My friend Krez has this Special Shrimp Wonton Soup at a restaurant called Chopstix in McAllen, Tx and posted a picture recently. It looked so good, it inspired me to try to recreate it today. I have NO idea what the inspiration tastes like but I can certainly see what veg and such are included in the soup. I did forget the carrots and onions, though. 😦
So here’s what I included in the soup:
Broth with veg (this makes more broth than one serving) –
1 box low sodium chicken broth
2 or 3 Carrots
4 potstickers or 6 wontons, still frozen
1 can (drained & rinsed) of stir fry veggies
Salt & Pepper to taste
In a separate pot:
1 package ramen noodles (do not use flavor packet)
6-10 frozen shrimp or fish or chicken, cut to bite sized pieces
Heat the broth to a simmer. Chop veg to desired size and add to broth in order listed above. Add other ingredients and allow the veg to cook down.
In a separate pot, boil water and cook noodles to package instructions. If using chicken, add at the same time as noodles. If using shrimp or fish, add in the last minute of cooking. Strain noodles and protein, add to large soup bowl. Cover with broth, dumplings and veg. Enjoy!
