Cooking is a learning experience for me. Someday, I hope to be as good as my grandma or mom. In the meantime, there are a few dishes I'm actually good at. Gyoza is one of them. It's an easy, tasty treat. But beware of the dragon breath afterwards!

1 pound ground pork
1/2 pound shrimp, chopped
3 spring onions
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ginger, minced
A dash of soy sauce
A little sesame seed oil
1 packet gyoza skin

Mix first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Place desired portion of pork mixture in the middle of gyoza skin. Dab the edge of the gyoza skin with a little water, Fold and pleat. Heat skillet with vegetable oil. Place gyoza on one side fry until skin is golden brown. Flip over and fry for a couple more minutes. Once the other side is also crispy, pour 1/4 cup water in the skillet and cover. Turn heat to low and cook for about 5 more minutes. Serve with rice and dipping sauce.

Dipping sauce:
Mix minced garlic with some soy sauce.

Haha! I have been buying frozen gyoza's so far. I eat mine with minced ginger and soy sauce and chopped red chili sometimes, for the kick. Is gyoza skin the same as wonton skin? Yours looks very tasty!
