Directions
1.
For filling, combine shrimp, pork, mushrooms, green onion, pimiento, cilantro, soy sauce, and red pepper. Use half the wontons for soup. Freeze remaining wontons for a second batch of soup.
2.
Top each wonton skin with 1 teaspoon filling. Fold the lower corner of the wonton over the filling and bring its point up; tuck under the wonton's filling. Roll the wonton up slightly to cover the filling, leaving about 1 inch of skin unrolled at the top corner. Moisten a side corner. Grasp corners; overlap them over the filling, attaching moistened corner to other corner.
3.
In a 3-quart saucepan bring 6 cups water to boiling. With a spoon place wontons, 1 at a time, into boiling water; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. (If using frozen wontons, do not thaw; after adding, return water to boiling before simmering.) Drain; rinse with cool water.
4.
Meanwhile, in a 2-quart saucepan combine chicken broth, carrot, green onions, and gingerroot. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 2 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove gingerroot and discard. Stir in sesame oil. Divide wontons among bowls; ladle broth mixture atop. If desired, sprinkle with cilantro.
Make Ahead Tip
  • To freeze, place wontons on a baking sheet in a single layer. Freeze until solid. Place frozen wontons in a freezer bag or container and freeze for up to 3 months.
