Shrimp wonton noodles
This snack, which consists of wontons and noodles, is usually served in hot soup, garnished with Chinese chives and chopped spring onions. Inside the thin wrapping of a wonton, the filling is a mixture of shrimp, pork and eggs, or even a complete shrimp. The noodles are made of flour and eggs, without any water added, so they taste slippery and elastic. To ensure that the noodles are perfectly al dente, the correct cooking process must be strictly followed. The wontons are cooked first, and then placed in the bowls, with five per bowl. The thin noodles are blanched for 10 seconds, then rinsed in cold water and placed on the wontons. Piping hot bouillon is then poured into the bowl on top of the wonton noodles. Then the Chinese chives and chopped spring onions are added.
