Spinach and Pork WontonsSubmitted by: KLWOZNIAK
IntroductionAdapted from Food & Wine, Jan 2009 Adapted from Food & Wine, Jan 2009
4 cups baby spinach, rinsed
2 tablespoons plus 1 1/2 tsp soy sauce, divided
2 teaspoons Asian sesame oil*
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar*
1/4 tsp freshly ground white pepper
1/2 pound ground lean pork loin (we ground our own)
2 small scallions, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
30 thin wonton wrappers*
2 tablespoons chili-flavored olive oil (1 tsp oil per serving)
1 small garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2. In a bowl, combine 1 Tbsp of the soy sauce, the sesame oil, salt, sugar and white pepper. Mix in the pork, scallion, ginger and spinach. Chill for 10 minutes.
3. Arrange 4 wonton wrappers on a work surface, keeping the other wrappers covered with plastic wrap. Brush the edges of the wrappers with water and spoon 1 1/2 teaspoons of filling in the center of each. Fold the wrappers diagonally over the filling to form triangles; seal. Bring the two opposite corners of the triangle together; press to seal. Transfer to the baking sheet and cover. Repeat.
4. In a large saucepan of boiling water, simmer the wontons over moderate heat, stirring occasionally. When they float, cook for 3 minutes longer. Drain the wontons well.
5. In a large bowl, combine the remaining soy sauce with the chili oil, and garlic. Add the wontons and toss. Sprinkle with the cilantro and serve.
