Wonton Dressed With Chili Oil 紅油抄手 - "Everyday Pork And Prawns Mince" Recipe 5

It has been a while since I last posted anything using my beloved everyday pork and prawn mince. In the coming days I will show you a few more ways of using that extremely versatile tummies' kitchen staple.

First up is wonton dressed with chili oil - a popular northern Chinese snack that is also my favourite standby lunch. It takes minutes to prepare and will keep you full and satisfied until dinner time.

P.S If you prefer your wonton in a broth with some vegetables instead, please click here

recipe per serve
you'll need;
some everyday pork and prawns mince
10 to 12 wonton wrappers
1 tbs of chili oil with sediments
2 tbs of light soy
1 tsp of sesame oil
chopped spring onions (optional)

Place 1.5 tbs of the filling in the middle of the wrapper...

gather all edges together to form a plump dumpling, repeat with the rest of the wrappers.

Mix the chili oil, soy and sesame oil in a bowl and set aside.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add in the wontons, they are done when float to the surface (takes 5 to 7 minutes)

Remove dumplings with a slotted spoon and add them to the bowl and mix well, scatter with some chopped spring onions if using.


  1. Oh wow. This would be phenomenal.
    I am going to make it very very soon.

  2. I normally have my wontons with broth but I think I will try this out soon!

    FireWire®'s flexible cable style skewer allows you to effectively use the space on your grill
    Secures more than twice as much food per kabob than a straight skewer
    Never handle the food twice to marinate--simply marinate in the bag while skewered on the Fire Wire
    Innovative stainless steel design stays cool, allowing you to turn or remove food from the grill without using tools.

  5. Hi. My son loves dumplings. When we were in Hong Kong, he had them for breakfast! So I decided to make them using your recipe. It's the first time I have made dumplings. They were delicious. My son said they were just like the ones in Hong Kong. Thank you. Michael. Melbourne, Aus.

    1. Thanks Michael! I am glad the dumplings came out well :)
