  5. Wrap it up like an open flower. Line them on the plate and top with a small pcs of salted egg yolk. Repeat the rest until u finish all the meat mixture.

Ready to send to steamer for hot bath. :)
  1. Some Siew mai recipes call for fish paste, you can add in 100g fish paste to this recipe too. However, please adjust the soy sauce as some fish paste is very salty.
  2. If you are not using Feng He Garden light soy sauce, I will suggest to add in 1-2 teaspoon of sugar for sweetness.
  3. You can find Feng He Garden Sauce from the following link.
