Ginger Shrimp Won Tons

I love Won Tons. Both fried and in soup, so when I found these wraps at Safeway, it inspired me to try a couple new recipes. They were located in the vegetarian/tofu area of the produce department and only $2.00. I am using these wrappers to try out with new recipes, so you’ll see me use them often in my next few posts. IMG_7842So for my first experiment with these wraps, I decided to make Ginger Shrimp Won Tons, made about 10-12 Won Tons.

  • 4 Large Tiger Prawns, Uncooked
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp grated ginger or ginger powder
  • 1 tsp diced green onion
  • 1 tsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 egg white

  1. In  a small pan, I fry all of the ingredients on medium until cooked thoroughly.
  2. Then took the mixture and put it in a small food processor and diced small. You can also do this by hand with a knife if preferred.
  3. I arrange my working station, as shown below. I use an brush to put the egg white on the surface of the wrap.
  4. Then put a small amount of the cooked mixture in the middle. Fold in half, bringing the two ends together and pulling the front up tight and closed. It’s supposed to resemble a nurse’s hat.  It’s important not to “stuff” too much in there, as they will explode later. Practice makes perfect.
