Blame it on the holiday season, but I haven’t had much time to cook lately—endless Christmas parties and gift shopping have made my days completely occupied. However, I have to confess that I have been sort of procrastinating in kitchen chores, too. Well, I guess you just have to cut me some slack; after all, it’s that time of year again, so I am merely having fun outside of my kitchen.

Boil the wontons in boiling water for a couple of minutes or until they float to the top or you may also steam the shrimp wontons for about 6-8 minutes. Serve hot with ginger vinegar dipping sauce.
