    Rasa, these look gorgeous. I’m actually leaving for Hong Kong this week and the first place i’m hitting up is my favorite wonton noodle joint. i’ve thought about them ever since i was there last year. nice job.

  14. Ben says:

    I must say you take very nice pictures. What equipment do you use?

  15. Rasa Malaysia says:

    Eatdrinknbmerry – Hong Kong has killer shrimp wontons and they are real (meaning pure shrimp goodness!). I also love the wonton noodles there…they are the best. Have a good trip and eat well!

    Ben – thanks. I use Canon Powershot SD450 Digital Elph Point-and-Shoot. No, I do not have those fancy DSLR. Hehe. :)

  16. Keropok Man says:

    Hi RM,

    Your wonton seems a bit “botak”, you snipped off the excess skin at the top?

    Aiyoyo, I just remembered I have a pack of wantan skins in my fridge and they have been left untouched for a month! oops. They were vacuum packed, so I hope they are still ok. hehe…

  17. Rasa Malaysia says:

    Keropok Man,

    No, they are not botak..the skin at the top is there…just that I filled the wontons with loads of shrimp so they look like they don’t have that much excess skin. :P

    Hi
    I tried to cook the wantoon yesterday. Yes, so yummy. Yum Yum Yum. However i din’t use the water chestnuts. I replace it with Jicama( 沙葛( chinese) @ sengkuang, mengkuang, bengkuang (Malay), man kaew (Thai).
    Hard to get fresh chestnuts at here and of course, i dont like the can chestnuts sell in asian grocerry. I prefer to choose something fresh.
    Malaysian always use Jinama to cook spring roll and wantoon as well. Because it is much more cheaper than water chestnuts and it is so easier to peel and chopped.

  19. sugarlaws says:

    this looks heavenly. absolutely delicious!

  20. Salt N Turmeric says:

    Shrimp wonton is now my family’s favourite thanks to your easy shrimp wontons recipe.

  21. Pamela says:

    Great recipe. I’ve bookmarked you! Awesome site :)

  22. Kevin says:

    These were fantastic! Thanks for the recipe.

  23. Naouar says:

    These look absolutely tasty! I love shrimp and would love to make this recipe as soon as possible. Before I do, I have a question. Can I leave the rice wine out or do you have a good substitute? I don’t drink nor cook with alcohol, because I’m a Muslim. Hope to get a reply real soon, because I’m starving for these shrimp wontons.

  24. fan tzeen says:

    i just made this tonight and i love it!! thank you so much for your recipe! reminds me of being in the streets of hong kong : ) such a treat to realize that this ‘eating out’ food can be made at home too :D a slight addition i made- i simmered the shrimp heads and shells, then strained them out, and boiled the wontons w/ noodles in that red-colored soup :)

  25. These look fantastic, can’t wait to try them, thanks for the recipe

    Jack

  26. Love Rasa Malaysia Recipes! says:
