Shrimp Wontons

For me, at the very least, there is no better comfort food than a bowl of home made soup. With the help of a few packaged store bought items that is. Still, soup is the food of all warm and loving people.

The packaging says it expires 30 Dec 2009, this picture was taken back in Sept. 09, it's just taken me awhile to post this!

Very easy:
1/2 lb peeled shrimp
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cornstarch
2 tbsp wonton soup mix
30 or so wonton wrappers (they come in pack of 50's)
optional : bok choy, mushrooms, spinach, I put frozen veggies in my soup.

Very easy.
Chop into small pieces
In a bowl, mix shrimp with black pepper and corn starch

Take a wonton wrapper and scoop a teaspoonful onto the wrapper.

Like so.. maybe situate the filling to one half of the wrapper if it is easier to work with.

Have a little bowl of water handy. Dip your finger into the bowl and run your finger along the edges of half of the wrapper.

Carefully fold in the edges making a few pleats. You want the dumplings to be tight but try not to rip the pastry. It is delicate. Boil 4 cups of water and stir in the wonton soup mix. This way your soup will be ready when your wontons are done.

When you've completed your wontons. Slide them into the boiling soup. Shrimps do not take a long time, a minute and a half I think. I added a cup of frozen veggies into the hot soup for a more nutritious soup. Enjoy!
