Directions

Excellent authentic recipe for Shrimp Wonton soup.
Yum...

To make the filling:

Place the shrimp in a linen dish towel or on paper towels and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Chop the shrimp to a paste in a food processor fited with a steel blade or by hand.

Place the water chestnuts in a towel and squeeze out as much moisture as possible.

Place the shrimp paste, water chestnuts, soy sauce, rice wine, sesame oil, salt, pepper, ginger, scallions and egg white in a mixing bowl.

Using your hand or a spoon, stir vigorously in one direction to combine the ingredients evenly. Add the cornstarch and stir to blend. The mixture should be stiff.

To make the wonton:

Use a fork, teaspoon or two chopsticks to place a scant teaspoonful of the filling in the center of each wonton skin. Gather the edges of the skin together around the filling and squeeze to form a "waist" as you gradually remove the fork, teaspoon or chopsticks.

Next place the filling onto the wrap.
Gather the edges of the skin together, around the filling.

Squeeze the "waist" and the ends shut to enclose the filling. The finished dumpling should look like a drawstring purse. Place the finished dumplings on a tray that has been lightly dusted with cornstarch.

Place the finished dumplings on a tray

To make the wonton soup:

Heat 3 quarts of water to boiling in a large pot. Add the wontons and cover.

Once the water is boiling again, cook for about 4 minutes or until they rise to the surface.

Remove with a long-handled strainer and drain. Discard the water. Heat the chicken stock, salt and sesame to boiling. Add the spinach and cooked wontons and portion into serving bowls.

Heat the chicken stock, salt and sesame to boiling.
Looks delicious, tastes even better...

Excellent authentic recipe for Shrimp Wonton soup. We added a small clove of garlic into the filling and a grinding of black pepper then garnished the soup with finely sliced scallions (on the bias) and a sprinkling of hot chile flakes. Love the addition of water chestnuts which gave the shrimp wontons a satisfying crunch.

Fantastic recipe. The only thing I changed is I added 1/2 tsp of white pepper to the filling. I will use this again.
