"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Emmie Briscoe


1 package of wonton wrappers
1 lb of ground pork or ground turkey
tsp salt
tsp white pepper
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp Chinese cooking wine
1 tbsp minced ginger
tsp Chinese 5 Spice Powder
OPTIONAL: 2 green onions, finely chopped

4 cups Chicken Broth
Sliced fresh ginger
1 tsp light soy sauce
tsp sesame oil
Baby Bok Choy or Broccoli to add into the broth
Chopped Green Onions

1. Combine all ingredients for pork or turkey filling, mixing well. Let sit in the fridge for about 15-30 minutes to allow flavours to combine.
2. To wrap wontons: place about 1 2tsp of meat mixture in the center of a wonton wrapper. Begin to fold in half, using your finger lightly brush water on the inside edges of the wonton. Lightly press to seal edges together. Bring 2 corners (on the same side) of folded wonton together and pinch to seal, making a dumpling shape. Continue wrapping all of the wontons.
3. Prepare broth (below) before cooking wontons. Put all broth ingredients into a pot and bring to a light boil. Keep simmering and add in bok choy or broccoli a few minutes before serving to allow it to cook/steam.
4. To cook wontons: Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add wontons in (about 20 at a time) to boil, when wontons float (about 4-5 minutes) they are ready. Scoop out and drain wontons and ladle into a bowl of hot broth.
5. Add some green onions on top as a garnish.
6. Also serve with hot chili sauce for the wontons if you wish.
TIP: Wontons can be frozen easily. Place on a cookie sheet (ensuring they dont touch each other) and freeze uncovered. Once frozen, put into a Ziploc bag. To cook, follow the instructions above, but allow to boil for a few extra minutes since wontons are frozen.

Personal Notes:
I love wontons for my birthday. In the morning, I open my presents with my family, and then we have breakfast. After breakfast, I play with my birthday presents. At the end of the day, we have the wontons for dinner. My Mom normally makes the wontons. Sometimes I help my Mom make the wontons. After we put the wontons in the oven,
I impatiently wait for them to bake. After they have baked, we have dinner. My brother gets to have Lasagna while I have wontons. I celebrate my birthday. After dinner, we have Birthday cake. After dessert, I watch TV with my brother until its time for bed.
