Chinese Shrimp Dumplings (Shiu Mai) are one of those Chinese dishes that I always used to order until I made them myself. These shrimp filled wonton wrappers are steamed to cook them without affecting the texture or flavours. The shitake mushrooms, water chestnuts, Pork and shrimp provide a texture that is absolutely divine. When the mixture is wrapped in the wontons and steamed they are better than anything you can order.  Dumplings are a particular dish and not the same as Dim Sum. Dim Sum is the name given to a variety of dishes while dumplings are a dish of Dim Sum
