DIRECTIONS

  • Chop the shrimp very fine using a knife or the food processor. Just be careful not to grind too too fine.
  • Mix together the pork, shrimp, scallions, cilantro, fish sauce, salt, cornstarch, egg,sesame oil, water chestnuts. and ginger (I use my hands).
  • Form the mixture into 1-2 inch balls and place on wax papper, parchment or a platter.
  • Put one ball in the middle of a wonton wrapper and gather the wrapper around the ball leaving the top open.
  • Kind of give it a "waist".
  • Steam in a bamboo steamer for about 5 to 6 minutes.
  • May be frozen after steamed and cooled.
  • To reheat I put them in a large skillet with some water or resteam.
  • Some people boil these but I have never had much luck with that.
  • I serve with several dipping sauces of varying heat.
