Wontons with shrimps

5:40 pm Pastry and desserts

These small crispy wontons resemble Chinese dim sum, but they are baked in the oven. If you think this dish is too expensive, you can easily replace shrimps by chicken breasts or minced meat.

½ pound shrimps, hulled
8 sheet filo pastry
2 clove garlic
2 shallots
1 chili, seeded
1 lime peel
1 inch long fresh ginger piece
2 tbsp fresh coriander

1. Set oven to 200 C (390 F). put garlic, ginger, shallot onions, chili, lime peel and coriander in a blender and mince until you get a paste. Then add shrimps and mince several seconds more.
2. Put one filo pastry sheet on a board and oil it. Then put one more pastry sheet above, oil it as well. Cut the squares 3*3 inches big.
3. Put 1 tsp shrimp paste in the center of each square and make wantons according to the recipe below. Put your wontons on a backing tray and bake about 15 minutes until golden.
4. Serve up shrimp wontons together with small soy sauce dish or sweet chili sauce.
