Scallop and corn dumplings two ways

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ pounds Sea scallops
¼ teaspoon Salt
¼ cup Soft tofu; preferably silken
¼ cup Cooked corn
¼ cup Minced red bell pepper
3 tablespoons Minced scallion
2 tablespoons Finely-chopped fresh coriander
18 Round won ton wrappers
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
⅓ cup Water
3 tablespoons Rice vinegar
1 tablespoon Soy sauce
1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
2 tablespoons White sesame seeds; toasted lightly
Scallions; for garnish
6 cups Chicken consomme
1 cup Julienned vegetables
(i.e red bell pepper; carrots, zucchini)
Coriander leaves

Discard small tough muscle from side of each scallop and in a food processor puree half scallops with salt. With motor running add tofu in a stream and blend until just combined. Transfer scallop mousse to a small bowl. Chop finely remaining scallops and stir into mousse with corn, bell pepper, scallion, and coriander.

Assembling pot stickers: Place a tablespoon of filling in center of 1 wrapper and moisten edge of wrapper. Gather edge of wrapper up and around filling, pleating edge. Gently squeeze middle of pot sticker to form a waist, keeping filling level with top of wrapper. (Pot sticker will resemble a sack filled to the top.) Continue making pot stickers and arrange in one layer on wax paper dusted lightly with cornstarch. In a large non-stick skillet heat oil over moderately-high heat until hot but not smoking and fry pot sticker bottoms until golden about 1 minute. Add water and steam pot stickers, covered, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove lid and cook pot stickers until liquid is evaporated and bottoms are recrisped. In a small bowl whisk together the dipping sauce ingredients. Serve pot stickers with dipping sauce and garnish with scallion brushes. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.

Assembling dumplings for soup: Place 1 tablespoon of filling in the center of 1 won ton wrapper and moisten edge. Fold wrapper in half and pleat one side to make a decorative edge and seal by pressing edges together. As an alternative, gather the edge of the wrapper up and around the filling and pinch together to form a closed sack. Continue making dumplings and arrange in one layer on wax paper dusted lightly with cornstarch. In a saucepan heat consomme to a simmer over moderate heat. Add the dumplings to the simmering consomme and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until dumplings are firm.

Stir in mixed julienned vegetables and serve garnished with coriander leaves. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
