Crab, Boiled

50 g, flaked

Spring roll wrapper

12 individual, medium, square wonton wrappers (available from Oriental supermarkets)

Prawns, Peeled & Cooked

50 g, cooked, finely chopped

Chives, Fresh

1 teaspoon(s), chopped

Black pepper

1 pinch

Fresh Vegetable Stock

850 ml, vegetable or chicken

Spring Onions

2 medium, finely chopped


1 portion(s), or pak choi leaves


  1. Mix together the crabmeat, prawns and chives. Lay the wonton wrappers on a work surface and share the crab mixture between them, spooning it into the middle of each wrapper. Brush the edges of the wontons with a little cold water, then draw them up to form little pouches, pressing the wrappers to seal tightly.
  2. For the soup, heat the chicken or vegetable stock in a large saucepan and add the spring onions and spinach or pak choi. Add the wontons and simmer over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes, or until the wontons rise to the surface. Serve at once.
