Place a heaping teaspoon of filling in the middle of the wrapper.
Fold the gyoza wrapper over the filling and pinch the edges to seal it shut.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet or wok to medium high heat.
When oil is ready, carefully add the dumplings and cook until golden brown (about 1 minute).
Without turning the dumplings over, add 1/2 cup of water and cover.
Cook for about 1 minute on high, bringing to a boil to cook the raw filling and then uncover and continue cooking until most of the liquid is absorbed.It's ready when the juices run clear.
Mix the ingredients of the dipping sauce together.
Serve the potstickers immediately with the crispy side up dipping sauce on the side.
