  • 250g Snapper Fillet, skin removed
  • 100g-120g Fresh Baby Corn, diced 
  • 1.5 tablespoons Potato Starch 
  • 2 cm piece Ginger, grated
  • 2 Shallots, finely sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Gluten-Free Soy Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Sesame Oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt (adjust to taste)


  1. Prepare Crystal dough as per packet instruction.
  2. Blanch fresh baby corn for one minute, rinse in cold water, and drain well. Dice them in small.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine snapper fillet finely diced, baby corn, ginger, shallots, gluten free soy sauce, sesame oil, pepper, and salt. Mix well.
  4. Add potato starch if the mixture needs binding. The consistency should allow you to form dumpling balls.
  5. Divide the dough into small balls and cover them with a damp towel.
  6. Sprinkle some gluten free flour onto a work surface and use a rolling pin to roll the dough out until it is approximately 9 centimeters in diameter.
  7. Put about 1 teaspoon of filling into the center of the skin.
  8. Fold wrapper over to enclose filling. Hold in both hands and start twisting to thinner the excess dough and press to seal as you go.
  9. Grease the bottom of your bamboo steamer with your favourite cooking oil.
  10. Transfer the dumplings to bamboo steamer. Cover the bamboo steamer with a towel to keep the dumplings from drying out.
  11. Continue making additional dumplings until all dough/filling has been used.
  12. Steam the dumplings for 9-10 minutes. 
  13. Serve with a gluten-free soy sauce or any other dipping sauce of choice.
  14. Sprinkle some Rainbow Seaweed Flakes on top.
*Pan-fry: optionally, you can flatten a few dumplings slightly for pan-frying, ensuring they hold their shape. Oil the pan and add a few drops of water.
