Spicy Wonton Soup

  • Prep Time 0:25
  • Cook Time 0:15
  • Estimated Cost $10.50

It's a cold, blustery day here in San Francisco. The wind is whips through the trees, smacking residents in the face. The rain (which, yes, we do need) shows no signs of stopping.

It's a perfect day for hot, spicy wonton soup. I made this with shrimp dumplings, but it would also be delicious with last week's gyoza (drop them into the soup instead of frying). 


* 2 tsp vegetable or coconut oil Pantry
* 4 cloves garlic, chopped, divided Pantry
* 1 small (1") piece ginger, peeled, minced, and divided $0.50
* 3 tbsp fish sauce $2.50 for a 12-oz bottle
* soy sauce Pantry
* 1/2 lb raw, peeled, deveined shrimp, chopped finely $4
* 1 green jalapeño, finely minced $0.25
* 1 medium shallot, minced $0.25
* 4 green onions, sliced (reserve a few pinches for garnish) $1 for a bunch
* about 20 small, round wonton wrappers $2 for a 12-oz. package

Recipe Serves 4


  1. Heat oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. 
  2. Add half of the garlic and half of the ginger and cook for 1 minute, stirring. 
  3. Add the fish sauce, 3 tbsp soy sauce and 6 cups of water. Stir well, and taste. Add a touch more soy sauce if it's not salty enough for you (or a touch more water, if it tastes too salty for you). 
  4. Cover, increase heat to high, and bring to a boil. Once it boils, reduce heat to medium, and let simmer while you prepare the wontons. 
  5. In a mixing bowl, combine the remaining garlic and ginger, the shrimp, the jalapeño, the shallot and the green onions. 
  6. Add 1 tbsp soy sauce and stir well to combine. 
  7. To roll the wontons, brush the edges of a won ton skin lightly with water (use a clean finger or a small pastry brush). 
  8. Place about 3/4 tsp of the shrimp mixture in the center of the wrapper. 
  9. Fold the wrapper in half and make 5-6 small pleats as you seal the wrapper together, pinching gently to ensure total closure. 
  10. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers, until all the wontons are made. Add the prepared wontons to the simmering broth. 
  11. Cook for 7-8 minutes, until the wrappers are no longer doughy. 
  12. Divide between bowls (make sure each bowl gets an even number of wontons) and garnish with the reserved green onions. Serve immediately.

You really seem to dig the pre-made wonton/dumpling wrappers. Do you have a favorite? Do you make homemade wrappers?

Looks great! This is exactly the kind of thing I eat when it’s rainy out and I’m feeling lazy—certainly great for this week in the Bay Area. :)
