Ingredients

  • 8 Ounces ground pork
  • 3/4 Teaspoons salt, plus more to taste
  • 3/4 Teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/8 Teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon shaoxing wine
  • 2 Teaspoons oil
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cornstarch
  • 6 Ounces shrimp, chopped
  • 1/2 pack wonton skin (the square-shaped egg wonton skin)
  • 12 Ounces wonton egg noodles
  • 8 Cups high quality chicken broth

Directions

Start by making the filling. Add the pork, 3/4 teaspoon salt, sugar, sesame oil, white pepper, wine, oil, water, and cornstarch to a bowl and whip everything together by hand for 15 minutes, or in a food processor for 5 minutes. You want the pork to look like a paste. Mix in the chopped shrimp.

To make the wontons, take a wrapper, and add only about a teaspoon of filling. Use your finger to coat the edges with water (this helps the two sides seal together), and fold in half so you have a triangle shape. Bring together the two outer corners, and press to seal. Continue assembling until you've used up the filling (this recipe should make about 3 dozen wontons).

To assemble the dish, heat up the chicken broth in a medium pot. Adjust seasoning by adding salt, to taste.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and boil the noodles just until al dente. Divide among 6 bowls. Add the wontons and boil for about 4-5 minutes until they float and the filling is cooked through. Divide wontons among the bowls, and cover with hot broth. Serve!

If you want your soup a little more flavorful, you can also add a couple drops of sesame oil, chopped scallion, and white pepper over the top!

Noodle Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Noodle Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
