Homemade Pork & Prawns Wantans Soup

What a simple and hearty Wantans soup!

It’s my 1st time making these Wantans.  The most challenging part is gathering the top of wantans skin. 
Look!  The skin was a little torn.  But it didn’t affect the taste of the wantans.
It’s not difficult to make, it’s just time consuming.  But when you see your family enjoyed eating them, it really worth the time doing it.

Here’s the recipe adapted from 


200g pork mince
70g peeled prawns
1 1/2 tbsp spring onions, finely chopped
2 tsp light soy sauce
A pinch of salt
A pinch of white pepper
1 tsp ginger wine
30 wantan skins (can easily get from supermarket)

Chicken Stock
(1)1.5ltr Chicken Stock (1 used 2 chicken breast meat to make about 1.5 litres of chicken stock

(2)Salt, to taste

(3)2 tbsp spring onions, finely chopped (I also include Chinese parsley)


(1)In a bowl, place the pork mince, prawns, spring onions, soy sauce, white pepper, and ginger wine. Mix well and marinate for 10-15 minutes.

(2)To wrap wantans: Prepare a small bowl of water. Take 1 piece of wantan skin, and place a small mound (roughly 1 tsp) of filling in the centre. Dip your finger into the water, and run it around the edges of the wantan wrapper. Bring the opposite edges together to form a triangle. Gather the top of the wantan skins and seal with more water to form a wantan parcel.

(3)Place chicken stock in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to the boil. Once boiling, add the wantans (cook in 4 batches) and cook until the wantans float to the top, about 1 1/2-2 minutes.

(4)Serve in a small bowl with some chicken stock and garnish with some spring onions.
