Fried Siomai

Siomai originated in East Asia and it is very famous because of its taste and wrapping design. It takes passion to make siomai. You can either steam or fry siomai. 


  • ½ kilo ground pork
  • 1 medium-sized onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp oyster sauce
  • ½ tsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp liquid seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pack wonton wrapper
  • 3 cups of vegetable oil


  1. In a bowl combine ground pork, onion, garlic, oyster sauce, soy sauce, liquid seasoning, salt, pepper, sugar, and egg.  Mix until well combined.
  2. Put a tablespoon of the mixture at the center of the wonton wrapper.  Gather sides of the wrapper to form a cup around the meat mixture.  Repeat the process until you finish all the mixture.
  3. Make sure to brush the bottom of the steamer with cooking oil to prevent siomai from sticking.  Arrange siomai in the steamer.  Steam for 25-30 minutes over low-medium heat.
  4. Preheat a pan with 3 inches of vegetable oil until smoking hot. Once the siomai is cooked, transfer it on the pan and fry it until golden brown. Once done, transfer the fried siomai in a wire rack to rest and to remove excess oil.
  5. Serve with lime and soy sauce.
