Won Ton Soup

1/4 lb. raw shrimp, shelled, deveined and rinsed
1/4 cup water chestnuts
1/2 lb. ground pork, chicken or turkey
2 tsp. oyster sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
4 green onions, minced (green parts only)
wonton wrappers

Chop shrimp finely. Plunge the water chestnuts into boiling water briefly to remove the tinny taste; refresh in cold water and chop coarsely. Mix all ingredients except wrappers together.

Place a scant teaspoon of filling into the centre of a wonton wrapper; gather edges and pinch together to make a "waist".

Place finished wontons on tray that has been dusted with cornstarch or flour. These freeze very well in Tupperware-type containers.

To cook, bring 4 quarts of water to a full boil; cover and boil until wontons (frozen or fresh) bob to the surface.

Strain and serve with hot chicken broth flavoured with a little soy sauce and sesame oil.
