  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 cup herring roe
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Dumpling wrappers (store-bought or homemade)


  1. Prepare the Dough: In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water and let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites until frothy. Combine the yeast mixture with the egg whites and mix well. Gradually add flour until a soft dough forms. Knead the dough for about 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic. Cover and let it rest for 1 hour.
  2. Make the Filling: In a large bowl, combine ground lamb, herring roe, crumbled blue cheese, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Assemble the Dumplings: Divide the dough into small, equal portions (about 16-20 pieces). Roll each piece into a small circle, about 3 inches in diameter. Place a tablespoon of the lamb and roe mixture in the center of each circle. Fold the dough over the filling to create a half-moon shape and pinch the edges to seal. Make sure there are no air pockets.
  4. Cook the Dumplings: There are two options for cooking the dumplings - boiling or steaming. Boiling: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Carefully add the dumplings and cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until they float to the surface and the dough is cooked through. Steaming: Place the dumplings in a steamer basket lined with parchment paper. Steam over boiling water for about 10 minutes, or until the dough is cooked through.
  5. Serve: Serve the dumplings hot with your choice of dipping sauce, such as soy sauce, chili oil, or a tangy yogurt sauce.

These Savory Lamb and Roe Dumplings with Blue Cheese are a delightful fusion of flavors and textures that will impress any dinner guest. The tender lamb, briny roe, and creamy blue cheese create a harmonious bite that's both satisfying and memorable. Enjoy this culinary adventure!
