Shrimp Dumplings Recipe


This quickly made up shrimp dumplings quickly became my personal favorite dish among my other culinary improvises.

I’d assume originally shrimp dumplings, as a dish, are from oriental cuisine, definitely not from my traditional Armenian, but I thought it’d be interesting if I add my own touch to the dish and I really loved how it turned out.

Happy to share my recipe for shrimp dumplings and hope you guys will give it a try.

Preheat the oven to 450° F/200°C degrees




Lightly drizzle baking pan with olive oil, set aside

Place the shrimp on the middle of gyoza skin

Wet your fingertips with cold water and seal the tips of the dough, leaving the tails out ( it’s only for the look, you can wrap all in if you prefer so)
