What You Need:

1 bag of 16-20 already cooked frozen shrimp

1 bunch of green onion

1/3 cup of white onion

1/3 cup of cabbage

1/3 cup of carrot

1/3 cup of diced green and red pepper

2 cloves of garlic

1/4 cup of white wine

1/4 cup of soy sauce (add to taste)

Pinch of salt and pepper

Pinch of sugar

1 box of regular wheat wonton wrappers


Put the shrimp in a colander and run under hot water for a minute. Then, chop up the shrimp into small pieces. In a food processor, add the shrimp, green onions, garlic, onion, cabbage, carrot, peppers, white wine, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and sugar. Chop together in a pulse. Once all is combined, strain the excess liquid.


Lay out the wonton wrappers down on parchment paper. Stuff them with a tiny amount of filling, meet the corners together to form the shape of a triangle and make a little hat point on each side.

Fry in corn or vegetable oil until brown on both sides.

Makes 20-28 wontons. Serve with soy sauce with a drop of sesame oil and green onion.
