Potstickers with a Spicy Sesame-Soy Foam


Potstickers are the quintessential product of Chinese cuisine. ‘Steam-fried’ – briefly steamed and then fried, as the word suggests – these shrimp or veggie-filled dumplings obtain a divine consistency that is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Accompanied by a sweet and sour, mildly piquant (or ragingly spicy!) dipping foam, these golden nuggets are irresistible.


    • 12 dumplings
    • 2 tbsp sesame oil
    • 4 tsp mirin
    • 4 tsp soy sauce
    • 1⁄4 tsp sriracha
    • 2 tsp rice vinegar
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 g xanthan gum
    • 2 g soy lecithin
    • Salt to taste
    • Spring onion to garnish
    • Black sesame seeds to garnish


To ensure a smooth cooking experience, please read the Smartwhip care and safety guidelines before usage.

    1. In a bowl, briefly combine the sesame oil, soy sauce, mirin, sriracha, rice vinegar, xanthan gum and salt using a whisk. Pour the mixture into the cream dispenser, connect your Smartwhip and charge it to 16 bar. Shake the cream dispenser for 5-10 seconds to evenly distribute the gas, then set it aside for 10 minutes.
    2. In the meantime, add the olive oil to a frying pan and fry the potstickers over medium heat until both sides are golden brown.
    3. When the potstickers are ready, shake the cream dispenser a few more times, then release the foam into a serving bowl.


Place the bowl with the sesame-soy foam in the centre of a serving platter. Arrange the potstickers around the bowl and garnish them with a drizzle of black sesame seeds and thinly sliced spring onions.
