  • 40 wonton wrappers
  • 1 lb ground lean pork
  • 1/2 cup water chestnuts, chopped finely
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 green onions, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped shrimp
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp minced cilantro
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 1  egg
  • oil

In a large frying pan, heat oil. Quickly sauté cabbage, carrot, ginger, garlic, water chestnuts, pepper, and soy sauce until vegetables slightly softened. Remove from heat and cool.

In a large bowl combine pork, shrimp, green onions, cilantro, egg, and cooked vegetables. Mix well. Brush wonton wrappers with water, and fill with about 2 tsp filling. Seal, and fold in half. Pinch corners together to form wonton.

Prepared wontons can be deep fried and served with Thai Chili sauce, or boiled in vegetable stock until they float.
