SHRIMP WONTON SOUPFrom choclytcandy 7 years ago
- Wonton filling is traditionally made with ground pork. For something lighter, try ground chicken, preferably ground at home in a food processor from boneless, skinless thighs. In either case, the wontons are cooked separately in boiling water and then added to the stock. Time it so that the stock is already simmering when you cook the wontons. shopping list

How to make it
- 1. Mix together all the wonton ingredients, except wrappers, in a medium bowl. (The filling can be covered and refrigerated for 1 day.)
- 2. Fill and shape the wontons. Place the filled wontons on a large baking sheet covered with parchment or wax paper and refrigerate, uncovered, for at least 20 minutes or up to a few hours.
- 3. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot. Add salt to taste and the wontons. Cook until the wontons are tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Lift the wontons from the water with a slotted spoon and set them aside in a single layer on a large plate.
- 4. Meanwhile, bring the stock to a simmer in a large stockpot or Dutch oven. Add the salt, greens, carrots, and scallions and cook to blend flavors, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the cooked wontons and snow peas (if using) and simmer until the wontons are heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
- Note: Shaping Wontons
- 1. Place a wonton skin on a flat, dry work surface with a corner pointing toward you. Place 1 teaspoon of filling in the center of the wrapper. Lightly brush the two edges farthest from you with water.
- 2. Fold the wonton in half, away from you, making a triangle. Press edges firmly to seal.
- 3. Lightly brush the two corners nearest you with water, fold them over your finger, and press together to seal.
