Great appetizer for a party or holiday dinner! I used the smaller wonton wrappers and ended up making about 36 smaller bundles. Per the reviewer that said it felt like it was missing something, I made sure to season the shrimp as I was cooking it to prepare it for the recipe. I personally sautéed them in sesame oil and seasoned with some garlic salt and ground ginger. I recommend seasoning the shrimp to your taste preferences before chopping them and adding them to the recipe. The result was that the dish didn’t seem like it was missing anything at all. Read More
