"These are a bit time consuming to make, but so very worth the effort. The filling is very easy to make and very flavorful. It's the folding the dumplings that takes the most time. These are wonderful with thew sauce but equally good without and served as won ton."

Step 1

Filling: Combine all ingredients for filling and refrigerate.

Step 2

Fill a small bowl with water, set aside.

Step 3

Dust a platter or baking sheet liberally with cornstarch. (This will prevent filled wontons from sticking, prior to cooking.).

Step 4

On a cutting board place the wonton wrappers, three at a time, side by side.

Step 5

Into the centre of each one, place about 1 teaspoon of the shrimp filling.

Step 6

Using a small pastry brush, paint two opposite edges of the wonton wrappers with water.

Step 7

Fold the wrapper over so that the ends meet.

Step 8

Gather the edges together like a purse, ruffling the edge. Pinch tightly to ensure it is sealed together.

Step 9

Place on cornstarch dusting baking sheet.

Step 10

Repeat until all filling is used up.

Step 11

Heat a skillet with 2 tablespoons (25 mL) vegetable oil.

Step 12

Place the wontons in the hot oil for about a minute or until browned on the bottom.

I added cream cheese to the shrimp mixture and made kind of like Crab Rangoons. They were delicious!

Great as an appetizer like we had Christmas Eve, but also great for lunch with Fried Rice! Thai Sweet Chili Sauce is what we dipped ours in. So darn good you will be fighting over the last one!
