Here's my homemade version of the dim sum I enjoy in restaurants. The little pinwheels can either be fried or baked. —Julie Merriman, Seattle, Washington

  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 pound uncooked shrimp (31-40 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 6 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce, divided
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh gingerroot
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated seamless crescent dough sheet
  • Oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


  1. Place pork, shrimp, green onions, 1/4 cup soy sauce, oyster sauce, garlic, 2 tablespoons sesame oil and ginger in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped.
  2. Unroll each sheet of crescent dough into a rectangle. Spread each with half the pork mixture to within 1 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Freeze 1 hour or until firm.
  3. Using a serrated knife, cut each roll crosswise into 12 slices. In an electric skillet, heat 1/2 in. oil to 350°. Fry slices, a few at a time, 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Or preheat oven to 375° and place 1 in. apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
  4. In a small bowl, mix chili sauce and remaining soy sauce and sesame oil. Arrange slices on a serving platter; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with sauce.
