The Art of Oven-Baking Dim Sum
Oven-baking dim sum is an art that brings a unique twist to the traditional Chinese cuisine.
Instead of steaming or deep-frying, this method involves using the oven to cook these delicious bite-sized treats.
The result is a golden and crispy exterior, while the inside remains tender and flavourful.
One of the main advantages of oven-baking dim sum is that it is a healthier cooking method, as it requires less oil compared to deep-frying.
It also allows for a more controlled cooking process, ensuring that the dim sum is cooked evenly and to perfection.
To oven-bake dim sum, you start by preparing the dough or filling of the dim sum, depending on the type you are making.
Whether it’s steamed buns, dumplings, or spring rolls, the dough needs to be rolled out, filled with the desired ingredients, and then sealed.
Once the dim sum is assembled, they are placed on a baking sheet and brushed with a thin layer of oil or egg wash for that golden crust.
The oven is preheated to the appropriate temperature and the dim sum is then baked until they turn golden brown.
This method allows for versatility in the types of dim sum that can be made, as you can experiment with different fillings and flavours.
Oven-baked dim sum is a delightful addition to any Chinese New Year celebration. Its golden exterior symbolises prosperity and good fortune, making it a fitting dish to serve during this auspicious time.
Whether enjoyed as a main course or as a festive appetiser, oven-baked dim sum is sure to impress your family and friends with its delicious taste and beautiful presentation.
