These delectable dumplings are packed full of delicious umami flavor. We’re making our filling with shrimp, shiitake mushrooms, Chinese black bean sauce (made from fermented black soybeans) and traditional aromatics. (After rehydrating the dried mushrooms for the filling, we’re using a bit of the infused water to finish cooking our dumplings.) A fragrant dipping sauce balances these savory flavors with the sweet, citrusy combination of soy glaze and Meyer lemon—famed for its mellow acidity and fruity aroma.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. In a medium bowl, combine the mushrooms and ¾ cup of hot water; let stand for at least 10 minutes. Stack the wrappers on a plate; cover with a damp paper towel. Peel and mince the garlic and shallot. Thinly slice the garlic chives. Cut off and discard the root end of the bok choy; halve crosswise and separate the leaves. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Finely chop the shrimp and transfer toa bowl. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife and cutting board after handling the shrimp.

2 Make the filling:

Reserving the water, transfer the mushrooms to a cutting board and finely chop. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic, shallot and half the garlic chives; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the chopped mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the chopped shrimp; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly opaque. Stir in the vinegar, black bean sauce and half the furikake.

Fill a small bowl with lukewarm water. Place the wrappers on a work surface. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the filling into the center of each wrapper (you will have extra filling).

Transfer to a plate; cover with a damp paper towel.
