- 1½ cups shaved brussels sprouts
- 1 tsp minced ginger
- 1½ tsp minced garlic
- ¼ cup chopped scallions
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro

Sweet Chili Sauce
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup sweet Thai chili sauce
In large mixing bowl combine: ground pork, garlic, ginger, brussels sprouts, scallions, lime zest, soy sauce and sesame oil. Mix with fork to throughly combine.
Open wonton package, taking only a few out at a time to work with to prevent drying out. Leave remaining in package covered with towel.
If your shape is square: place about 1 tbsp of filling in the middle of each wonton wrapper. Moisten finger tip with water and run along the edges. Using finger tips, connect opposite corners and press to seal. Then bring together remaining two opposite corners and press along all connecting edges and middle tip to seal.
If your wonton shape is round : spoon on about 1 tbsp of filling into the middle of. With finger tip, brush water around the edge of the wrapper. Fold the dough over the filling to create a half moon shape.
Heat 1 tablespoons of oil in a large non stick skillet over medium heat. Add the potstickers in single layer, with enough space in between and cook until the bottoms are light golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully pour 1/4 cup of water into the skillet, and immediately cover with a tight-fitting lid. Turn heat to low and let the dumplings steam for 5-6 minutes, until the filling is cooked through inside.
Repeat process, until all are seared and steamed. You may keep finished potstickers warm in oven on low heat, while you work thorough the batch.
Serve warm with dipping sauce on the side, or spoon a bit of sauce on each potsticker to coat with sauce.
Can be made in advanced and frozen in single layer. When ready to make, remove from freezer and thaw at room temperature for about 15 minutes before following cooking instructions.
