Wontons are easy to make. Super easy. And the distinctive Asian flavors make them an appetizer everyone will crave. I would make around 50 to 60 of them as one batch and store them all in the freezer as they are one of the most convenient and versatile foods to keep around for weeks. You can choose to use different ingredients for filling though –  I will just the basic stuff for this post.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 500gr of pork mince
  • 250g of prawn (peeled, de-vine)
  • 1 tspn of ground ginger
  • 2 finely chopped cloves garlic
  • 1 finely chopped spring-onion
  • 1 tspn of soya sauce
  • 2 tspn of oyster sauce
  • 1 tspn of cornsratch
  • 1 egg
  • wonton wrappers (normally it will be 50 in 1 pack)

COOKING STEPS:

  • Divide the prawn into 2 parts: process half, and chop half
  • In a large mixing bowl, add in processed prawns, pork, ginger and all of the seasonings. Mixed well.
  • Add in the chopped prawn with chopped spring onion, mix them evenly
  • Place the filling in the center and fold the wrapper over the way you like.
  • You can boil, serve with noodle (with or without the soup), serve by itself with soya sauce + chilli sauce or deep-fry these wontons  !!

Here is also my recipe for the spicy sauce as below pic:

Combine together: 1/4 cup soy sauce + 2 tablespoons chili oil + 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon Chinese black vinegar + 1 teaspoon sesame oil + 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar

Bon appétit
