Shrimp Won Tons are fabulous! Homemade won tons are so much better tasting than purchased one, plus they are so very easy to make. I consider a steaming bowl of won tons welcome in any time of the year, plus making them at home is an easy process. They taste like a restaurant treat, but they are quick and easy to make at home. These homemade Won Tons will definitely impress your family and guests and be a crowd pleaser.

- 1/2 pound shrimp, uncooked, shelled and deveined
- 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
- 1 egg white
- 2 tablespoon cilantro leaves or fresh coriander leaves, chopped
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger, fresh, finely-grated
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
- Cornstarch (for dusting baking sheet)
- 1 (8-ounce) package wonton wrappers, (use 2/3 package; thaw if frozen)
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar, granulated
- 1/2 teaspoon hot chili flakes
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 the prepared 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.
In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, sugar, and chili flakes.
