King Crab Dumpling Soup

  • Preparation Time: 35 minutes
  • Cook time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 5 servings


  • 1 Brussel Sprout, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 cup King Crab Meat
  • 1/4 cup Celery, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/8 cup Water Chestnuts, diced
  • 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 6 Egg Roll Wrappers/span>
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 1 quart Chicken Broth
  • 1/4 cup Green Onion, finely chopped


To prepare the filling mix, finely chop the brussel sprout. In a small, heavy pan, melt ½ Tbsp of butter over low heat. Saute the brussel sprout in the butter, stirring frequently until it is tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add the remaining filling ingredients to the mixing bowl and stir until thoroughly combined. Set aside. Brush the top of each wrapper with the lightly beaten egg. One wrapper will be the bottom of the dumpling and another with be the top.

To assemble the dumplings, place 1 tsp of filling about ½ inch from each corner of the bottom wrapper and place another tsp of filling in the center. Each bottom wrapper should have 5 tsp of filling mix spaced equally across the wrapper. Place the top wrapper over the bottom wrappers with the filling mix. Gently press around each mound of filling to seal finger-tight. Using a ravioli maker, cut out each dumpling. (If you don't have a ravioli maker, press around each mound with a small glass to seal, then use a sharp knife to cut out each dumpling. Allow ¼ inch margin around each dumpling). Set the prepared dumplings aside.

In a large pot, heat the chicken stock to boiling. Drop all the dumplings into the broth. Boil 5 minutes. Serve hot in large bowls and garnish with chopped green onion and serve immediately.
