Wonton Shrimp Soup

IMG_4172

It is chilly outside and hot steamy soup sounded like a great idea. We are big fans of Costco and their recently added organic products. During our last snack time outing to Costco, we have discovered frozen organic wontons. Not only, are they a delicious snack on its own, but including a few of them into this tasty soup sounded too good not to try it. Here is the recipe:

  • 15 wontons
  • 20 shrimp
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 2 carrots (chopped)
  • 4 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1/2 Napa cabbage (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 pkg Yakisoba noodles (any Chinese noodles will do) Costco sells ready to serve Yakisoba noodles
  • 1 bunch cilantro (chopped)
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 chicken bullion cube
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Pepper, salt to taste

Saute onion, carrots, Napa cabbage and garlic in canola and sesame oil until translucent. Add crumbled bullion cube and water, cook for about 10 minutes to develop flavors. During this time, pan fry your wontons (per pkg instructions). I find the wontons to hold up better in the soup, if they are pan fried first and then included in the soup. Pan fry your shrimp in butter or oil (your choice). Time to assemble the soup. Put wontons and chopped cilantro into the soup to heat through for about 2 minutes. Pour soup into bowls, shrimp goes right on top along with extra garnish of cilantro. “Dobrou chut!”
