How to Make Fried Shrimp Wonton Soup with Smoked Ham

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.
