Vegetarian (Shrimp) Siu Mai

This recipe is orginally vegan but it contains shrimp for those who are pescatarians. But you can simply omit the shrimp because it will taste almost the same.

I found this recipe on this website, which explains it really well....

3 and a half tablespoon of non-hydrogenated margarine
1 tablespoon of grated ginger

2 cups of shredded or chopped seitan
1/2 cup of shitaki mushrooms
1 tablespoon of hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons of tamari sauce
1table spoon of 5 spice powder
(most ingredients can be found in an asian grocery store if your local one does not carry)

1 cup of grated carrots
2 cups of grated cabbage

1 package of wonton wrapers

1 cup of chopped shrimp (optional) or you can find imitation shrimp.

In a frying pan, put all ingredients A together and fry for 1 min
Then add B, fry for 5 mins
Then add C, fry for 5 min

Make a zero with your index finger and thumb, put wonton wrapper on top, put a spoon full of filling into middle, push down and create a cup with your wonton, press bottom of wonton on plate and shape wonton into a mini cup.

Put in steamer for about 20 minutes, with shrimp a bit longer until cooked.
