“This is my favorite potsticker recipe to make! I found this recipe in a Weight Watchers cookbook but I made a few modifications to it.”
3 potstickers and 2 teaspoon sauce

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the dipping sauce, whisk the soy sauce, vinegar, scallions, sesame seeds, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a bowl; set aside in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. To make the filling, process the shrimp scallions, water chestnuts, ginger, sherry, oyster sauce, sesame oil, garlic, chili paste, and egg white in a food processor until smooth.
  3. Arrange wonton wrappers on a work surface. Place 1 teaspoon of filling in the center of each wrapper. Brush the edges of each wonton with water, then fold in half, pressing the edges to seal. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers, to make 36 dumplings.
  4. From here you can either freeze them or immediately cook them.
  5. To cook them: place about 8 (do not over crowd the pan) in a non stick skillet. Pour water in the bottom of the pan just enough to cover it. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce to a simmer. Cook potstickers for about 5 minutes. Drain any excess water and add 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil to the pan. Cook on medium heat for 2 minutes on each side until golden brown.
