Wonton Wednesdays

A colleague of ours has been off work with a concussion for an extended while now, and so a group of us thought it would be nice to prepare some frozen, easy cook meals for him, to help make his recovery smoother. I present to you: GEORGE's FAMOUS NINJA WONTONS. They're NINJA wontons cause their awesome flavour is hidden, but will smash your taste buds like nunchuks to your face. I know that totally makes zero sense, but whatever, I spent the evening wrapping wontons when I should have been packing for Portland (we fly out tomorrow)... gonna be a long night.

1 lb. medium ground pork
2 green onion stalks (finely chopped)
1.5 tbsp sesame oil
1 egg white
couple pinches ginger powder
white and black pepper to taste

1 lb of small shrimp
1 package wonton wrappers

Combine pork, green onions, egg white, oil, ginger, and pepper. Mix until evenly distributed, and sticky. Place ~1 tsp of mixture into centre of wonton wrapper. Add 1 shrimp. Wet two edges of wrapper with water, fold in half to form triangular shaped dumpling. Pinch edges as shown above. Freeze until needed.

Cooking Instructions:
Cook from frozen - bring water or chicken stock to boil. Drop wontons in and boil for ~10 min (or until pork fully cooked). Serve in chicken stock. Add cooked egg noodles for an extra dose of awesome. Prepare for a NINJA assault to your taste buds.
