Vegetable Potstickers with Thai Red Chili Paste

For my sister in law's baby shower today I did my famous-buy frozen potstickers from Trader Joes and make them special. I forgot to take a picture until we were mostly done eating, but at least you can see people liked them by the almost empty platter. The beauty of these guys is you need no dipping sauce. It's right there on the potstickers. The key is my deglazed concoction of Thai Red Chili Paste and soy sauce. Here's how it's done:

1 package Frozen Trader Joe's Vegetable Potstickers
1 Tb Thai Red Chili Paste
2 Tb soy sauce
1 Tb water
1 ts minced garlic
1 ts chives
oil for pan frying

Mix chili paste, soy sauce, water, garlic and chives in a bowl
Put a very shallow amount of oil in a skillet and heat on medium high until shimmering
Arrange potstickers in pan and cook until golden brown underneath
Pour in Red Chili Paste mixture and quickly cover with a lid
Allow to cook and deglaze for 2-4 minutes. Uncover lid, arrange on a platter, and enjoy!
