  • About

The Cantonese for these lobster dumplings translates into “Dragon Shrimp Dumplings,” “Dragon shrimp” is what lobster is called in Canton. This dim sum utilizes a traditional shape, called “Phoenix Eyes,” because it is shaped somewhat like the eye of a woman. Usually it is filled with diced shrimp. I have chosen to make a lobster filling and to create a new tradition, that of the dragon shrimp.
