Pork Dumplings with Sichuan Citrus Sauce


  1. To make the dumplings, place dumpling wrappers on a dry surface. Set a heaping teaspoon of filling in the center of the wrapper. Wet the outer edges of the wrapper with water. (Dumpling wrappers will dry out; keep them under a slightly damp cloth when not in use.)
  2. Fold the wrapper up to form a rectangle shape. Pinch the wrapper to seal tight and make sure there is air left in the dumpling. Then fold both “bottom” corners of the dumpling together, pinch and seal with some water.
  3. Cook the dumplings in boiling water until they float.
  4. Serve with the chili sauce, spring onion, and Cara Cara Navel Orange cells as garnish.
