  1. WONTONS:.
  2. Finely chop the shrimp. Put them in a bowl and stir in the garlic, scallion, soy sauce, fish sauce, cilantro and egg yolk.

Bring the 2 bottom corners of the triangle around to meet in the middle, securing with a little egg white to hold in place.

  6. Place the stock, fish sauce, soy sauce, and rice wine in a large pot and bring to a boil. Add the chilies and scallions. Drop the wontons into the pot and simmer for 4-5 minutes until thoroughly heated.
  7. Serve the soup and wontons in small bowls, garnish with fresh cilantro leaves sprinkled on top just before serving.

I made just the soup for some pork wontons. I made a double batch which was enough broth to cook about 30 wontons. Used half the chilies and took out most of the seeds and that was a mild-medium spiciness, good for our family. I also used pork bone broth. Worked great.
