How to Make the Wontons

  • In a large bowl, combine ground pork, chopped shrimp, egg white, green onion, water chestnut, ½ of carrots, rice cooking wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Add cornstarch to the mixture and blend well.
  • Cover mixture with saran wrap and refrigerate for ½ to an hour.
  • There are a few ways of wrapping a wonton. This is how I do mine but do whatever is easier for you. Take a wonton wrapper and place it in your palm. Take a spoonful of the pork/shrimp mixture and place it in the center of the wrapper. With the use of your other hand gather the wrapper up with your fingers forming a cup. Note: Watch my siomai video to see how I do it.

How to Cook the Wontons - 3 Ways

  • Steam
  • Drop it in boiling water.
  • Drop it directly on the Chicken/Pork broth.

How to Make the Wonton Noodle Soup

  • Either you buy Chicken broth or you boil chicken and pork bones.
  • I am boiling ½ chicken with 4 cups of water and taking the broth and adding 1 cup pork broth.
  • Bring broth to boil. Lower heat.
  • While broth is simmering add onion, garlic and ginger. Cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add soy sauce, rice wine and sesame oil.
  • Add wonton and cook for 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Note: Cooking time will vary depending on how big the wontons are.
  • Toss in vegetables like bokchoy or any greens you have. I use kale, yellow zucchini and carrots.
  • Stir-in cooked noodles to warm up. Transfer noodles and vegetables to the bowl.
  • Toss-in chopped green onions.
  • Season with salt and pepper if needed.
  • Pour soup in bowl.
  • Serve with sriracha sauce if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

  1. Remove all wontons from soup. It will get mushy.
  2. Remove all vegetables and set aside.
  3. Add only the right amount of noodles.
