needs more salt

At some point in the day I decided that the only way to end the day after a night spent in the middle seat of a plane was to just embrace how unproductive I felt and make some dumplings, specifically these without the broth. After folding a few wonton-style, I got impatient and JMM and I shaped the rest like shu mai, which basically involves just spooning in the filling and then crinkling the wrapper together in your palm.The steamed dumplings were crazy good, flavorful and porky and juicy while also retaining their shape after a first bite. (It was also the first time I realized how much I love chinkiang vinegar — it’s usually in a recipe and you don’t taste it outright.)
