Pinsec Prito To Welcome The Year Of The Dragon


Chinese New Year is fast approaching, we will be saying goodbye to the year of the Rabbit will be welcoming the lucky Dragon.  To celebrate I will probably be making our favorite Chinese appetizer Pinsec Prito, and if I am in the mood I might make another favorite Chinese Hot Shrimp Salad

I and the Little Ones are absolutely crazy addicted to pinsec pritos, we can finish 10 pieces each in one sitting.   

If you would like to serve this on Chinese New Year here is the recipe:

1/2 kilo ground pork, ask for the one with more fat
1/4 kilo of shrimps, minced it up
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp of sugar
salt and pepper to taste
chopped green onions
1 pack of dumpling or molo wrappers
1 beaten egg
water
oil for deep-frying

1. In a bowl combine all of the ingredients listed above up to the chopped green onions.  Make sure to mix everything well.  Let it sit in the fridge for 30 minutes. 

2. Get about a teaspoon of the mixture and place in the middle of the dumpling or molo wrapper.  Fold to make a triangle, and then wet the edges with water and the beaten egg.  Place the pinsec pieces in a plate topped with was paper to prevent the pinsec pieces from sticking to the plate.

3. Heat enough oil in a wok or deep frying pan.  The oil should not be too hot that the pinsec pieces easily blister and burn in just a few seconds.  Deep-fry the pinsec pieces until golden brown.  Serve immediately with either sweet and sour sauce, soy sauce and chili.  

Enjoy and Kung Hei Fat Choi =)

These look really good! I'm imagining that they taste like the "sipa" at Wok Inn. Yum!

Looks delish! Yum! =)

But why is it called pinsec prito? I know that prito part but what does pinsec mean? =)

Eileen said...

Aileen, yes it is very delicious you should try making it

Tin, not sure what pinsec means, but since I was a child that's what it was called. Had my first pinsec prito at Toho in Binondo with my Dad.

We should research the origins of pinsec =)

I really love eating but I don't know how to cook. So everytime I see recipes, I always want to try them out but usually I end up more on collecting recipes than actually doing it. Hehehe...

Thanks for adding to my collection now! ^_^
