Shrimp Won Tons Recipe
Yields: serves many
Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 3 min per batch
1/2 lb uncooked
shrimp, shelled and deveined
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1 egg white
2 tablespoon fresh coriander or
cilantro leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon finely-grated fresh ginger
Cornstarch (for dusting baking sheet)
1 (8 ounce) package wonton wrappers, (use 2/3 package; thaw if frozen)
Dipping Sauce (see recipe below)
In a food processor or blender, pulse shrimp until finely chopped. Transfer to large bowl and mix in onions, egg white, coriander or cilantro, soy sauce, ginger,
and sesame oil; mix well.
Lightly dust a baking sheet with cornstarch. Unwrap wontons and keep covered with a moist cloth. Fill wontons one at a time.
Place 1 teaspoon of shrimp filling on one side of wonton wrapper. Moisten edges with water. Fold wrapper diagonally over filling to form a triangle.
Firmly press to seal sides. Place on baking sheet.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add wontons, six at a time. When wontons rise to the surface (about 3 minutes) remove with a slotted spoon.
Place on a tray in a single layer, cover and keep warm. Cook remaining wontons. Serve warm or room temperature with Dipping Sauce.
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon hot chili flakes
In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, sugar, and chili flakes.
