I have tried these shrimp Shumai in the restaurants so many times but there is something magical and special about making them at home.
They look like cute little string purses when ready and I find it to be so much fun and almost zen like making them from scratch. Plus you can easily adjust the ingredients when you make them yourself.
I do recommend using a special bamboo steamer for preparing the dumplings. It is very convenient and only takes about 8 minutes for them to cook.

Shrimp mixture is enlivened by aromatics like ginger and scallions with an exuberant soy sauce and sesame oil.
