Ingredients

  • 1.25 pounds ground turkey
  • 4-5 tbsp vegetable oil divided
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger grated
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup jarred roasted red peppers
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese 5 Spice
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 32 dumpling wrappers
  • Teriyaki Sauce or soy sauce for serving I have a strong preference for Kikkomam Teriyakia (original Takumi collection)

Instructions

  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic. Cook for about 30 seconds.
  • Add onion and shredded carrots. Cook until vegetables start to soften, about 3 minutes.
  • Add ground turkey, roasted red peppers, Chinese 5 spice, red pepper flakes, salt, and soy sauce. Stir constantly until turkey is cooked through, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Transfer ingredients to a large blender. Pulse several times, until ingredients are well mixed, but some clumps remain.
  • Working in groups of 4 to 6 dumpling wrappers, place about 1 tbsp of turkey mixture into center of each wrapper.
  • Use water to wet outside of wrapper. Use your fingers to fold wrapper into a taco shape, then bunch edges together from the outside in. Place each potsticker on a baking sheet or plate.
  • Heat 1-2 tbsp of oil over medium-high heat in large skillet. Place potstickers flat side down in skillet and cook for about 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Remove and place aside. Add more potstickers, and oil as needed, until all are cooked (you will be able to fit around 20-24 potstickers in a 12 inch skillet). NOTE: If you do not want to use all potstickers right away, you can freeze the remaining potstickers in a single layer. Once they have frozen for a few hours, you can place them in a large Ziplock bag.
  • Add 1/3 cup water to skillet and reduce heat to low so that the water is simmering (this assumes you are using about 24 potstickers in a 12 inch skillet). Place lid on skillet, but tilt it up so that steam can escape. Let steam until most of the water has evaporated, which will be about 5 minutes. Remove potstickers from skillet.
  • Serve with soy sauce or teriyaki sauce. I prefer teriyaki sauce.
