Ingredients

8 cups chicken stock

2 garlic cloves, crushed

2 spring onions (scallions, plus extra finely sliced spring onions to serve

4cm piece ginger, sliced

1 tbsp dried shrimp (optional)

1 tbsp light soy sauce

sea salt

 

Pork & Prawn Wontons:

150g pork mince

150g minced prawns

1 tbsp finely grated ginger

1/8 tsp ground white pepper

½ tsp sesame oil

¼ cup chicken stock

2 tsp cornflour (cornstarch)

1 egg

40 wonton wrappers

Instructions

STEP 1
Place the chicken stock, garlic, spring onions, ginger, dried shrimp and soy sauce in a large pot. Place over high heat and bring a boil. Then reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 20-30 minutes.

 

STEP 2
In the meantime, make your wontons. In a large bowl add the pork, prawns, ginger, pepper, sesame oil, chicken stock, cornflour and egg. Use chopsticks or a spoon to vigorously mix the ingredients together until well combined and sticky. Place a heaped teaspoon of mixture into the centre of a wonton wrapper. Moisten the edges with water. Fold the wrapper over the filling to form a triangle. Moisten the 2 side points of the triangle and then bring them together and press firmly. Place the wonton onto a large tray and repeat the process with the remaining filling and wrappers.

 

STEP 3
You’ll have far more wontons than you need for 4 serves. If you’re not using all the wontons immediately, freeze them on the tray. Then when they’re firm, transfer them to smaller bags/containers. You can cook them from frozen.

 

STEP 4
Strain the stock through a fine mesh sieve and pour it back into a clean saucepan. Season with salt to taste. Keep warm.

 

STEP 5
Bring a separate pot of water to the boil and cook the wontons in the boiling water for 3-4 minutes or until the filling is cooked. Use a slotted spoon to drain the wontons and divide among serving bowls. Ladle over the warm broth and sprinkle with finely sliced spring onions.
