home made pork and cabbage dumplings AND salmon!

I haven't updated in a while...even though it has only been a week.
Today there was a mini photo shoot at my apartment for an upcoming magazine I'm in called No.15. I'm really excited to see the final product of the magazine. (Big thanks to Kevin Nguyen for taking these photos! go visit his amazing blog!)
Pork Dumplings
ingredients for filling
2 lbs of ground pork
6-7 leaves from a napa cabbage
1 tablespoon of grated ginger
3 tablespoons of oyster sauce
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 scallions (green onions)
-add all these ingredients together and mix it around (I used my hands)

ingredients for the wraps
2 cups of flour
3/4 cups water
- slowly add the water in with the flour, and knead it for a few minutes, if the dough is still sticky, add in some more flour.
1/2 cup of soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch
1/4 (or more) of water
2 tablespoons of sugar
3 tablespoons of Ponzu
Additional garnishs: red pepper flakes and scallions
- boil the soy sauce first, add the cornstarch until it turns into a paste.
- add the water and rest of the ingredients in while whisking. Once everything has dissolved, take it off the heat and enjoy!

Salmon with Garlic Chicken Rice
salt pepper
-salt and pepper the salmon, and add a squeeze of lemon juice
-pre heat your oven on 350degrees
- heat extra virgin olive oil, and sear the salmon, skin side up (for about 3-4 min), place the lid of the pan while your salmon is searing
-take it out of the pan, and put it into the oven for about 15 min...and you're done!

ingredients for the sauce
4 tablespoons of mayonaise
(depending on your taste) I used about 1 tablespoon of pepper
a squeeze of siracha (trust me its a must)

The rice was one of those box rices with spices in it already. (I'm a cheater)
