The Origins of Steamed Siew Mai and Har Gao
Siew Mai, also known as pork dumplings, are a popular dim sum dish that is often enjoyed as part of a lavish Cantonese feast.
Made with a combination of ground pork, shrimp, and various seasonings, Siew Mai packs a flavourful punch in every bite.
The dumplings are delicately wrapped in a thin, translucent wrapper, allowing the natural colours and textures of the ingredients to shine through.
Served with a tangy dipping sauce, Siew Mai offers a harmonious blend of flavours that is sure to tantalise the taste buds.
Har Gao, on the other hand, takes the form of crystal clear shrimp dumplings.
These succulent parcels are crafted with meticulously peeled and deveined fresh shrimp, delicately seasoned with light soy sauce and wrapped in a translucent casing made from wheat starch.
The dumplings are carefully steamed to perfection, resulting in a tender and juicy texture that is simply irresistible.
Paired with a savoury soy-based dipping sauce, Har Gao offers a delightful contrast of flavours and textures.
