Pork and Shrimp Siomai
Pork Siomai…………..This pork siomai is one of my favourite when we go to “yum cha” chinese restaurant. I think I can eat more than 15 pieces of this in one single seat. Back home in the Philippines, this is one of the most latest street foods as you can find this in pushing carts / food carts. I remember it is sold at P5.00 for 3 pcs of siomai or equivalent to 0.30 cents NZD for 3 pcs. I missed my country! You can find good food at a very reasonable price. From my version of a very big pork and spinach dimsum, now I made a very tiny pork siomai…………………………Did you know that shrimps have a very high cholesterol level especially when you eat the head part of the shrimps. However shrimps are very good source of a nutrient called selenium. Lack of selenium in the body has been linked to the incidence of many types of cancer, including prostate.
