Ingredients

36
fresh shrimp wontons
8 c
chicken broth
1 Tbsp
soy sauce, light
2 Tbsp
sherry
1/4 tsp
white pepper
1/3 c
cornstarch, mixed with 1/3 cup water
1 tsp
sesame oil
2
egg whites
2
green onions, finely chopped
3 Tbsp
cilantro, fresh and chopped
2 Tbsp
ham
peanut oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To deep-fry wonton: Preheat a wok or deep saucepan over medium-high heat until hot.
2
Add at least 2 inches oil; heat to 365.
3
Deep-fry the wonton in batches, without crowding and turning occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown.
4
Remove with a skimmer, drain on paper towels.
5
Put wontons in a shallow 3-quart soup tureen.
6
Bring chicken stock, soy sauce, sherry and white pepper to a boil in a large stockpot; stir in cornstarch mixture and cook until soup thickens, about 15 seconds.
7
Fold in sesame oil; remove stockpot from heat.
8
Lightly beat the egg whites just to break them up a bit.
9
Stir soup in a circular motion while slowly and in a steady stream pouring in the egg whites; the whites should set within seconds into a lacy pattern.
10
Pour soup over wontons, garnish with chopped onions, cilantro and ham (or prosciutto); serve hot.
