Shrimp Siu Mai Recipe

Serving: 12
Prep time: 40 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes


1 ½ pounds medium shrimp, peel and deveined (31/40)
½ tablespoon cornstarch
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon white pepper
1 tablespoon sesame oil
12 wonton wrappers
12 small shrimp, peeled and deveined (100/200)
2 tablespoons carrots, minced, for garnish
1 dash of oil, for brushing

Shrimp Siu Mai Instructions

To prepare the shrimp:
  • With a knife, smash each shrimp. Then, chop the shrimp into small pieces.
  • In a mixing bowl, transfer the shrimp inside. Then add the cornstarch, salt, white pepper, and sesame oil. Mix well.
To assemble the siu mai:
  • Place a wonton wrapper on top of your palm. Use a dining or butter knife and scoop about 1 tablespoon of filling on the center of the wrapper. Then place the wrapper between your thumb and index finger. Push the filling down with the knife, and turn the siu mai around to wrap firmly.
  • Add another piece of small shrimp on top. Then, add a few pieces of minced carrots on the siu mai. Do the same with the rest.
To steam:
  • Brush a dash of oil on the bamboo steamer to prevent sticking. Place the siu mai on the bamboo steamer.
  • In a large steamer over high heat, bring water to a boil. Then place the bamboo steamer inside. Cover the lid and steam for 5 minutes until completely cooked through.
  • Carefully remove and serve!
