Usually, Sui Mai are wrapped in wonton wrappers and then steamed. Sadly, wonton wrappers are Synned (booooo). We usually make our own pasta mix, and use that to wrap Sui Mai, but we figured that it might get a little complicated to follow.

We’d had Sui Mai wrapped in pak choi before, so thought we’d try the same with chinese leaf. The best thing? Chinese leaf is a speed food on the Slimming World Extra Easy plan.

Things to make these Syn Free Pork & Prawn Sui Mai easier!

There are a couple of things that make this recipe for Syn Free Pork & Prawn Sui Mai so much easier!

A fine grater and a bamboo steamer.

We use this Deiss Micro Grater that you can get from Amazon UK. It’s the best grater we’ve ever come across, which is saying something.

You can grate everything with it; cheese, ginger, garlic cloves, nutmeg, carrot – anything you like. We grated the ginger and carrot for this Syn Free Pork & Prawn Sui Mai recipe.

Next up, a Bamboo Steamer.

 

You don’t need to use a Bamboo Steamer, but I’d advise you do! Inexpensive and they do the job so well. They also look great if you have friends over for a Slimming World Fakeaway feast.

How do I make Syn Free Pork & Prawn Sui Mai?

Step 1

First up, place the pork into a food processor/attack with a stick blender for 4-5 seconds on high.

Remove and place in a large bowl and set aside. Do the same with the prawns, again on high for 4-5 seconds. Tip them into the bowl with the pork.

Don’t be tempted to put the prawns and pork in at the same time, it won’t work! You really need to mince them up separately.

Step 2

Add the soy, finely chopped spring onion, grated ginger, rice vinegar, salt & pepper and mix well with your hands until the prawn and pork and evenly distributed in the mix.

Step 3

Take the Chinese Leaf leaves and cut out the stalks. Place two leaves end to end on top of a piece of clingfilm.

Step 4

Shape some of the Pork & Prawn mix into a sausage, and place in the leaves.

Don’t use too much mix mind, or else it won’t hold together. The last thing you want is them falling apart.

Step 6

Line your steamer with baking parchment. You’ll probably need to cut it into a circle for your steamer. So fold the baking parchment & cut the end like in the picture below.

Step 7

Cut some holes out of the baking parchment to allow the steam to circulate. You can even go full on “snowflake” if you like!

Spray the parchment with Frylight – it’ll ensure the Syn Free Pork & Prawn Sui Mai don’t stick.

Step 8

Remove your Syn Free Pork & Prawn Sui Mai from the fridge, and with a sharp knife, cut into pieces approx 3cm/1inch thick.

Step 10

Place your steamer on top of a pan of boiling hot water and steam for 12-15 minutes. Pierce one of the Syn Free Pork & Prawn Sui Mai and check that the juices run clear/ internal temperature is 74°C before serving.

Remove from the steamer and serve with the dipping sauce!

    1. Hi Becky
      You could assemble these a few hours beforehand, but with raw prawns in the mixture, we wouldn’t recommend any longer than that. Hope that helps.
