Pan-fried pork and scallion mini buns (Sheng jian bao zi)

We adore any sort of Asian dumplings, ravioli, spring rolls, wontons, and the like. Bruce and I are both regulars at Mary Chung's where we always order Shrimp Wonton Soup and Peking Raviolis. Look for dumpling and wonton recipes in cookbooks by Ming Tsai and Martin Yan and also in the gorgeous Savoring China by Jacki Passimore. Potstickers are called guotie. Dumplings are jiaozi.
