Roast Pork and Shrimp Wonton Noodle Soup 云吞面

I like wonton noodle or we called wonton mee .I like my wonton mee with shrimp wonton and roast pork(叉烧)..Usually wonton mee sold in Chinese restaurant here (USA) doesn't come with roast pork(char sui) unless you order from Malaysia restaurant.Mostly Chinese restaurant here owned by people from China,Taiwan or Hong Kong.I guess their version of wonton mee come with shrimp wonton (dumpling) only not with 叉烧(roast pork).I recalled when I was in Hong Kong,I ordered Wonton Noodle in broth and dry version one portion each but to my surprised both order doesn't come with roast pork or cut marinated chili!! ..When I asked for cut marinated chili,the server gave me chili oil which doesn't goes well with wonton mee.Anyway long story short,I make my own homemade-roast-pork-char-siu so I decided to make some wonton noodle since I have plenty if roast pork(叉烧) available.These days making your own wonton mee at home is so easy and convenience,just get wonton broth seasoning that make the base soup and ready make wonton at any Asian market.Hooray!! You can have a nice,hot and delicious bowl of wonton noodles soup in no time!!

6 pieces raw wonton noodle
1 lb petit green mustard,washed throughly
1 cup or more sliced roast-pork-(char-siu)
1 pack or 1 lb fish ball,cut halve

The Broth:

4 sachets wonton seasoning
5 liter water
1 tbsp ground white pepper
2 tbsp sesame oil
salt to taste

Shrimp Wonton:
20 sheet wonton wrapper
20 large shrimp,peeled and cleaned
some water or one egg to seal

For garnishing:
some cut scallion
some fried onion
some cut chili with soy sauce


1:Wrap shrimp wonton ahead of time.Use one shrimp in a sheet of wonton.Seal the edges with water or egg wash.
2:Prepared medium stockpot with water at high heat.When water rolling boil place 2 wonton noodle into the boiling water.Use chop stick and spider sieve to remove the coil of noodle into loose noodles in about 1-2 minutes.Remove cooked noodles immediately to a bucket or bowl of cold running water ,then sieve into a bowl,set aside.(you will have al dente noodles instead of soggy and over cooked noodle)
Use the same stock pot to cook shrimp dumpling in about 2-3 minutes or until cooked,sieve and set aside.Do not over cooked!! Use the same pot to blanch green mustard and fish ball,sieve and set aside.
3:Meantime,use a medium stock pot with water at high heat.Add in wonton seasoning ,sesame oil and ground pepper powder.Check the seasoning when the soup rapid boil.Reduce the heat to low.
4:Place cooked wonton in boiling stockpot for 1-2 minutes,immediately sieve to a serving bowl,garnish with cooked shrimp wonton ,fish ball,green mustard and roast-pork-char-siu.Scoop some hot broth into the bowl,garnish with green scallion,fried onion and serve immediately with cut chili.
