A comforting and delicious recipe for shrimp wonton soup that’s not only easy, but healthy and filling with only 110 calories for a huge serving!


INGREDIENTS
  • ¼ lb jumbo cooked shrimp, separated
  • ⅛ cup water chestnuts, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • ½ tbsp soy sauce
  • ¼ tsp sesame oil
  • ½ tsp white sugar
  • 1 tbsp chopped green onion
  • pinch of white pepper
  • 18 wonton skins
  • 48 oz( 1½ quart) low sodium chicken broth
  • 1½ tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • ½ cup snow peas
  • ½ cup shredded carrots


INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Roughly chop the cooked shrimp reserving four of them for garnishing.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the chopped shrimp, water chestnuts, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, chopped green onion, and a pinch of white pepper.
  3. Lay out several wonton skins and place a teaspoon or so of the shrimp mixture in the center. Dip the tip of your finger in a bit of water and dampen the edge of half the wonton. Fold the wonton skin over to cover the filling and use a fork to press down the edges. Repeat till the filling is all used up. (I got 18 wontons).
  4. In a large pot, bring the chicken broth and soy sauce to a low boil. Add in the wontons, snow peas, and shredded carrots. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until the wontons are done and the veggies are cooked, but still crisp. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve immediately garnishing with the reserved shrimp, red pepper flakes, and chopped green onion!
