Excellent! I love this soup, it's my new favorite! I did make a few changes due to what I had on hand: I used mild Italian sausage, casings removed. Therefor, I didn't use the egg or salt and pepper (they didn't need it, sausage is bound and seasoned already). This slightly changes the flavor of the wontons, and I think I will try it again using only the ground pork. I also halved the recipe, and further reduced the sesame oil, which I find very pungent. I can still taste it (I'm eating this as we speak) and enjoy it, but I think the full amount might be overpowering to me. As for assembling the wontons, here are some tips: there is a learning curve...1tbsp of filling was way too much to try to squeeze in there, I used a biggish tsp. and even then they are large to get in your mouth. Use VERY little water to moisten the edges, or they just slide around. Stop caring about trying to make them pretty shapes, and just do triangles if you're all thumbs like me. For those that aren't seafood lovers, leave out the shrimp entirely instead of just not adding it to your own bowl...I can certainly taste the shrimp in the broth (which I love!). I didn't have the peas, so I added extra greens from the bok choy. And extra green onions. Over all, this is a delightful dish, thanks for sharing! PS- thank you to the reviewer who advised boiling the wontons in their own pot...BUT if you do this step, do not leave them sitting in a wire colander...they stick, lol.
