Wonton filling
  • 250 g ground pork ,fat vs lean meat: 3:7
  • 2 tbsp. chopped scallion
  • 1 tbsp. chopped ginger
  • 1 tbsp. oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp. light soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 small egg
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp. sesame paste
  • 5 tbsp. cold water plus more if necessary
  • 1 tbsp. light soy sauce
  • pinch of salt ,recommend 1 tsp
  • 1/2 tbsp. black vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 grated garlic
To serve
  1. Add all the seasonings for wonton filling and then mix well. Keep stirring in one direction until the filling becomes slightly sticky. Refrigerate for around 15 minutes for a better flavor (optional).
  2. Assemble wonton one by one.
  3. Tune the sesame paste texture: slightly add light soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and cold water in sesame paste. Stir to combine well. The sesame paste should be running but not thin. So it can cling to the wonton and melt in mouth after biting.
  4. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and then cook the wonton by batches until they float on the surface. Get a large bowl with enough cold water and soak the wonton to make them cooled down quickly.
  5. Darin and place in serving bowls.
  6. To assemble the wonton: drizzle around 2 to 3 tablespoons of sesame mixture, then followed with 1 tablespoon of chili oil. Sprinkle Szechuan peppercorn powder and finally top with scallion and Zha-cai (Szechuan pickled mustard) or you can simply use crushed toasted peanuts.  This recipe can yield 3 bowls of cold sesame wonton.
