1/2 cup scallions (approx. 6), finely chopped
3 Tbs fresh ginger, grated
2 Tbs soy sauce
1 14-oz package of wonton skins
Mix first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl until well combined. Place 1 tsp of mixture in center of wonton skin. Moisten two edges of wonton skin with water and fold the opposite two edges over to form a triangle. Press firmly with fingers to seal. Repeat until all the dumplings are made.
