Pork & Shrimp Won Ton (Part 1 of 2)

This is a simple basic won-ton recipe that I use everytime I make won tons for hot pot, soups, toss noodles~ The recipe makes enough to feed about 6-8 people as a side dish/soup. 🙂 Easy to make, great for freezing and storing.

You will need:

2/3 lb ground pork

8 medium white shrimp

1 – 2 stalks green onions (minced finely)

1 egg

1 teaspoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon fish sauce

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1/8 teaspoon white pepper

Won Ton Skins




1 – Mince shrimp (do not mince finely, leave it in little chunks for more texture to the won ton)


2 – Mix shrimp with pork well


3 – Add green onions and mix well


4 – Add the rest of the ingredients


5 – Let sit for about 20 minutes in the fridge for flavours to combine



Now that we got the filling all ready, here is the simplest way to put together a won ton.

1. Place 1/2 teaspoon of filling in the middle of a wrapper.

2- Fold it in half

3 – Push the left & right ends towards the middle

4 – Pinch top to make it stick

Tadaaa! Recipe makes about 50 wontons.



Serve with tossed egg noodles/ in Chicken soup/ as an addition to your instant noodles.

Tips on how to freeze them

Place in single layer, without them touching on a plate

Place plate in freezer for about 15 minutes

The wontons should be partially frozen. Then place in ziplock bags and back into the freezer. Stores for at least a couple months.

(When I am in a rush, I just arrange them in single layer in the ziplock bag and freeze immediately. Problem with this method is that, the wontons stick together and makes it hard to tear apart when you wanna use them next)
