Spicy wantons (shaped like gyoza)


At home we love a good Asian recipe. Wantons are one of my favourite things to eat. The juicy filling, the vinegary and spicy sauce to dip- just perfection. My wantons for this recipe are shaped like gyozas simply because I couldn`t find wanton wrappers anywhere. I decided to compromise on the shape, but don`t worry the taste is pretty authentic. I added a little pictures gallery at the bottom of the post, so you can see how to wrap the gyoza shapes.

The recipe if from Marion`s kitchen.


For the wantons:

  • 40 wrappers sheets (I found mine in Spinneys Motor City Branch)
  • 300 g pork mince
  • few stalks spring onion
  • 2 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock (you can use water if you don`t have it)
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the sauce:

  • 4 tbsp chili oil (recipe here)
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup spring onion
  • handful fresh coriander
  • thumb size grated ginger



  1. Start by mixing all the ingredients for the sauce. Keep in the fridge before it`s time to serve
  2. Mix the mince, spices, egg and stock well and fill each wrapper as shown below
  3. Keep each wanton on a dusted with corn starch surface to avoid sticking
  4. Boil water and cook the wantons for 4-5 minutes
  5. To serve place few wantons on a plate, drizzle generously with the sauce and add few table spoons of the water you boiled the wantons in.
