  • 1/2 lb. raw shrimp peeled
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 in. fresh ginger grated
  • 2 T. soy sauce
  • 1 T. sesame oil
  • 1 T. rice wine
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1 small bok choy thinly sliced
  • 8 green onions diced
  • 6 oz. wonton wrappers sliced into noodles


  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Pulse the shrimp in a food processor until finely chopped, almost into a paste.
  • Mix together ground shrimp, ground pork, garlic, ginger, 1 T. soy sauce, sesame oil, and rice wine.
  • Roll into bite-sized meatballs and place on a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes. While meatballs are baking, bring the broth to a simmer.

  • Add wonton noodles while stirring constantly to prevent noodles sticking together. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until noodles are soft.
