The best way to cook frozen potstickers


Put about 6″ of water in a large pan and bring to a boil.

Add one bag of frozen potstickers (or as many as you want to cook), turn off the heat, and cover.

Let the potstickers sit in the hot water for 5-7 minutes until soft.  Pour gently into a collander to drain.  Pour about a teaspoon of canola oil onto a plate and set the potstickers, bottom side down, in the oil, sliding them around as necessary.  If you fill up the plate, get another plate – make sure they stay in one layer.  You can hold them at this stage at room temperature for about an hour.

Heat up a large frying pan over medium to medium-high heat.  Add a teaspoon or two of canola oil.  When the oil is hot, carefully add the potstickers, bottom side down, in a single layer.  They will not mind being crowded.  Fry until crispy brown on the bottom, about 10-15 minutes.  Keep an eye on them!  If your pan has hot spots you may need to rearrange a bit so everybody gets brown.

Drain on paper towels before serving if needed.
