TGIF it’s time for some Pinterest Productivity! This week I chose the Homemade Wontons with Spicy Sauce pin from my “Yummy” board. I would definitely make this recipe again; the prep was easy, they didn’t take long to cook and they were delicious. I’m a little sensitive to MSG so I left the MSG out of the sauce and didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything. I know a lot of you have this recipe pinned as I’ve seen it pop up on my Pinterest feed, so don’t hesitate any longer and make these wontons this weekend!
Homemade Wontons with Spicy Sauce Recipe via Return to Sunday Supper
Yield: 4 – 6 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutesCook Time: 5 minutesTotal Time: 25 minutes
For the Wontons
Large pot of boiling water.
1/3 pound raw shrimp, washed, deveined, tails removed and finely minced.
12 wonton wrappers, defrosted
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
Dash salt and white pepper
1 egg (for egg wash)
For the Sauce
1/4 cup thin (light) soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Accent
(Accent is a flavor enhancer used in Asian cooking, it’s also known as MSG – I didn’t use any Accent and it was still good)
1 or 2 tablespoons (depending of how much heat you like) hot chili oil
2 scallions (green onions), sliced
Fill a large pot with water and bring it to a boil.
Wash the shrimp, remove the tails, devein and finely mince.
To the shrimp, add 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil, dash of salt and white pepper.
Whisk the egg, and brush the wontons lightly on one side. (This is what is going to seal the wontons).
Evenly divide the shrimp mixture onto the middle of the wontons. Fold them to make a triangle. Press the edges together. Let dry for 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, Accent, and chili pepper with oil.
Place wontons into boiling water and cook until done (about 4 minutes, when the wontons start to float). Remove with slotted spoon.
Serve immediately with the sauce and scallions (green onions) as a garnish.
