Pork and prawn wonton soup |Only Cookery. This is an absolute childhood favourite of mine. My mum and I used to make these together and I was missing her so decided to make a batch. Its a homely and comforting dish that always brings a smile to my face when eating this. I have eaten wonton soup in many different restaurants and they don't always live up to our homemade ones as they often either lack flavour, don’t include prawns or have a dry filling. So I thought I would share this recipe and hope you enjoy making and eating them as much as I do.

Pleat the top of the wonton, make between 3 to 5 pleats (depending on how ‘ruffled’ you want the wontons). Press the top of the pleats to seal tightly.
