WONTONS (雲吞) | MADE WITH LAU
Provided by: Made With Lau
Total time: 60 minutes
Prep time: 50 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
|14 oz wonton wrappers|
|12 oz pork shoulder|
|4 oz shrimp|
|2 pieces green onion|
|2 tbsp cornstarch|
|1 tsp salt|
|1 tsp sugar|
|0.5 tsp white pepper|
|1 tbsp oyster sauce|
|2 tbsp water|
|1 tsp chicken bouillon|
|1 tbsp sesame oil|
|1 tsp cornstarch|
|1 dash white pepper|
- We’ll chop our green onion into small pieces. Most (or all of it) will go into the filling, but we can optionally save some for garnish later.
- We’ll start by cutting our pork shoulder into slices, then into strips, and then into small bits. We don’t want to mince them excessively into fine bits like our fish ball recipe – we want a bit of chewiness to it.
- Assuming the shrimp you bought was peeled + deveined, we’ll chop our shrimp into roughly fingernail-sized bits.
- Before we marinate the pork, we’ll want to squeeze as much water out of it as we can. Press the pork firmly against the colander repeatedly.
- Add the shrimp and green onions to the bowl but DON’T MIX them together yet. We’ll cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the filling for at least 30 minutes to let the meat absorb the marinade. If you start folding immediately, then the wrappers will be too wet.
- Wet a spoon with some water, and proceed to mix the pork, green onions, and shrimp together for about 30-60 seconds until everything is evenly mixed.
- In general, as long as your filling is tasty and the wrapper isn’t breaking or falling apart, then my dad says not to stress too much about the wrapping.
- For the second method, all we need is a spoon. After putting about a teaspoon of filling in the center of the wrapper, we’ll press our thumb and index fingers into a hole and drape the wrapper over the center of hole.
- After folding, you can cook them immediately and skip this part.
- Next, we’ll bring a pot of water to a boil to start cooking our wontons.
- We’ll transfer the wontons out of the pot to stop them from cooking. Call your loved ones over! It’s time to eat 🙂
