Ingredients:  
4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

3 scallions, white and green parts separated, sliced thin on bias

2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes

4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced thin

Directions:

If you don’t have enough fat in the pan after cooking the bacon, add enough vegetable oil to measure 2 tablespoons.

1. Cook bacon in large saucepan over medium heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towel–lined plate. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons fat from pan and return pan to medium heat. Add scallion whites, ginger, and pepper flakes and cook until scallion whites have softened, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.

2. Add broth and bring to boil. Add dumplings and simmer over medium-low heat until dumplings are cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in fish sauce and lime juice. Serve, sprinkled with scallion greens and bacon.
