Shrimp Cheung Fun Instructions
- To make the sauce, in a bowl, add in the hot water and sugar. Whisk until dissolved. Pour in the soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil. Mix well.
- To marinate the shrimp, in a bowl, mix in the salt, white pepper, rice wine, sesame oil, and cornstarch slurry (½ teaspoon of cornstarch and 1 ½ teaspoons of water). Place in the peeled and deveined shrimp. Combine and marinate for 10 minutes. Transfer the shrimp to a plate in a single layer.
- To steam the shrimp, in a steamer over high heat, bring it to a boil. Place in the shrimp, cover the lid, and steam until completely cooked, 2 minutes. Remove and set aside.
- To make the Cheung fun, whisk together the rice flour, tapioca starch, wheat starch, and water.
- In a heat-resistant container (in my case, it’s a 9×9 cake pan), brush about 1 teaspoon of avocado oil on it. Whisk the flour and starch mixture again, and pour about ½ cup of the mixture in the container.
- To steam, in a large steamer over high heat, bring it to a boil. Place in the container, and move it around a bit to make sure everything is leveled. Cover the lid and steam for 4 minutes until cooked. Remove the container and cool down for 2 minutes.
- On a clean working surface, brush a bit of avocado oil on it.
- Place 3 to 4 pieces of shrimp on the Cheung Fun, and roll it up with a plastic bowl scraper.
- Transfer the Cheung Fun to the working surface. Trim off the two sides. Do the same with the rest. Serve with the sauce.
