Shrimp Wonton Soup

I’m convinced that soup is the most delicious food around the globe. Simple and humble, but loaded with powerful powerhouses that nourish the body and soul.

What could soup improve? By adding delicious dumplings stuffed with perfectly chopped shrimp and delicious spices!

What is Wonton Soup?

Wonton soup is a Chinese soup made from chicken broth and wontons filled with fillings.

The soup is a simple chicken bullion broth, which is flavorful and rich with some spring onion. Incorporating spring onions enhances the soup’s flavor and adds a great flavorful twist.

Wontons can be described as the Chinese equivalent to Italian ravioli or tortellini: delicious dough wrapped around a seafood or meat filling.

Wontons can be filled with beef as well as chicken and shrimp. Shrimp is a great choice because it has a delicate seafood taste that perfectly matches the warming chicken broth.

They’re firm but soft and juicy. They are sprinkled with chopped spring onions.

They are extremely slippery thin, and soft. Wontons are extremely popular as snacks, a side dish, or even food items.

It is easy to locate wonton wrappers in the market, or you can create your own.

How To Make Wontons At Home

Wrappers for wontons that are available in stores are an excellent time-saver; however if you’d like to make your own, here’s the recipe for making it easy:

  1. Combine 2 cups of the flour along with 1/4 tsp salt into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add 1 egg and 1/2 cup of water, and mix until the dough is firm.
  3. Place the dough onto a floured kitchen surface and then knead it until the dough is smooth.
  4. Cover the dough with a moist cloth and allow it to rest in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  5. Dividing the dough into three pieces.
  6. Sprinkle the surface with cornstarch before rolling out the dough into a 20×10-inch rectangle.
  7. Cut 5-inch wontons, then place them on a table.
  8. Repeat the process with the rest of the dough.

It is possible to freeze wrappers of wontons; Just make sure you dust them with cornstarch to ensure they don’t get stuck together.

How To Make Shrimp Wonton Filling

  • The process begins by selecting the protein you want to use. I have decided to share my shrimp wontons because I find them to be the best. Choose shrimps that have been deveined and peeled, and ensure that you chop them up finely.
  • The seasonings you use are your most trusted all-time friend. I use ginger spring onions, soy sauce, and chicken bouillon powder. These are my secrets to making the wontons irresistible.
  • Incorporate some cornstarch into your shrimp. Mixing a little cornstarch in your shrimp will help them stay together and make the inside wontons soft. This is the key to succulent and soft wontons.

How to Fold Wontons

There are a variety of ways to fold wontons. No, which method you decide the fold, it’s simple!

Here’s the way I like folding wontons:

  • Moisten the edges of the Wilton. I dip my finger into the water and then draw lines around the edges.
  • The shrimp mixture should be placed in the middle of the wonton wrapper.
  • Make triangles out of the wonton and seal them by pinching the edges.
  • Take two triangle corners and pin them in the wonton.
  • Here you are; the first wonton you’ve ever seen has been folded!

If you’ve got lots of wontons to fold, begin a fold-and-folding event. My family and friends often come together to create a huge batch of wontons in order to create a large pot of delicious soup.

It’s a time of bonding with lots of laughter, and at the end, we all are rewarded with a tasty wonton soup.
