In a mixing bowl, combine the ground pork, chopped shrimp, minced garlic, chopped green onion, grated ginger, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, and white pepper.
Mix the ingredients thoroughly until well combined. The filling should be sticky and well-mixed.
Assemble the Wontons:

Lay out a wonton wrapper on a clean surface.
Place about 1 teaspoon of the filling mixture in the center of the wrapper.
Moisten the edges of the wrapper with water.
Fold the wrapper in half diagonally to form a triangle, pressing the edges to seal.
Bring the two corners of the triangle together, moisten one corner with water, and press them together to create the classic wonton shape.
Repeat this process until all the filling is used.
Prepare the Broth:

In a large pot, bring the chicken or vegetable broth to a boil.
Add the ginger slices, smashed garlic cloves, and green onion pieces to the pot.
Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 15-20 minutes to infuse the broth with flavor.
Remove the ginger, garlic, and green onions from the broth and discard them.
Season the broth with soy sauce, salt, and white pepper to taste.
Cook the Wontons:

Bring a separate pot of water to a boil.
Carefully add the wontons to the boiling water and cook for 4-5 minutes or until they float to the surface.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked wontons to serving bowls.

Ladle the hot broth over the cooked wontons in each serving bowl.
Garnish with freshly chopped green onions or cilantro if desired.
