Dim Sum for someone with shellfish allergies - do able?

JThur01 | Nov 8, 2011 05:11 PM

I know someone who has avoided Dim Sum because they are allergic to shellfish (crab, lobster, shrimp, etc.)

So, how does someone navigate the Dim Sum waters if they have shellfish allergies?

I know enough that there are items that do NOT have shellfish, but I'd prefer to hear from others better versed. Some must avoids are plainly obvious, some (using bits o' shellfish and/or broth) not so self-evident. Any recommendations?
