I give this recipe 4 stars as it is written; however, after following some of the suggestions of the reviewers, I would give this recipe more than 5 stars if I could! As per the reviews, we added soy sauce, grated fresh ginger, and just a drop of sesame oil to further flavor the broth. Per the reviews, we also boiled the wontons first and then added them to the broth to avoid murkiness. Now that we have made this often, we have tried other ground meats - such as ground turkey or ground chicken and have often omitted the shrimp if we do not have any on hand. We cannot honestly state that we notice a large taste difference without the shrimp.
This recipe is amazing and just so versatile! We freeze a big bag of these and either use them in broth, sear them in a pan and then finish off steaming them in the same pan to enjoy the wontons as pot stickers (sear on high for one minute - flipping wontons over to brown each side and then add enough water to just cover the bottom of the pan, cover, and reduce heat for 6-7 minutes), or we encourage our teenager to just make her own broth (usually hot water and a Ramen seasoning packet) and just drop a few frozen wontons in as her own meal. Don't let making homemade wontons intimidate you; we conquered this recipe the first time and just watched a simple video on YouTube for folding techniques. Love love love that my family can now make and customize these and freeze them to use them so many different ways. Yum!!
