  • Filling: Combine all ingredients for filling and refrigerate.
  • Sauce: Combine all ingredients for sauce and set aside.
  • Fill a small bowl with water, set aside.
  • Dust a platter or baking sheet liberally with cornstarch. (This will prevent filled wontons from sticking, prior to cooking.).
  • On a cutting board place the wonton wrappers, three at a time, side by side.
  • Into the centre of each one, place about 1 teaspoon of the shrimp filling.
  • Using a small pastry brush, paint two opposite edges of the wonton wrappers with water.
  • Fold the wrapper over so that the ends meet.
  • Gather the edges together like a purse, ruffling the edge. Pinch tightly to ensure it is sealed together.
  • Place on cornstarch dusting baking sheet.
  • Repeat until all filling is used up.
  • Heat a skillet with 2 tablespoons (25 mL) vegetable oil.
  • Place the wontons in the hot oil for about a minute or until browned on the bottom.
  • Add sauce and put the lid on, reduce heat to low.
  • Cook for 1 more minute with the lid on and the heat turned off.
  • Let Stand 1 minute with heat off.
