Crispy Shrimp Wontons

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat a wok or skillet over high heat. Add oil; stir fry pork for 1 minute, add chopped shrimp, soy sauce, vinegar, salt, water chestnuts and scallions. Stir fry until shrimp turn pink. Pour cornstarch mixture into pan; stir-fry until liquid thickens; cool to room temperature.
  2. Place 1 1/2 teaspoons filling in center of each wonton wrapper. With a finger dipped in water, moisten the edges of the wrapper. Bring one corner up over the filling to the opposite corner, to form a triangle. Pull the two bottom corners of the folded triangle forward and below the folded edge so that they meet one another in slightly overlap. Moisten one end with a finger dipped in water and pinch the two ends firmly together.
  3. As each wonton is finished, place it on a plate and cover with a dry towel. If the wontons must wait longer than 30 minutes before cooking, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  4. To Cook: Pour 3 cups peanut oil in wok or saucepan. Heat oil until haze forms or reads 375 degrees F on deep-fry thermometer. Deep-fry the wontons, 4-6 at a time, for 2 minutes or until they are crisp and golden. Transfer them to paper towels to drain while you fry the remaining wontons.

Makes about 36 wontons
