4 dried Chinese mushrooms, chopped finely
bamboo shoot, chopped finely
1 onion, chopped finely
1 egg
1 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons Chinese rice wine
1 package siomai wrapper

Mix the pork, shrimps, egg in a bowl.  Season with salt and soy sauce. Mix well with your clean hands to combine everything. Get a  Siomai wrapper and put  it flat on the palm of your hand and scoop 1 tablespoon of the meat mixture on the center of the Siomai. Fold all the wrapper upwards covering the mixture all around it except the top shaping it into a very small cup. Put all the siomai in the two layers of a steamer and steam for 6 minutes.
