  • 1-2 Green Onions, Chopped

  • 2 Teaspoons Ginger Paste

  • 2 Teaspoons Soy Sauce

  • Half a Lime

  • Wonton Wrappers

  • For the Chili Garlic Sauce:

  • 2 Tablespoons Garlic Chili Paste

  • 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce

  • 2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil

  • 1 Tablespoon Black Vinegar

  • 2 Tablespoons Thai Basil, Chopped

  • 1 Tablespoon Cilantro, Chopped

  • Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning, to Taste

  • Clear


  1. Add shrimp, Shaoxing wine, 2 teaspoons soy sauce and 1 teaspoon sesame oil to a blender or food processor. Pulse 2-3 times, or until shrimp is finely chopped and a paste consistency.
  2. Remove shrimp filling and add to a bowl. Add in ginger, green onions and seasoning, and stir into shrimp to combine.
  3. Combine all ingredients for the Chili Garlic Sauce in a bowl and set aside. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  4. Take a wonton wrapper and place about 2 teaspoons of shrimp filling in the middle. Dip a finger into the beaten egg and smear all edges of the wonton wrapper. Fold one side of the wrapper over the other side to form a rectangle. Press the top and side edges to seal. Dip your finger in the egg again and smear onto the bottom left corner edged of the wrapper. Gently twist the bottom right edge of the wrapper on top of the bottom left edge and pinch to seal. Repeat until you’ve used all the shrimp filling.
  5. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once water reaches a rapid boil, add in your wontons. Stir so the wontons don’t stick to the bottom. Let them boil for about 5 minutes or until cooked through. Cut one open after 5 minutes to test.
  6. Drain water from the pot and add wontons to a large bowl. Pour on the sauce and toss until fully coated.
  7. Garnish with chopped basil and cilantro, along with a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Enjoy!
