Fried wontons are a crispy, crunch and delicious appetizer that will have your guests talking about them at the office on Monday morning. When you hear the word wonton, you usually think of soups. But as taboo as fried food may be, fried wontons are everyone’s guilty pleasure. Be prepared for these super addictive appetizers.For the wontons:
100 grams of ground pork
2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon shaoxing wine
½ teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon peanut or canola oil
Water for sealing the wontons
A pinch of white pepper
50 wonton skins
Sweet apricot dipping sauce (apricot jam, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar)
Honey sriracha dipping sauce (honey & sriracha sauce)
- Start by making the filling. Simply combine the ground pork, chopped scallions, sesame oil, soy sauce, wine, sugar, oil, water and white pepper in a bowl. Whip everything together.
- To make the wontons, take a wrapper, and add a teaspoon of filling.
- Fold the wrapper in half into a rectangle, and press the two sides together so you get a firm seal. Hold the bottom two corners of the little rectangle you just made and bring the two corners together, pressing firmly to seal (use a little water to make sure it sticks).
- Fill a pot with 2-3 inches of oil, making sure the pot is deep enough so the oil does not overflow when adding the wontons. When the oil starts sizzling, fry the wontons in small batches, turning the wontons occasionally until they are golden brown.
- Serve the crispy fried wontons in our Acadian Bark Serving Tray.
