Pork and Leek Wontons in an Asian Broth
These soft pillows of juicy, meaty goodness is the perfect thing to eat when you’re craving something super tasty and satisfying.
They are wonderfully versatile and so worth all the fiddly work.
As a broth, the dish is fabulously pretty and comforting, but they are also great as Dim Sum. Frying the base of them in a little oil, after steaming, adds a wonderful crunch. As Dim Sum, I like to serve them with a ginger, chilli and soy dipping sauce. Simply mix one thumb of grated ginger to two tablespoons of soy sauce, one tablespoon of lime juice, one tablespoon of honey (or 2 teaspoons of caster sugar) freshly chopped chilli, a few drops of sesame oil and some chopped coriander (it’s also nice to add a tablespoon of toasted sesame seeds).
