  1. Chop the shrimp very fine using a knife or the food processor. Just be careful not to grind too too fine.
  2. Mix together the pork, shrimp, scallions, cilantro, fish sauce, salt, cornstarch, egg,sesame oil, water chestnuts. and ginger (I use my hands).
  3. Form the mixture into 1-2 inch balls and place on wax papper, parchment or a platter.
  4. Put one ball in the middle of a wonton wrapper and gather the wrapper around the ball leaving the top open.
  5. Kind of give it a waist .
  6. Steam in a bamboo steamer for about 5 to 6 minutes.
  7. May be frozen after steamed and cooled.
  8. To reheat I put them in a large skillet with some water or resteam.
  9. Some people boil these but I have never had much luck with that.
  10. I serve with several dipping sauces of varying heat.
