Ingredients

  • 250 g ground turkey or chicken
  • 200 g shrimp peeled, deveined and each one chopped into 4-6 pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger finely grated
  • 1-2 green onions finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 30 wonton wrappers approx.
  • 3 litres of turkey stock
  • 3 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
  • 1 teaspoon of ginger finely grated
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • salt if required
  • garnish with 4 green onions sliced thinly on the diagonal

Instructions

  1. Bring the turkey stock, 3 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine, 1 teaspoon grated ginger and 1 minced garlic clove to a boil and allow to simmer for about 20-30 minutes over low heat. This will give you time to prepare the wontons.
  2. Place all the ground turkey, chopped shrimp, 1 tablespoon Shaoxing, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, cloves minced garlic, 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger, 1-2 finely diced green onions and 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil into a bowl and mix together until evenly combined.
  3. Put some water in a small bowl or glass. Using a wet finger, wet the edges around the wonton wrapper to ensure the wonton will stick and seal together when you pinch it.
  4. Place the wonton wrapper in the palm of your hand. Put a teaspoon of the meat mixture in the middle of the wrapper. Bring 2 opposite corners together, making a triangle. Holding the top to the triangle with one hand, pinch together the gaps to completely seal the wonton. Firmly press the edges. Bring the bottom corners together, press together to seal.
  5. Optional: you can add 1 cup of shredded bok choy to the soup and cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Gently add the wontons to the simmering soup. Bring soup to a boil and cook the wontons for about 5 minutes, or until they're cooked and float to the top. Serve immediately and garnish with the sliced green onions

Recipe Notes

This recipe will serve 4 people with about 6 wontons each. I used cooked shrimp, but you can use raw shrimp as well, I find it easier to handle cooked shrimp. I always double this recipe and freeze half on a tray before putting them in a freezer bag. It makes for a quick and easy meal at a later date, especially if using store bought stock. If making with frozen wontons, it will take 7-8 minutes to cook.
