Wonton 雲吞 ,"Everyday Pork And Prawns Mince" Recipe 1
I always have some marinated minced pork in my fridge (I called it my "everyday pork and prawns mince") and of course different dumpling skins and asian greens as well. So to have a "meal in a flash" like this takes basically minutes. This mince recipe is really versatile, you'll notice how often I use it in the future with minor changes to it. You need 10 to 12 pieces each.
chopped spring onions
asian greens ( choysum, bokchoy or gailan ) washed and cut into bite size pieces
Gather all edges together to form a plump dumpling.
You'll need 10 to 12 wantons each as a light lunch.
In a pot of boiling water, boil wantons til they float to the surface, takes about 5 to 7 minutes.
Drain wantons, place it in a warm bowl with blanched asian greens of your choice and serve hot with cut chilies and soy.
Often I have them "dry" with a drizzle of soy, dark soy, white pepper and chili oil.
