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.

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!

Awesome and easy recipe
We made these last night! We chose to fry them and the filling was sooooo good. We were utilizing some leftover shrimp so we did not make the full recipe but I very much wish we had. It’s definitely going to be a new staple in the house.
That’s awesome please try more recipes on my site, they are all good!
These were great! The dipping sauce was outrageous! Next time I’ll add more scallions to the mix..but we thoroughly enjoyed them.
I would like to make these in a few days and live the way you wrapped the wonton in this photo. I plan on steaming mine. Could you explain a bit as to how you closed it? Just a bit of egg wash at the top and twist and pinch it closed? Thank you!
Can extra wontons be frozen after made. And do I need to thaw before cooking?
Yes, you can freeze these shrimp wontons.
You can cook from frozen, if deep frying just cook for an extra minute or two
Hi. I also want to freeze these. Should I cook them and then freeze or freeze them before cooking? TY!
I found wonton wrappers in the vegetable section at my local grocery store in Delaware. I took a photo but can’t paste:(
