About this recipe: Once these dumplings have been put together, you can either fry them or steam them; both ways are delicious.


Serves: 12 

  • 1 medium cabbage, finely shredded
  • 300g beansprouts
  • 3 celery sticks, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 450g prawns, peeled, deveined and coarsely chopped

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

  1. Place cabbage, beansprouts, celery and spring onions in a large wok and stir-fry over high heat until vegetables soften. If necessary, add a little water. Add prawns and stir-fry until cooked.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large frying pan over medium heat, brown the beef, draining off fat and liquid. Add the beef to the vegetable and prawn mixture and continue to fry over a high heat. Add oyster sauce, soya sauce and garlic. When well blended, remove mixture from heat.
  3. Place a tablespoon of the meat and prawn mixture into the centre of each wrapper. Dip your finger in a little water and run it around the edges of the wrapper. Gather wrapper edges to enclose filling and press together to seal.
  4. To fry the wontons, heat oil in wok over medium heat and cook until golden brown. Alternatively, cook wontons in batches in a steamer over boiling water for 10-15 minutes, or until cooked.
