Recipe type: meat
Cuisine: Asian
Serves: 40
  • 180g green prawns,peeled, deveined
  • 115g pork mince
  • 1 shallot, finely sliced
  • 3 chives, finely sliced
  • ½ tsp cornflour
  • ¼ tsp sugar
  • salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 40 wonton papers
  1. To make the filling coarsely chop up the prawns into pea size pieces and place into a bowl. Add the pork mince and stir to combine.
  2. Add the shallot and chives. Get a small cup and place 1 tbsp of water and add the cornflour and stir, pour that over the meat mixture. Then continue to add the sugar, salt and pepper. Using your hands work the mixture together to combine. Cover and place in the fridge for ½ an hour.
  3. To make the wontons, start off by lining a baking tray with baking paper. I like to make small little money bag type shapes. Lay out six wonton sheets on to a board, place a teaspoon of the mixture into the center of each sheet. Using a pastry brush brush the edges with a little water. Fold the opposite points up towards each other and then pinch to seal the shape. Once you are happy with the shape place them on to the baking tray.
  4. You can easily cover the tray with plastic and keep refrigerated for several hours before cooking.
  5. To cook the wontons, boil up a large pot of hot water. Place in half of the wontons and cook for 3 minutes and then drain. Add them to your soup bowl or drain further to add serve as an entree.
You can also fry the wontons in a large saucepan of oil until golden about 1 minute on each side. OR you can steam them for 3-4 minutes in a bamboo steamer.
TIP: Serve with a little soy sauce
