  • Mix the filling mixture in a blender with a paddle attachment until well combine or mix with your hand. Refrigerate both filling mixtures for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Cut the wonton wrapper with a cookie cutter or trim the edges with a small knife.
  • Place the wonton wrapper into a small tea cup and place about 2 ½ teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of meat filling into the center of the wrapper. Then top with 1 ½ teaspoon of Prawn filling.
  • Remove the dumpling from the tea cup and gather the edges together with your thumb and index finger, lightly squeeze it to form a waist and press down so that the filling is compact.
  • Use your finger or small knife to smooth the surface with a little water. Then place green pea or shrimp roe on top of the surface.
  • Place the dumplings in a steamer lined with greaseproof paper and steam for about 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
