These Shrimp Dumplings are light and tender – but they don’t contain any grains or eggs, huzzah!
They’ve also only got a handful of ingredients. I have made these Shrimp Dumplings a few different ways, so don’t freak out if you’ve already spotted the second recipe below
I find that making these Shrimp Dumplings with my Garlic & Chive Spread gives the best result. I’m no scientist, but they definitely turn out more fluffy and less possibly-bouncy when I use it. However, if you want the quicker version, substitute the coconut cream skimmed from the top of a can of CHILLED coconut milk. That gives enough extra moisture and fat to the dumpling mix. It also means that this recipe can be adapted to suit the Autoimmune Paleo protocol as well as being suitable for the Whole 30 program.
When I first made this shrimp filling recipe, I used it to stuff jalapeño peppers, then baked them. That’s pretty tasty, but the oven baking method definitely firms the mixture up more than you would like for a dumpling. I’ve pan fried the mixture, too – and wouldn’t recommend it. But these Shrimp Dumplings are totally at their best when they’re gently simmered for about 10 minutes in some broth of your choice.
If you want to, you can garnish your bowl of awesomeness with a few extra things – I recommend a squeeze of fresh lime juice, some sliced scallions and (as long as you aren’t on Autoimmune Paleo) some red pepper flakes. Simple food is really awesome, sometimes!
