Crab and Shiitake Potstickers with Citrus Dipping Sauce

Yield Makes 4 dozen


  • Citrus Dipping Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh shiitake or button mushrooms
  • 1 cup napa cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/3 cup shredded carrot
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • 12 ounces fresh lump crabmeat, drained
  • 36 potsticker wrappers
  • Vegetable oil

How to Make It

  1. Prepare Citrus Dipping Sauce.

  2. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat. Combine mushrooms, cabbage, and next 7 ingredients; stir well. Add egg white and crabmeat, stirring gently to combine.

  3. Brush water around edges of each potsticker wrapper; place 1 tablespoon crab mixture in center of each wrapper. Fold wrapper over, forming a semi-circle. Fold overlapping pleats into dough on one side, pressing to seal. (The pleats enable the potstickers to stand upright.) Place on a baking sheet; cover and chill 2 hours.

  4. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully add half of potstickers, and cook 2 to 3 minutes until browned on bottom. Add 1/2 cup water to skillet, and cover quickly. (Skillet will hiss and steam rapidly.) Steam 3 to 4 minutes until thoroughly cooked. Drain skillet, and repeat steam-fry procedure with remaining potstickers. Serve immediately with Citrus Dipping Sauce.
