Menu Description: "Six pot stickers filled with fresh ground turkey meat seasoned with ginger, water chestnuts, red pepper and green onions.They are fried and served in a basket with spicy hoisin."

Pot stickers are a popular Asian dumpling that can be fried, steamed, or simmered in a broth. Planet Hollywood has customized its version to make them crunchier than the traditional dish, and it's a tasty twist that I'm sure you'll love. The spicy hoisin sauce is made by adding a little cayenne pepper to store-bought hoisin sauce.

    • Instructions

      1. In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients (except the egg, wrappers and oil). Add 1 tablespoon of the beaten egg. Save the rest of the egg for later. Preheat oil in a deep fryer or a deep saucepan to 375 degrees F. Use enough oil to cover the pot stickers—1 to 2 inches should be enough.

      2. Mix a pinch or two of cayenne pepper with the hoisin sauce. Set aside.

      3. Invert a small bowl or glass with a 3-inch diameter on the center of a wonton wrapper and cut around it to make a circle. Repeat for the remaining wrappers.

      4. Spoon 1/2 tablespoon of the turkey filling into the center of one wrapper. Brush a little beaten egg around half of the edge of the wrapper and fold the wrapper over the filling. Gather the wrapper as you seal it so that it is crinkled around the edge. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

      5. Deep-fry the pot stickers, 4 to 6 at a time in the hot oil for 3 to 5 minutes or until they are brown. Drain on a rack or paper towels. Serve with spicy hoisin sauce on the side for dipping.

      Serves 3 to 4 as an appetizer.

      : If you can't find wonton wrappers, you can also use eggroll wrappers for this recipe. Eggroll wrappers are much bigger, so you will be wasting more of the dough when you trim the wrappers to 3-inch diameter circles. In a pinch, though, this is a quick solution. Pot sticker wrappers can also be found in some supermarkets, but I've found the wonton wrappers and eggroll wrappers, when fried, taste more like the restaurant version.

We love these I have also used ground pork, and ground chicken. I generally cook the mixture and steam the potstickers in a bamboo steamer instead of frying.... One of my daughter's favorite foods.

Most stores sell a plastic gadget that presses the edges together for you and looks fabulous. I make these all the time! Try serving with Sweet Thai chili sauce, also found in most groceries.
