Create Your Own Wonton Fillings

After making a number of steamed wonton recipes, there will come a time when you wish to create your own wonton fillings. Although you can use pretty much any kind of meat, poultry or fish in your wonton filling, it is important to grind or chop it as finely as you can. You need your ingredients to be very small for wonton fillings, so you can mix everything together better. Anything which is not cut into small enough pieces means you risk the wonton wrapper coming apart while they’re being cooked and then the filling will leak out which obviously you don’t want to happen.

Create Your Own Wonton Fillings: What to Use

Throw some finely chopped or minced vegetables into your wok and cook them over a high heat. It is important to get as much of the water content out as possible, so squeeze the greens. Add ginger and green onions for a nice Asian taste and add your meat. Stir-fry for a few minutes, then add salt, pepper, soy sauce, sesame oil, Shaoxing rice wine, some cilantro, and a little pinch of white sugar or artificial sweetener.

You might have to add a little water if the filling is too crumbly. Let the filling sit for half an hour, then use it to fill your wonton skins and cook them however you like.

You can adapt this recipe when learning the ways to create your own wonton fillings. You don’t have to use meat or fish. Use any vegetables you like, and you don’t have to use all these suggested seasonings either.

Prefer a sweet filling? Then how about banana wontons with chocolate dipping sauce or applesauce with nuts or another fruity variation? Consider chocolate or seasonal berries. This is just to give you an idea of how easy it is to create your own wonton filling recipes.

  • Pork and Beef Crackslaw with Shredded VeggiesPork and Beef Crackslaw with Shredded Veggies
    This pork and beef crackslaw recipe is made using a combination of pork and beef. Although you can make crackslaw with any kind of ground meat (including poultry if you wish) I find that combining pork with beef gives a pleasing result. The pork is juicy and the beef has its own distinctive flavor. They just combine well, especially when making something like pork and beef crackslaw. Here in Holland you can’t buy ground pork by itself (at least not in my local store) which is why I use the half and half mixture quite a lot. Yes I could grind my own pork but I haven’t yet done that. I do have a meat grinder attachment on my food .....
