Poached Shrimp Dumplings with Sesame Broccoli Slaw

What’s in a name?

What would you call something that puts orangey shrimp with toasted sesame oil and garlic and ginger in a wonton skin, seal it up and poach it in a seafood stock?

Shrimp Stuffed Wontons?

Poached Shrimp Dumplings?

That might work.

Either one would.

So, if you are of a mind to have Shrimp Stuffed Wontons on a weeknight, knock yourself out. If you have company, Poached Shrimp Dumplings.

Whatever floats your boat.

Be prepared.

Once you make these you won’t care what they’re called. You’ll just want more.

Thanks to Emeril for the inspiration.
