Steamed Shrimp Wontons
While many people enjoy crispy fried wontons, many have also asked for a good steamed wonton recipe. I love these shrimp wontons because they include my favorite protein, shrimp.
Shrimp is such a versatile choice for many recipes, and I especially enjoy how they taste in these wontons.
Delicious Shrimp Wontons
I rummaged through my fridge today and found some leftover wonton skins and whipped up these wontons with dipping sauces: ginger vinegar sauce. They were simply delicious.
I love steamed wontons because it makes them extremely juicy, and you can really taste the filling.
Changing Steamed Wontons to Baked or Fried
If you would like to change the shrimp wontons to the popular baked version, you can fold these wontons into triangles and bake them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for around 5-7 minutes on a baking sheet.
You can go ahead and deep fry these wontons too for around 1-2 minutes. Be careful not to burn them, because they fry super fast!
