How to make Siomai:

Siomai is a dimsum of Chinese origin which is loved by many Filipinos.

One can order different kinds of siomai but the base is always pork. The ground meat should have some fat otherwise the cooked siomai will be too tough. Prawns or shrimps can be substituted for part of the pork if desired.


2 1/2 lbs ground pork

2 cups water chestnuts, minced

1 cup shrimp, minced

1 tbsp ground black pepper

5 tbsp sesame oil

1 cup carrots, minced

1 cup onion, minced

1 1/2 cups white mushroom, minced

1 pack won ton wrapper

1/4 cup scallions, minced

1 piece raw egg

2 tsp salt

Water for steaming


1. Combine all the ingredients except for the water and wanton wrapper and mix thoroughly.

2. Wrap the mixed ingredients using the won ton wrapper. (watch the video for easy procedure)

3. Using a steamer, steam the wrapped siomai (shaomai) for 15 to 25 minutes. The time depends on the size of each individual piece (larger size means more time steaming).

4. Serve hot with kikkoman soy sauce and calamansi or lemon dip. Share and enjoy!

Siomai number of servings (yield): 12
