Cheese Gyoza

These are cheese gyoza that use Lawson's (a convenience store chain in Japan) taramasalata and L-Chiki fried chicken! They go fantastically well with beer!

Ingredients: 16 gyoza dumplings

L-Chiki fried chicken
1 bag (75 g)
Mozzarella cheese
80 g
Gyoza skins
Vegetable oil
1 tablespoon
Easy melting cheese
60 g


1. Cut the chicken into 16 equal pieces and the mozzarella cheese into 5 mm cubes. Then combine the cheese with the taramasalata.
2. Place a piece of the chicken and 1/16 of the taramasalata on each gyoza skin, then close them up. You can use potato salad or other salads instead of taramasalata if you'd prefer.
3. Heat up a frying pan and when warm, pour in some oil. Arrange the gyoza inside the pan, pour in 50 ml water, and cover the pan with a lid to steam the gyoza.
4. Once the gyoza have been steamed for 2 minutes, add the cheese into the pan around the gyoza, and replace the lid for a further 1 minute to melt the cheese.
5. Once the 1 minute is up, take the lid off and continue to cook the gyoza as they are over low heat until crispy.
6. Transfer the gyoza to a plate and serve with a wedge of lemon.
