I found this recipe to be comparable to PF CHANG's!!!! I make these steamed shrimp wonton wraps as appetizers, served with a soy sauce and they disappear fast. Really easy to make, throw everyting in a food processer makes them come together in no time. You'll want to double this recipe, your guest will want more than one ;)
- 1⁄2 lb raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 tablespoon finely minced carrot
- 1 tablespoon finely minced green onion
- 1⁄2 teaspoon finely minced garlic
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sugar
- 10 wonton wrappers
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon green onion, chopped (green part only)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon chili oil (or mix olive and hot sauce)
- Filling Prep:.
- Puree raw shrimp in food processor until a smooth paste forms.
- Add carrot, green onion, ginger, garlic, salt, sugar and pulse a couple of times.
- Measure a heaping Tbls of filling into the center of wonton wrapper, brush beaten egg on top of the four edges and bring corners together and press to seal. Let sit in refrigerator for 10 min so that the egg glue sets.

- Serve with Sauce:.
- Make sauce by simmering ingredients over medium heat for 1-2 minutes, remove from heat and set aside.
- Delicious served hot or cold.
I doubled the recipe. I omitted the salt. I think that next time I'll use less ginger. I cooked them in my steamer machine. I made the sauce the next day to go with the leftovers we had :) The sauce tastes great. For a first time doing shrimp dumplings, it was great. I'll probably do it again :) Thanks V.
