Shrimp Pho

I made shrimp pho following a recipe by Jaden Hair. The long version of Jaden's recipe can be found here.The dessert wontons are a recipe I made up myself.


  • 1 package won ton wrappers
  • 8 oz chopped, toasted hazelnuts
  • 6 T to 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 an orange, juiced and zested
  • Oil for frying
  • 1 C powdered sugar
  • 1 T milk 



Pulse the hazelnuts in a food processor (or in my case a small coffee grinder and in batches) until very finely ground. Add the juice and zest of the orange. Next add the brown sugar. Mix thoroughly with your hands. This should form a very thick paste.

Drop the mixture by heaping half teaspoons onto the corner of a won ton wrapper. Roll up eggroll style. Place under a damp cloth and continue making the rest of the won tons. I had some mix left over for snacking and that's fine by me!
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan until it reaches 350 degrees F. Fry the won tons until golden brown and drain on paper towels.
Mix the powdered sugar and the milk to form a very thin glaze. You can add more milk if you need to. Drop each won ton it and let the excess glaze fall off back into the bowl.
I used white chocolate here but it didn't taste very good with the wontons.
I hope you enjoy my tutorial!
