    Several dashes toasted sesame oil

    Fresh cilantro (optional)
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.
