I was pleasantly surprised how good they were. With regards to cooking....mine also stuck. I did freeze half and will have to try a little different cooking method. Very authentic taste. The 1 tbls called for in filling was too much. We used 1-2 tsp. My 6 yr old son helped fill and fold the dumplings!

This healthy shrimp-and-cabbage dumpling recipe makes a big batch, so you can eat some for dinner and freeze some for later. To vary the dumpling filling, try ground turkey instead of the shrimp. Look for wonton wrappers in a refrigerated case—usually near tofu. Serve with reduced-sodium soy sauce or mix up this quick dipping sauce recipe: 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce mixed with 2 tablespoons lime juice and 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil.

The filling is easy to make and the seasoning makes even the raw filling smell delicious. I cooked some and froze the rest, cooking three batches over a couple of weeks. The first batch stuck to the pan. The second and third batches weren't much better. I followed the directions once, modified heat/oil/pan surface/water/cooking time for the next two batches, all without success. My results were tasty but not pretty.
I'm just getting in to cooking so forgive me for the obvious. I made these over the weekend using the ground turkey and froze them. Now, I'm wondering if the turkey should have been cooked before I stuffed the dumplings, or will it cook inside the dumplings during the 8-10 minutes on the stove with the water? If it should have been cooked, please modify the online recipe to read "cooked ground turkey.
If it should have been cooked, is there any way to salvage the dumplings so we can safely eat them?
I made the variation with ground turkey. Next time I will add a bit more of the cabbage. They were just delicious.
We subbed tofu for the shrimp and added some chili garlic sauce to add flavor to the bland tofu. We tried the folding instructions in eating well and also those on the wonton wrappers- my family preferred the traditional wonton folding on the wrapper. These were really delicious and froze beautifully.
