Notes:

  1. You can find fresh shiitake mushrooms at leading green grocers. If using dried, rehydrate the mushrooms, then substitute for 300g reconstituted mushrooms
  2. You can freeze the dumplings before they're cooked. Simply place the wrapped dumplings on a tray in a single layer, and freeze overnight. They can then be stored up to a month in an airtight container
