Simple, delicious, and easy to eat: Jake’s pork and shrimp pot stickers are a great appetizer to make for any occasion.
2 pounds ground pork
4 green onion, minced
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
6 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
2 teaspoons granulated onion
2 teaspoons granulated garlic
½ teaspoon sea salt
30 wontons wrappers
Vegetable oil, for frying
Using your hands or a wooden spoon, in a large bowl mix together the pork, green onions, oil, soy sauce, ginger, granulated onion, granulated garlic, and salt until fully incorporated.
Lay out the wonton wrappers and spoon 1 tablespoon of the pork filling into the center of each square. Using your fingertip, lightly brush the edges with water. Fold the skins over the filling into triangles and use a fork to gently crimp the edges closed.
Line a plate with paper towels and set aside. Heat 2 inches of oil in a deep heavy-bottomed skillet over high heat until very hot. (Dip a corner of a pot sticker in the oil and if it sizzles, it’s ready.)
Working in batches so as not to overcrowd the pan, fry the pot stickers until crispy and golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Remove the pot stickers to the lined plate.
Whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, and crushed red pepper in a small bowl. Serve immediately with the sauce on the side.
