Recipes / Tuesday, March 26th, 2019

was inspired to make these wontons by a food blogger I follow – Meatballs Mama. Her food always looks SO amazing and she made these beef dumplings using a Vitamix and it looked just so easy. I used my Magimix, adapted the recipe to make it my own and now I have a super quick recipe for the filling.

Prawn Wontons with a Honey Lime Chilli Sauce



  • 1 kg prawn, deveined and chopped
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoon Hoisin
  • 2 tablespoon Sriracha
  • ½ cup light soy sauce
  • 1 cup chives
  • Wonton wrappers
  • Water

Honey Lime Sauce

  • 4 red bullet chilies, chopped finely
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • ¼ cup Ume Shiso seasoning

How To Prepare

  1. Place all filling ingredients into a food processer and pulse for about 2 minutes until fully mixed and the mixture has the consistency of a lumpy paste. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. To make the wontons, put a teaspoon of mixture in the center of the wrapper and brush edges with water. Fold to seal and push out the air and twist the top to seal.
  3. To make the honey lime sauce, over a medium to low heat, cook the chilies, sugar & water for about 30 minutes. The sugar will begin to caramelize and thicken. At this point, add all the other ingredients except the spring onion and continue to boil on a medium heat for about 10 – 15 minutes.
  4. To assemble, fry the wontons for 2 minutes in hot oil. Drain well, drizzle with honey lime sauce & chopped spring onions and serve.
  5. Place the red chilli and caster sugar in a pan over a medium heat. The sugar will start to melt and
