Wontons with spicy peanut sauce, a tasty alternative to the classic Chinese dumplings in broth.


  • 1 pack of wonton dough already portioned

  • 400g minced pork

  • 2 spring onions finely chopped (only the green part)

  • 1 clove garlic crushed

  • 1 piece grated ginger

  • salt to taste

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil

  • grated black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • chilli oil (better if it contains chilli paste) to taste


  • Mix ground pork, 1 spring onion, garlic, ginger, salt, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, black pepper and 1 tablespoon water in a bowl.

  • Place a teaspoon of the dough in the center of the dumplings. Wet all sides of the dumplings with a finger and close it into a triangle, sealing the edges well. Wet the two ends and join them, forming a kind of tortellino.

  • Bring water to a boil in a large pot.

  • Prepare the sauce by mixing peanut butter, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, chilli oil, sugar in a bowl. Add a little of the hot water from the pan to form a smooth cream.

  • Dip the dumplings little by little into the water. Once it starts boiling again, calculate 5 minutes of cooking time. Stir very gently from time to time.

  • Remove the dumplings with a slotted spoon to drain them and place them on a serving plate. Drizzle with the cream and garnish with spring onion and sesame seeds.
