Wonton with Asian-Style Mushrooms

The Wonderful Wonton

I love all the interesting things you can do with wonton wrappers. I am always looking for new hors d’oeuvres recipes. Here is one using mushrooms and ponzu sauce.


Wonton with Asian-Style Mushrooms

Makes 20 hors d’oeuvres

20 wonton wrappers, cut into rounds (use a cookie cutter) and shallow fried until crispy (these can be made in advance and kept in an airtight container)
4-6 Tbs mushroom (or vegetable) stock
2 Tbs fresh ginger, minced
3 medium cloves garlic, minced
1 cup fresh shitake mushrooms, diced
1 cup brown mushrooms, diced
1 cup scallions, sliced finely
2 Tbs Ponzu
Juice and zest of one lime
Fresh cilantro, to garnish

Simmer the stock and add the ginger, garlic, mushrooms and scallions.

Season with the ponzu and lime juice, and reduce over a low heat until sauce has just about evaporated.

Add the lime zest and stir to incorporate.

Spoon a teaspoonful of the mushroom mixture onto the fried wonton wrappers and garnish with fresh cilantro.
