp low sodium tamari
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
- Pinch of chilli flake to taste
- If using frozen prawn tails, defrost for 5 minutes under slow running water. Chop the tails roughly and add to a food processor or blender along with the ½ teaspoon of tamari, grated ginger, coriander or basil leaves, salt and pepper. Pulse a few times to just blend and chop the mixture.
- Mix together the ingredients for the dipping sauce in a bowl and taste for flavour adding more lime juice and chilli to taste.
- Prepare your pot for steaming, or your steamer equipment as per manufacturer's instructions. If using a pot, add 15 cm of warm water to the bottom of a large pot and place the steamer basket on top of the pot. Add a well fitted lid and set the pot on medium temperature and allow the steam to build up in the basket.
- Using a set of scales, measure the dumpling mixture with a tablespoon into 23-25 gram balls and let them sit on a piece of non-stick baking paper. You can simplify this task by having a small bowl of cold water next to where you are working. Dip your fingers into the water each time you portion and roll a dumpling.
- Once the steam has built up in your steamer, carefully place the dumplings into the basket and steam with the lid on for 3- ½ to 4 minutes. Remove the dumplings from the basket and serve with a small dish of the Tamari dipping sauce.
