Spicy Shrimp Wonton Dumplings

Wanton, Wantan, Wonton, or Húntún (餛飩) is a type of dumpling usually boiled or added in a soup. I steamed, and the wrapper is kind of chewy, I like it!
Spicy Wonton Dumplings should be minced meat (specifically pork). In Taiwan, whenever I order seafood or chicken, still  little pork is added. I asked, they said the stuffing will not be juicy if pork is not added. I tried shrimp, I think it's OK!
12 pieces wonton wrapper
150g shrimp, chopped
2 stalk scallion, chopped
For Seasoning:
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper powder
2 tablespoon water
For the Sauce/Dipping
1 tablespoon chili oil
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of sweet soysauce
1 teaspoon of vinegar (l used lemon)
For the stuffing, combine shrimp, salt, sesame oil, pepper, and water. Mix well until sticky form. Put stuffing in the middle of won ton wrapper. Fold the four corner sides together, press lightly in the middle. Steam in a steamer for about 10 minutes, or until the wrapper becomes transparent. Serve with sauce and sprinkle scallion and chili pepper (optional) on top.
