Dumplings, spring rolls, and scallion pancakes come together in one terrific noshing menu.
This menu is inspired by the Chinese tradition of dim sum—a meal made up of many small plates. But the recipes themselves draw on cuisines from all over Asia: Indonesian satés, Chinese scallion pancakes, even a spin on Korean-style beef and lettuce wraps. Many of the dishes require some last minute cooking, but the cooking time is so short, you can roll out the dishes in quick succession.
To streamline your work, make a double batch of the soy dipping sauce to serve with both the shiu mai and spring rolls, rather than the two different-but-similar sauces that go with each recipe.
