Wontons for Wonton Noodle Soup
Wonton Noodle soup is a traditional Cantonese meal served as a hearty breakfast or lunch. These wontons, made from seasoned pork and shrimp, are the actual dumplings served with egg noodles and chicken broth. 'Dashi' - or fish flakes - is an optional ingredient, but adds wonderful flavor. If you feel daring, you may try making your own dashi from a fish purchased whole.
Finished wontons should resemble the shape of a nurse's hat or rosebud.
Place whole fish in preheated 350 degree F (180 degrees C) oven until it is slightly smoky and charred. Scrape off any burnt parts and chop coarsely. Store in an air-tight container.
