Process

Pork Filling: 
Mince garlic and ginger, chop herbs, combine with other pork filling ingredients in a bowl, mix well, set aside.

Stuffing the Won-Tons: 
Place an egg yolk is a small bowl.
Place wonton on counter, rub a little of the egg mixture around the edges of the won-ton wraper. 
Place a small amount of the pork filling in the center, fold over, press down on edges to seal.
I use a small PVC pipe cap to press and seal my dumplings. 
Repeat until you have wrapped all the filling in wontons.

Cooking:
Cook dumplings in boiling water until they float. 
If you prefer a crispy dumpling, You may also fry the dumplings in hot oil.

For the Sauce: 
Heat sesame oil in a skillet add onion and ginger, and heat through. 
Add hoisin, stir. 
Add wine, stir. 
Squeeze in fresh lemon juice, stir. 
Add cilantro and taste, you may want to add a little more wine or lemon to adjust the sauce.

*some hoisin sauces are very salty and will need to be thinned down. 
*You may also add a little rice wine vinegar 
* Try adding a little Yuzu.

Plate dumplings, pour sauce over dumplings, garnish with sliced green onions and lemon or orange zest.
