This is another variation of the siomai or shaomai dish popularized in China and a popular snack in the Philippines and other Asian countries. Instead of the usual beef or chicken fillings, prawn meat fills the inside of dimsum wrappers steamed or fried to produce a tasty grub dish.

Shrimps Siomai


Pan – Sear:  (Time: 5- 7 minutes)

  • Heat up a nonstick pan on medium heat, let it heat for a couple of minutes.
  • Add 2-3 oz of water to the pan to coat the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the frozen shrimps siomai cover and cook until most of the water is absorbed
  • Reduce heat and add ½ oz of corn or sesame oil, cover and let simmer 3-4 minutes until golden brown – turning once to brown two sides.
  • NOTE: DO NOT add so much water that the siomai are submerged in it. There only needs to be enough water to cover the bottom of the pan to steam the siomai.
  • Once cooked, remove carefully onto a paper towel with a slotted spoon.

Deep Fry:  (Time: 2-3 minutes)

  • Place a deep-frying pan on medium heat. Add enough oil to completely submerge the siomai.
  • Heat oil to 180°C.
  • Once the oil is hot, slide the frozen shrimps siomai in gently, one by one, into the oil. Gently stir and turn them over occasionally until it is golden-brown on all sides. This process usually takes about 2 -3 minutes from the time the oil gets hot.
  • Once cooked, remove carefully onto a paper towel with a slotted spoon.

Steam:  (Time: 10-15 minutes)

  • Lightly coat/ spray some oil on a metal steam rack, line the rack with parchment paper (optional) or if you have a bamboo steamer that is best.
  • Place in a pot of boiling water, but do not submerge the rack or steamer.
  • Arrange the frozen shrimps siomai in a single layer about 1/4-inch apart on the lightly greased steamer basket and steam for about 10 to 15 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Once cooked, remove carefully onto a plate with the help of tongs.

Soup:  (Time: 5 -7 minutes)

  • Place a pot on medium heat. Add enough water to completely submerge the siomai.
  • Once the water is boiling, slide the frozen shrimps siomai in gently, one by one, into the boiling water.
  • Cook for 3 minutes on high heat and then immediately reduce heat to medium for 2 minutes more. Gently stir them over occasionally.
  • You can now add this to your favorite soup base with garnishes and serve.

*Cook all shrimps Siomai to an internal temperature of 78°C *
