Wontons with Shrimp and Pork Filling

Wontons with Shrimp and Pork Filling with Chicken Broth
This is a basic recipe for wonton with a pork and shrimp filling. Deep-fry the wonton or boil in soup as desired. I have added the recipe for one of my favorite chicken broths which makes a delicious wonton Soup.
  • Wontons
  • ½ pound boneless lean pork
  • ½ pound shelled and deveined medium shrimp
  • 2- 3 stalks of scallions, thinly chopped
  • 2 slices ginger, or as needed to make 1 teaspoon
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine, dry sherry or rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • A few drops sesame oil
  • Freshly ground white pepper, to taste
  • Wonton wrappers, as needed
  • One egg yolk
  • Broth
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 stalks celery (thinly sliced, about ½ cup)
  • 4 scallions (thinly sliced, white and light-green parts separated)
  • 2 cloves garlic (thinly sliced)
  • 1 piece ginger (peeled and julienned)
  • 1 serrano chile (small, stemmed and thinly sliced, about 1 tablespoon)
  • 2 heads baby bok choy (about 12 ounces, stalks sliced crosswise into ½-inch pieces, leaves left whole)
  • ¾ tsp fish sauce
  • coarse salt
  1. Wontons
  2. In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg and set aside.
  3. Preparing the filling: In a medium mixing bowl, add the pork, shrimp, scallions, minced ginger oyster sauce, soy sauce, rice wine or sherry or rice vinegar, sugar, sesame oil and white pepper.
  4. Wrapping the wontons: Put one wonton wrapper in the palm of your hand positioned as a diamond pointing upwards. Put half a tablespoon of filling in the center. (Do not overfill the wonton because they will fall apart when you cook them.) Using a spoon or your finger, add a thin layer of egg wash alongside the two top edges of the wrapper. Fold the bottom to the top, forming a triangle, pushing out as much air as possible, and then pressing the edges together to seal it. Then add egg wash to the two side tips and overlap one side over the other. The shape will look like a little boat with a pillow of filling in the center.
  5. Alternate method: Place the teaspoon of filling in the middle of the wrapper and twist to seal. The final result should resemble a money bag or drawstring purse.
  6. If you are going to freeze them: Wrap a baking sheet with saran wrap. Put each wonton in a single layer on the baking sheet (without overcrowding them so they don’t get stuck together). Leave the baking sheet in the freezer overnight. In the morning, remove the wontons and put them in a bag and keep them in the freezer. Do not defrost the wontons if you want to boil them, but do defrost them if you want to deep fry them.
  7. Cooking the wontons: You can either boil the wontons or deep-fry them. Here are the instructions for both.
  8. Cooking option 1, boiling the wontons: Bring a large pot of water to a boil over low-medium heat. Add the wontons in the water (making sure there is enough room for them to move about freely) and gently stir every couple of minutes (to ensure the wontons don’t stick to the bottom of the pot) for about 5 to 8 minutes. You will know when they’re done when they float to the top. Check the wontons for doneness. When the wontons are done cooking, drain the pot and then and put the wontons in a bowl. Serve with soy sauce for dipping.
  9. Cooking option 2, deep-frying the wontons: In a wok or a pot, pour enough oil to a depth of 1½ inches, and heat to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Add wontons in small batches to the oil, turning occasionally until they turn a golden brown, about 2 minutes. Remove the wontons with a slotted spoon and drain the oil on paper towels on a plate.
  10. Broth: will serve 4
  11. Combine broth, water, celery, scallion whites, garlic, ginger, and chile in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium, Boil for 5 minutes add bok choy ,16 wontons fresh or frozen cook at simmer until the wontons float to the top of the broth.
  12. Meanwhile, add bok choy to broth. Simmer until just tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in fish sauce; season with salt. Sprinkle with scallion greens.
What to do with excess filling: If you end up with any extra filling, a good way to use it up is to roll about a tablespoon of filling into a ball - sort of like a mini-meatball, and repeat until all the filling is used. You can boil these meatballs in soup or freeze them the same way as you’d freeze wontons to use later.


Here’s a video of how to fold the wontons into the boat shape:


A brief 30-minute swim in the marinade imbues the shrimp with intense flavor—jalapeño, ginger, and garlic lend heat, while garam masala contributes depth. Sparkle comes from a splash of lime juice.

  1. Marinate Shrimp:
  2. Purée all ingredients for marinating shrimp, except shrimp, with ½ tsp salt in a blender until smooth. Pour into a sealable bag, then add shrimp and marinate at cool room temperature, turning bag occasionally, 30 minutes.
  3. Make Chutney While Shrimp marinates:
  4. Toast cumin in a dry small skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  5. Stir together remaining chutney ingredients with ¼ tsp salt, then sprinkle with toasted cumin.
  6. Make Kebabs:
  7. Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over hot charcoal (medium-high heat for gas
  8. Thread 4 shrimp onto each skewer, leaving small spaces between them. Put on a tray.
