Wonton Soup

Prep: 1 hour

Cook: 15 minutes

Delicious Wonton soup to 'touch the hearts' of your loved ones!

Filling

  • 150g Raw tiger prawns

  • 100g Pork Mince (or turkey mince)

  • 10-15 Chinese Chives

  • 2 Chinese mushrooms (soaked in hot water overnight)

  • 1 clove of garlic

  • 5 slices ginger

  • 2 spring onions

  • 1 handful coriander

  • 15-20 Wonton pastries (we recommend the fresh ones)

Marinade

  • 2 Tbsp light soy sauce

  • Pinch of sugar

  • Sesame oil to cover

Soup

  • 3 slices ginger

  • 3 tbsp oyster sauce

  • 200ml of chicken stock

  • 2 spring onions

Preparation

  1. Finely chop the chives, garlic, 3 slices of ginger, 1 spring onion and coriander and place in a large prep bowl.

  2. Finely dice the mushrooms and prawns and add to the prep bowl with the pork mince.

  3. Season with soy sauce, a pinch of sugar and cover with sesame oil.

  4. Mix well.

Wrapping

  1. Place 1 teaspoon of filling in the centre of each pastry, wet all sides of the pastry with cold water.

  2. Fold the bottom corner over the filling to the top corner and press the pastry down to seal all sides (to form a triangle)

  3. Holding the base of the filling with your thumbs, pull the 2 corners of the triangle towards each other (in the school we like to call this the 'Dark Knight Rising' as it looks roughly like a Batman shape).

  4. Overlap the ends and press together to form a 'gold ingot/ trough shape'. Set aside and fold the rest of the wontons in the same way.

Cooking

  1. Lightly fry 2 slices of ginger and 1 spring onion in a deep pan on medium heat

  2. Add oyster sauce and then pour in chicken stock.

  3. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes

  4. Keep on a rolling boil and add wontons to the coup

  5. Boil for 3-5 minutes until all wontons are floating, then add the noodles to reheat.

  6. Serve with a sprinkle of spring onion or coriander to garnish
