Smoked Mussel Dumplings

Chris and Jeff smoke some mussels, then make some dumplings!

Smoked Mussel Dumplings

  • Smoking ingredients
  • 1 pound fresh mussels, cleaned and debearded
  1. Line a wok with foil, then add the smoking ingredients
  2. Place a rack over the smoking ingredients, cover the wok, and place over the heat (outside!!)
  3. When the smoking ingredients are bubbling and smoking, add the mussels to the rack, and cover. Allow to smoke for about 15 minutes.
  4. After 15 minutes, add a half cup of water and immediately cover again to allow the mussels to steam to finish the cooking for about 5 minutes.
  • Dumpling Filling
    • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic
    • 1 scallion
    • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
    • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
    • 1 pound smoked mussels
    • dumpling wrappers (1/2 of this recipe for dumplings – choose hot, cold, or combo dough depending on your preference — cold water dough is the most flexible in its use)
  1.  Blend all ingredients in a food processor to form a paste.
  2.  Fill dumplings and cook! Steam for about 8 minutes or boil for 6 minutes, or steam/fry them into pot stickers!
