Mom's Wonton

Recipe by  

"I recently learned to make homemade won tons from my mother. They can be deep fried as an appetizer, but I prefer them in a rich, homemade chicken broth with baby bok choy or other leafy greens. Extras will freeze well for later enjoyment."

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook the ground pork over medium heat until no longer pink.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shrimp, ground pork, green onions, ginger, and water chestnuts. Mix in the cornstarch, garlic salt, and sugar. Mix in the dry sherry, chili oil, soy sauce, and sesame oil.
  3. Place about one teaspoon of the mixture in the center of each won ton wrapper. Bring points of the wrapper together (in a triangular shape) and pinch the edges, sealing them closed with egg whites.
  4. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to boil. Carefully place won tons into boiling water without crowding. (Work in batches if necessary.) When the wontons float to the surface, add a cup of cold water and allow the water to come to a boil again. Then remove from the boiling water.

These are ok, but they're certainly one of the least flavorful wontons I've had. If serving as a fried appetizer rather than in a flavorful broth they will require a strongly flavored sauce to accompany them. The egg white is really not necessary, wontons can be sealed just by wetting the edges of the wrapper.

I thought these were flavorful and delicious. I used Italian ground pork because it was what I had on hand and pickled ginger (from the Japanese market) instead of fresh. I fried these is a shallow pan with olive oil. After using up one package of won-tons there was still about half the filling left. I used it to make the most AMAZING fried rice. Awesome!
