One thing I've always wanted to make is fried wontons. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to try it out.
What you'll need:
Cooked duck, cut into pieces- about half a cup to three quarters of a cup, depending on how full you stuff them
One egg, seperated
Bean Sprouts (a few tablespoons)
Splash of Sesame Seed Oil
Soy Sauce for dipping
Hot oil for frying
In a small bowl, mix egg yolk, duck, bean sprouts and a few drops of sesame seed oil. Lay out wonton wrapper and spoon in just under a teaspoon of the filling.
Brush egg white around the edges, fold into a triangle, and seal. Pull the corners up to the top and pinch together. Repeat!
This took a few times to really master. I have to say, I had some deformed wontons.
Heat oil to about 360. Drop in wontons and fry 2-3 minutes on each side.
Remove from oil and put on paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil. Serve while still hot with soy sauce to dip.
I honestly don't know if I can eat wontons at the Chinese restaurant any more. These were AWESOME, even if I do say so myself.
And score one for me-the husband ate tons of bean sprouts and didn't even realize it! Shhh...don't tell him though :)
As you can see, we ate quite a few of them!
