Allow turkey breast to cool; remove skin and bone and discard. Shred roasted turkey into small pieces.

Mix mushroooms, spring onions, cashews, minced garlic, minced gingerroot, soy sauce, vinegar and lemon juice together. Cover and chill.


Place 1/3 cup olive oil in sauté pan over medium heat. Sauté white onions, chopped garlic and lemon grass. Allow onions to sweat.

Add jalapenos and rough chopped ginger. Cook for 3 more minutes.

Add cilantro bunches and cook for 2 more minutes, stirring occasionally and allowing flavors to blend.

Add stock, cream and coconut milk. Bring to a boil and immediately reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15-20 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Pass through a fine sieve.

Cover and chill if not using immediately.


Place 1 heaping tablespoon turkey mixture in the middle of each wrapper. Brush edges of wrappers with egg white. Fold over to the opposite edge, ensuring it is completely sealed.

Heat oil in a sauté pan and add pot stickers, cooking until slightly brown. Add 1/4 to 1/3 cup cold water to the pan, cover and steam over medium heat to ensure the turkey is completely heated. Uncover pan and cook pot stickers just until all the water has evaporated and the pot stickers are re-crisped.

Serve three pot stickers per order.


Reheat Coconut Lemon Grass Broth to desired temperature for service. Ladle 8 ounces hot broth per order and add 3 pot stickers.

Garnish each portion with 3 cilantro leaves floating on top.
