Fried Wontons


4 people


30 minutes



– 1/2 lb. (0.2 kg) ground pork, chicken or turkey – 1/4 lb. (0.1 kg) shrimp, chopped into small pieces – 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce or fish sauce – 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil – 3 dashes ground white pepper – 1 pack store-bought wonton wrappers – water, for sealing – vegetable oil, for deep frying

Step 1

In a bowl, mix the ground pork, shrimp, soy sauce, sesame oil and white pepper together. Stir to combine well to form a sticky filling.

Step 2

To wrap the wontons, lay a piece of the wonton wrapper on your palm and add 1/2 tablespoon of the filling in the middle of the wrapper. (Use 1 teaspoon filling if you are a beginner.) Dip your index finger into the sealing water and trace it on the outer edges of the wonton wrapper.

Step 3

You can wrap the wontons three ways. To make a triangle, just fold it up to form a triangle. Pinch the edges to seal tight. To make them into the pretty shape, just pull the two corners of the triangle down so one overlaps the other, pinch and seal with water. To make them into Hong Kong style wonton, please watch my video.

Step 4

Heat up some oil for deep-frying. Once the oil is fully heated, deep fry the wontons until golden brown. Drain the excess oil with paper towels. Serve hot with Chinese sweet and sour sauce or Thai sweet chili sauce.
