Siomai is the first food i ever cooked for Itoy, my fiance. Come to think of it, for his entire clan! I brought a few dozens for their family reunion when we were barely a month together. Needless to say, I made quite a good impression (or so Itoy says).

How to Make Itoy's Siomai


  1. Pour hot water over ground meat. (I do this to slightly "cook" it.) Drain.
  2. Slice shrimps into itty bitty pieces, almost the size of the ground meat.
  3. Combine ground meat, shrimps, grated onion, and minced garlic. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Add a few drops of Kikkoman soy sauce (I insist on Kikkoman!), salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Put a teaspoonful of the siomai mix in the center of a molo wrapper. Twist corners together.
