I love these things. My mom used to make them for me when I was little but she did these with a sweeter filling, but I enjoyed theses too! They taste very similar to shrimp toast. It was a little time consuming to make but well worth it. I followed the instructions except I cooked the pork/shrimp mixture before placing them in the wonton wrapper.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop up shrimp and mix with ground pork, mushrooms, garlic, green onions, mushroom soy sauce, and black pepper.
  2. Scoop a teaspoonful of mixture onto the wrapper.
  3. Pull the edges up and pinch to close making a little bag. Repeat until all the mixture is used up.
  4. Optional: Tie with a chive (*be sure to knot it twice so it doesn’t come apart). If you are using green onions, place them in boiling water for 20 seconds to make more pliable. Cut each green onion into 3-5 thin strips (lengthwise) and tie around the bags.
  5. Heat oil in deep fryer or wok until very hot.
  6. Fry until golden brown. Place on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
  7. Serve with Thai sweet chili sauce.
