Water chestnuts provide a crunchy contrast to the shrimp's delicate texture and flavor.
Whisk together the egg white, soy sauce, sesame oil, sherry, cornstarch, sugar, and salt in a medium-size bowl. Stir in the water chestnuts, scallions, and ginger.
Coarsely chop half of the shrimp. Finely mince the remaining shrimp by hand, or pulse them briefly in a food processor. Stir the chopped and minced shrimp into the mixture.
Follow the directions for stuffing the dumplings and cooking them. Makes two dozen.
