Shrimp Wonton Instructions

Shrimp wonton noodle soup filling steps
  1. If using a food processor, pulse shrimp until it becomes a paste OR roughly chop shrimp into tiny pieces. Transfer the shrimp to a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Store in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  2. Take a piece of wonton wrapper and add a small amount of wonton filling to the center, dap the wrapper with a small amount of water along the edge then fold it in half into a triangle shape. As you fold, gently press out the air bubbles so the wonton won’t burst. Seal the edges well.
  3. Flip the triangle upside-down, dap one corner with water, then gently fold from the center to bring the two points together. Press to adhere well. Rest it over the sheet pan. Repeat the process to finish the wonton filling.
  4. Place wontons onto a parchment paper lined sheet pan. Freeze for 10 mins.

Freezing, Storing & Cooking Shrimp Wontons

  1. Freeze them on a parchment-lined sheet pan until wontons are frozen solid, then transfer them to an airtight and freezer-friendly bag or container. These usually last for 3 months.
  2. The most common method to cook wontons is boiling for 7 minutes. You can also steam, air fry, deep fry, or pan sear. Add about 2 minutes extra if making them from frozen.
