My husband is big fan of Wanton noodles. When we were in a short trip in Penang, we had very nice wanton noodles at a street stall. He seemed to be addicted to wanton noodles. So after we came back in Singapore, I think I can work a bit on wanton recipe.
This time, I used minced chicken instead of minced pork.
For wanton filling:
Minced chicken 200g
shrimps (no shell) 200g ( I put at least 1 whole shrimp in each wanton. You can coarsely chop the shrimps and use less)
Shiitake Mushroom 4 chopped
Water chestnuts 8 ( 3 were blended into paste and the other 5 are chopped into coarse mince)
Chopped ginger 1/2 tsp
Five spice powder 1/2 tsp
Light soy sauce 1 tsp
Salt 1 tsp
Oyster sauce 1 tsp
Black pepper 1/2 tsp
Water 1 tablespoon
Mix all the ingredients above in a big bowl. Stir with chopsticks to combine them all.
Wanton wraps were bought from supermarket.
These are the wantons I made them in gold nugget shape. I made many and put them in a box then put into freezer. So it will be convenient when my husband wants to have wanton. Just take them out from fridge and boil for 8 mins.
Boiling them needs about 8 mins. Place them in chicken soup ( which was made by a whole chicken leg and simmered for at least 30 mins). Garnish with chopped spring onion.
You can see the shrimp inside. Soup is also very nice.
This recipe also works without shrimps. Under this circumstance, If you have wanton fillings left, you can use the left to cook meatball with running egg:
