For the filling:

In a blender, combine the garlic and ginger. Blend and slowly pour the peanut oil and process to a purée. Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix together thoroughly with a spoon and refrigerate, covered, for 1 hour.

For the dipping sauce:

Combine all ingredients for the dipping sauce and whisk together until evenly combined.

For the potstickers:

Separate the wonton wrappers. Brush the edges with egg wash. Place a generous spoonful of the filling and fold the edges together, starting from the center, and going down to each end to create a half-moon shape. Continue until you have used up the filling. Refrigerate until ready to cook.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch the potstickers in small batches and drain. Coat a nonstick skillet with the peanut oil and sear the potstickers until golden brown on the bottom. Transfer to a plate and serve with the dipping sauce.
