Pork & Prawn Wontons
These homemade wontons are super easy to put together (very kid friendly) and make for a delicious meal or snack! I usually make extras and place them in the freezer, uncooked, for days when I want a few dim sum pieces or boiled in a yummy Asian broth as a quick and easy dinner option.
- 40 small wonton pastry wrappers
- 150g raw prawns, peeled and deveined
- 400g lean pork mince
- 1 tablespoon grated ginger
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 spring onions
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 1 red chilli, chopped (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
- Place the wonton wrappers on a clean surface & combine all of the ingredients in a food processor.
- Place a heaped teaspoon of the mixture in the centre of each wonton wrapper, brush the edges with water and fold in half, pressing the edges firmly to seal. Gently pull the two triangle edges together to form a tortellini shape.
- Repeat with the remaining mixture and wrappers.
- To cook the wontons, bring a pot of water to the boil. Once it’s up to a full boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and gently lower the wontons into the water. Cook the wontons in batches for 3-4 minutes or until they float to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon & place on a plate to cool.
- Garnish with some extra sliced spring onions/coriander, chillies & a side of soy sauce.
