Dim Sum: Steam Crescent Dumpling

steamed crescent dumpling
mmm mmm
guess what? this has shrimp in it – But it also has leeks mixed in with it and it comes in a translucent white shell. It looks like it contains something alive!

It is really light and delicious. I like to eat it as well as the flavors.

A crescent is a waning moon shape. If you look outside your window towards the moon for a month, you will see a moon in the exact shape of a dumpling!
