Prawn, Sesame & Ginger ‘Gyoza’ in Cabbage Wrapper

Prawn, Sesame, Ginger Gyoza

I love Japanese steamed gyoza and discovered that cabbage leaves make the perfect easy wrappers. You will need a steamer pot, or bamboo steamer in a wok. These can easily be made ahead and cooked just before you are ready to serve.”

  • 1 Chinese Leaf, Savoy or pointed cabbage.
  • 150g turkey mince
  • 150g raw fresh tiger prawns, diced

  1. Cut 2cm off the end of your cabbage and peel off 12-15 leaves and place in large bowl, stalk end down.

  4. Lay a leave vein side down in front of you and place a heaped tablespoon of the mix at the base of a leaf and roll the white stalk up over it, folding in the edges as you go.
  5. Place the roll seam side down in your steamer and continue, making sure your rolls fit snuggly together. It doesn’t matter if they are more than one layer deep.
  6. Steam for 10-12 minutes until cooked and piping hot inside. Chop one open to test.
  7. To make the dipping sauce, combine the 3 ingredients in a jam jar, shake well and serve with the rolls, steaming hot.
