Fried Wontons……………..This is one of my daughter’s favourite starter, as this is free everytime we buy in a famous takeaway shop here in NZ. So we decided to include this on her birthday menu as she loves anything fried and crispy(ooopps, I better watch out the fat/oil contents). Last post, I feature a very healthy vegetable sticks, this time I will be featuring “a not so healthy” option on your party menu. Sorry, it is fried so just take care of the fat and oil contents. (You need to drain it properly)…. But believe me, this is really awesome dude! Are you ready? Here we go………….
Ingredients: makes 60-80 pcs of fried wontons depending on the size
- 350 gms pork minced
- 100 gms small diced and peeled shrimps
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1 medium minced onions
- 1 tsp seasoning soy sauce
- 2 pcs beaten egg
- 1/2 salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients together except shrimp , mix well.
- Form a circle size approx a teaspoon of mixture and wrap over siomai wrapper. makes approx 80 pcs or even more depending on your size. smaller the better as the wonton might open when you fry.
- Heat oil and fry until golden brown. serve with sweet chilli sauce
Siomai……..Just made this recipe as our soup starter for our dinner. Made from my left over pork and shrimp siomai comes this very hot and clear soup. So simple and easy as one-two-three to make. Very best specially this winter season. (ooops!!! winter is just finished here in NZ). So if you are planning for a 3 meal course, this soup might be the simplest way to enjoy if you have some leftover siomai. No siomai, try just the eggs!!!
Ingredients: serves 6-8 persons
- 2 tbsp oil
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 small chopped onions
- 1 liter chicken broth
- 3 pcs fresh eggs
- 1/2 cup chopped onion leeks
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 tsp sesame oil
- left over siomai (see recipe of pork and shrimp siomai)
- fish sauce to adjust your taste
- In a large sauce pan, heat oil and saute garlic and onion. add in broth and bring to boil
- Then add in siomai and crack in eggs, seasoned with salt and pepper and adjust taste by adding fish sauce
- While boiling, pour in left over siomai and add in sesame oil then bring to a boil.
