Prawn Wonton Noodle Soup

Prawn Wanton Noodle Soup is other side to Fried Prawn Wanton and Chicken Wanton Soup. Only that prawn (Prawn Fried Mee, Prawn Soup Mee, Prawn Mango CurryPepper Prawn Curry & Lemongrass Chilli Prawn) wanton noodle soup is an all in one complete wholesome meal in a bowl. Bowl food again? Indeed yes. But not the same as previous versions. No, not at all. Trust me. Believe me. I definitely won't take you through a bluffology food journey. Never been my philosophy, neither will I want to. I believe in being sincerely honest no matter what, not even for fame fanning myself in the blogging scene (Thai Salmon Noodle Soup, Prawn Curry Mee, & Mushroom Yee Mee Soup). Okay? Lemme now lure you towards recipe of this day. To begin with, we need to make the broth/soup (Corn Soup, Mutton Mee Hoon Soup & Chinese Chicken Herbal Soup). Mine is always prawn heads and shells (Prawn Fitters), of course, you can opt for others (Spicy Mutton Soup), type of noodle is also per your choice. I grabbed a packet of this different type, still regarded as wonton noodle, the other core for all that jazz Prawn Wonton Noodle Soup is making the wanton prawn parcels. Store bought wanton skin will cost only a couple of dollars, really affordable and each piece is parceled with prawn filling. Thereafter, its all about getting Prawn Wonton Noodle Soup ready. Don't forget to tip in some leafy green veg, oh, do remember to pair it along soy pickled green chillies. Akin made in heaven spiciness pairing for Prawn Wanton Noodle Soup.
