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.
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 3; freeze for up to 3 months.
For sustainable shrimp, look for shrimp that's certified by an agency like the Marine Stewardship Council. If you can't find it, choose wild-caught shrimp from North America--it's more likely to be sustainably caught.
Look for wonton wrappers in the refrigerated case in the produce department--usually near the tofu. For this recipe, we use square wonton wrappers, which are sometimes labeled “round wrappers” even though they are not round.
