Fried wontons are especially popular in the Chinese restaurants here in the United States. They are commonly served as an appetizer and comes with a pinkish-red sweet and sour dipping sauce. Everyone loves fried wontons…they are crispy and filled with savory meat or meat and seafood filling, and the sweet and sour sauce makes them even more appetizing.

I used some shrimp and mixed them with ground pork. I also added some water chestnuts to give the wontons that extra crunchiness and interesting texture. You can be totally flexible with the fillings and use chicken or turkey instead of pork. You can add some shrimp, scallop, or even crab to the filling or just plain with meat. Here is my easy recipe that you can make at home. Enjoy!
