Wontons & Short Soup...

Posted January 7th, 2011 by Rob Bob : )»

Had a bit of a sad day yesterday so thought we would treat the family to a few favourite dishes, Short soup, Fried Wontons & Rocky Road...

Wontons...

250g minced pork

250g Green Prawn meat

1Tbsp Soy sauce

1Tbsp Chinese rice wine

1Tbsp Oyster sauce

1 tsp Sesame oil

2 Shallot whites

50 Square Wonton wrappers

Place all but the Wonton wrappers into a food processor on high until combined

Place a small tsp of mixture into a wrapper then wet the edge of half the wrapper, fold & seal the edges

Wet one corner of the folded edge then wrap the opposite edge to seal on the moistened corner to form what B calls a "Belly button"... (A video link will be added at the end of this post to show the steps...)

Place the finished Wonton onto a tray until ready to cook in boiling water for 5 minutes or fry in a HOT Wok/deep fryer until golden brown...

Left, Boiled... Right, Fried...

Short Soup...

Tonight I made the easiest of soups...

1litre Campbells Chicken stock

1litre water

1 Tbsp soy sauce

1-2 tsp Sesame oil

3 stalks of Celery, sliced finely

12 large Snow Peas, sliced finely

1 large Kohlrabi, julienned

2 med Banana Chillies quartered lengthways & sliced thinly...

Bring stock, water & Soy sauce to the boil in a pot

Place desired amount of boiled Wontons into bowl & cover with prepared Veggies

Just before serving, stir the Sesame oil through soup then ladle over veggies & Wontons

I like to add the sliced greens of shallots over the top as well....

This was the tastiest Wontons/Short soup combination we have made & is just as good, if not better than any we have bought at a restaurant Me thinks...

The Rocky road was made from a block & a half of melted Whittaker's toasted coconut chocolate, 1 cup of Jelly Beans & 1 1/2 cup of Cashews...

The Video on how the Wontons are made can be found here....
