- 2 cups cabbage finely chopped
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ lb shrimp peeled, deveined and finely chopped
- 1 lb lean ground pork
- 2 tbsp light soy sauce
- 2 tbsp sherry, rice wine or white wine

- Put the shredded cabbage in a bowl and sprinkle salt on it. Wait for 5 minutes.
- Squeeze the cabbage to get rid of the liquid.

- In the same bowl, mix together the cabbage, shrimp, pork, soy sauce, wine, onion, oil, ginger, and garlic. You can do this ahead of time and keep it in the fridge for up to 6 hours.
- Take a dumpling wrapper and put about 2 teaspoons of the mixture on it. Make sure to keep the other wrappers covered with a damp cloth so they don't dry out.
- Seal the edges of the wrapper by using a little water. Press out any air and make sure it's tightly sealed.
- (At this time) If you want, you can freeze the dumplings on a cookie sheet and then put them in a plastic bag. They will stay good for a month. Just remember to defrost them in the fridge before continuing.
- In 2 large skillets, heat 1 tablespoon of oil.
- Repeat for the remaining 32 dumplings.
