3.Lay out each dumpling wrapper and top with 1 tsp prawn mixture.
4.Brush edges with water and then bring sides together to form semi-circles.

6.Repeat technique, starting in middle and working left, making another three pleats. Arrange on a lightly floured tray.
7.Repeat until mixture and wrappers are used up. You can now steam dumplings, or cover and chill for cooking later that day, or freeze for up to 1 month.
