i made too many gyoza so i froze some. my question is, am i supposed to pan fry them directly out of the freezer? or should i let them thaw first? when theyre fresh i pan fry, pour water in the pan and cover the lid so they steam and then let them crisp up again once the water is evaporated

Guess it depends a bit on the size but just dropping them into the pan frozen should be fine. Just maybe give it a bit more time to steam.
>>14503606i was thinking the oil might splash as the bottom thaws though
>>14503611Unless you have some bad freezer burn that shouldn't be any more of an issue than with fresh dumplings.
>>14503564Just wait a bit.
>>14503564I usually simmer in water then pan fry them brown
