Thanks Christy- Tranquility Nail Tech and Esthetician for this yummy Wonton Soup recipe.

wonton soup


30 Wonton skins

1 egg white, lightly beaten

2 T finely chopped scallion, to serve

1 T chopped cilantro leaves or spinach, to garnish



6 oz/175g ground pork, not too lean

8 oz/225 g raw shrimp, shelled, deveined and chopped

½ t finely chopped fresh gingerroot

1 T light soy sauce or liquid amino acids

1 T Rice wine vinegar

2 t finely chopped scallion

Pinch of sugar

Pinch of white pepper

Dash of sesame oil



64 fl oz/2 L/8 cups chicken stock

2 t salt

½ t white pepper



  1. Mix together the filling ingredients and stir well until the texture is thick and pasty.  Set aside for at least 20 minutes.
  2. To make the wontons, place a teaspoon of the filling in the center of a skin.  Brush the edges with a little egg white.  Bring the opposite points towards each other and press the edges together, creating a flower-like shape.  Repeat with the remaining skins and filling.
  3. To make the soup, bring the stock to a boil and add the salt and pepper.  Boil the wontons in the stock for about 5 minutes, or until the skins begin to wrinkle around the filling.
  4. To serve, put the scallions in individual bowls, then spoon in the wontons and soup and top with the cilantro or spinach.
