Tired of the same boring iftaar appetizers? These can help. So easy to make and always a crowd pleaser.

Ingredients:
1/2 lb shrimp deveined and chopped in pieces
1 medium carrot shredded
1-1 1/2 cups thinly sliced cabbage
3 green onions chopped
Cilantro to garnish
2 tbs Sesame oil
1 tbs Sriracha
2 tbs Soy sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
Red pepper flakes to preference
Salt
Dumpling wrappers *

*Let’s use store bought wrappers for this post. I will post a recipe later for wrappers from scratch.

The good thing about these is how versatile they are. You can add or remove any veggies you like. This combo is always easy and yummy to me so its my go to. You can add eggs, peas, bell peppers. Share with me if you land a great combo! ☺

Heat a skillet with sesame oil. Toss in all the veggies except the cilantro. Mix and cook for 2 mins.

Add in drained chopped shrimp and mix. Let that cook for another min.

Lower heat and add the sauces to the pan. Adjust Sriracha to preference.

Season with salt and red pepper flakes. It doesnt really need too much salt because the soy sauce has plenty.

Garnish with cilantro and let it cool.

You dont want the filling to be too hot cause it’ll be hard to wrap.

Start on a clean work station. You’ll need a small bowl of water for sealing.

Fill the wrappers with a tablespoon of shrimp filling and with an index finger run water by the edges. Fold over and seal. I pinch the sides to get a pretty edge.

Whoa don’t you feel accomplished?  These guys are ready to pan sear.

Heat a pan with a little vegetable oil. When it’s hot place in dumplings and sear till a nice golden brown.

Transfer to a wrack once done. Now is the hard part where you have to wait till iftaar to eat them… ugh I know!

For an easy dipping sauce combine soy sauce with sambal oelek (chili paste).

Almost half way through Ramadan! We totally got this 😉
