It was my first attempt and look at the picture, for a first it’s pretty ok. The recipe is really simple and with all the fresh veggies it’s also incredibly healthy. It’s with a shrimp filling but you could also make it with chicken. Have a look at the recipe and vary the ingredients with your favourite veggies.

You can find frozen wonton wrappers and thai basil at almost every Asian supermarket.
