Naked Wontons

It’s like a wonton, but without the wrapper and the deep-frying, which makes it instantly healthier. These pork and shrimp balls may be naked, but they don’t skimp on flavor. Serve this fun appetizer at your next get-together and you guaranteed to hear some “wows.” This recipe makes enough for a small get-together of 6-8 people.

1 jalapeño pepper
2 cloves of garlic
1 lime (zest and juice)
Handful of cilantro
1 pound of ground pork
½ pound of uncooked deveined shrimp
Vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of honey
½ cup of low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon of sesame oil

Kitchen Essentials:
Food processor
Cutting board
Measuring cups and spoons
Chopping knife
Large non-stick skillet

Combine jalapeño pepper, garlic, lime zest and cilantro in the food processer. Then add the pork and shrimp and pulse until blended evenly. Make teaspoon-sized balls with your hands and sauté in hot oil in a non-stick pan until they are fully cooked and golden brown.
To make the dipping sauce, whisk together lime juice, honey, soy sauce and sesame oil. Garnish with thyme.
