Methods/steps
Blend all ingredients for mustard soy dipping sauce and set aside. In a food processor, add crab, egg, ginger and sesame oil. Pulse only a little bit to bring ingredients together. Transfer to a large bowl and fold in scallions. Season with salt and pepper. In a food processor, add 2 cups crab mixture, egg and butter. Pulse until the butter is incorporated but still visible (small pieces). Place 1 Tbsp. of mixture on a wrapper and bring up the sides going around the mound. Continue with the remaining mixture and wrappers. Drop, open side up, from 8 inches on a flat surface to level out the shumai bottoms. Steam shumai for 6-7 minutes and serve with dipping sauce.
