SHENGJIANBAO aka SHENG JIAN BAO aka SHENGJIAN MANTOU ~~~ these pan-fried baozi are made from semi-leavened dough of pork and gelatin, chopped green onions, and sesame. common variations include chicken, pork with shrimp, and pork with crab meat. after frying, the bottom of the bun becomes extra crunchy and the gelatin melts into soup. this combination gives the shengjian its unique flavor.

This staple of Cantonese cuisine is also the hallmark of a dim sum brunch. Typically stuffed with ground pork (though there are other incarnations, including a ground shrimp version), this open-faced dumpling is frequently garnished with crab roe and offers the perfect opportunity to practice your chopstick technique.
Alaskan King Crab with scrambled egg and tomalley sauce, handmade pan fried pork and vegetable dumplings, and Chinese vegetables by Chef Sam Leung at Dynasty. Typically dumplings are served during dim sum, but these were a special request. It's not necessarily Chef Leung's specialty, but he whipped them up with little notice from scratch! #Vancouver #KingCrab #AlaskanKingCrab #FMFDynastySeafood #chefstasting #seafood #ChineseFood #ModernChinese
