  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped green onion
  • 1/2 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup ground pork
  • 1/2 cup chopped shrimp
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper powder
  • ½ tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce

  1. To make the filling: In a large bowl, well combine all the ingredients together. Then stir your meat filling in one direction until the filling becomes sticky.
  2. To assemble the wontons: Put the wonton wrapper in the center of the left hand. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of meat stuffing (or slightly more if you want)onto the center of the wrapper. Moisten the edges of the wonton wrappers with water. Fold one corner of the wrapper over the opposite corner to make a triangle just like the picture shows. Hold the wrapper with both hands, curl the corner on the right hand in firstly and then the curl the corner on the left hand to seal with another corner. You can also change the sequence. But make sure that you press them firmly.
  3. To prepare your serving bowls: in separate serving bowls, mix all the seasonings and set aside.
  4. Boil water in a wok. Put the wonton in to cook for about 5 minutes.And add your vegetable leaves prepared to cook in the last 1 minute.
  5. scoop around 1/2 bowl of the boiling water in serving bowl (or you can use stock), and then place wonton in too.
Recipe Notes

Even with water, the soup tastes good. But you can use chicken or pork stock to replace water.
