Cantonese Wonton Noodle Soup is such a basic, no-brainer bowl of noodles that you’ll find at most Cantonese restaurants. But if you’re not near a Chinatown or Cantonese place, you’ll definitely want to give it a try at home. It’s so easy to put together!This recipe is courtesy of
wonton soup
  • 8 ounce ground pork
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon shaoxing wine
  • 2 teaspoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 6 ounce shrimp, chopped
  • 1/2 pack wonton skin (the square-shaped egg wonton skin)
  • 12 ounce wonton egg noodles
  • 8 cup high quality chicken broth
  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. To assemble the dish, heat up the chicken broth in a medium pot. Adjust seasoning by adding salt, to taste.
  4. 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!
  5. 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!
