There’s no need to order take-out when you can make these delicious wontons in under an hour. For the filling, ground pork is mixed with chopped shrimp and water chestnuts and seasoned with soy sauce and toasted sesame oil. Store-bought wonton wrappers, sold in the refrigerated or freezer section of supermarkets, are a cinch to work with, and it’s fun to fill, fold, and pinch them into shape. Here, the wontons are steamed, but you could also brown them in a pan with a little vegetable oil.
