Having multiple sets of hands makes dumpling assembly easy and fun. To make ahead, dust the uncooked dumplings with cornstarch. Freeze in a single layer on a baking sheet. Store frozen dumplings in a large zip-top plastic bag in the freezer up to one month.
1/2 cup frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans)
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons lower-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon dark sesame oil
18 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 8 ounces)
1 large egg white
1/2 cup finely chopped napa (Chinese) cabbage
1 tablespoon hot water
2 teaspoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
24 round wonton wrappers or gyoza skins
1/2 cup water, divided
How to Make It
Cook edamame according to package directions; drain. Rinse under cold water; drain.
Combine cornstarch and next 8 ingredients (through egg white) in the bowl of a food processor; pulse until finely chopped. Combine edamame, shrimp mixture, and cabbage in a bowl. Refrigerate mixture 10 minutes.
Combine 1 tablespoon hot water and brown sugar in a bowl, stirring until brown sugar dissolves. Stir in lime juice, chili garlic sauce, and fish sauce.
Working with 1 wonton wrapper at a time (cover remaining wrappers to keep them from drying), moisten outside edge of wrapper with water. Spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons shrimp mixture into center of circle. Fold wrapper over filling; pinch edges together to seal. Repeat procedure with remaining wrappers and shrimp mixture (cover formed dumplings to keep them from drying).

So I misunderstood the recipe and pureed the edamame as well - however, it was still fantastic (actually I'll bet it was easier to assemble this way) and I decided to make another batch a few days later since I still had more edamame and cabbage around. The kids loved these although I didn't admit what was in them until after they consumed many of them....worth the effort for sure. YUM!
To start: My boyfriend and I ate the entire recipe in one sitting.
A few call outs: Might be worth it to make a bit extra sauce. It is delicious and makes barely enough. Next time I am doubling it. Says to stuff each wonton with about 1 1/2 tsp of shrimp mixture. You can put more in and still have enough for 24 dumplings. I followed that amount for 1/2 of the recipe and realized I was going to have way more than 24 so I started doubling the amount and while it was a bit trickier to pinch close the wrapper, more filling in each was better.
FYI: High heat will burn the cooking spray instantly so be careful. I thought med-high heat worked fine.
Last, there was two dumplings left that we ate cold about an hour later and they were still really good.
