Then put a wonton wrapper on top of your palm. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of filling on the center of the wrapper. Then place the wrapper between your index finger and your thumb. Gather all the corners and wrap firmly with your index finger and thumb. At the same time, push the filling down with a spoon. Spray your plate with oil and put siu mai on it.
