Fried Shrimp Wontons

The parceled and filled with minced prawns crispy fried, Fried Shrimp Wontons. Of course, Wantons on the whole is a Chinese snack, or a dim sum item or can be an accompanied for rice (Chinese Chicken Meatball Soup). May be quite a thing actually, if you are like me a first timer to making. Then again, nothing is impossible trust me. I did it. I am sure you will (Chap Chai, Chick Kut Teh, Yam BasketFried Lotus Roots Chips & Chinese Black Vinegar Chicken). For a matter of fact, if  you follow this recipe of mine. Fried Prawn Wontons. Get crunching once Fried Shrimp Wontons are out of the frying pan. Perhaps, some chilli sauce will be good as well for dipping?  

17 wonton pastry pieces
Enough oil for frying

Prawn Filling
170g/about 1 cup prawns - remove skin, veins and finely chopped
1/2 tbsp corn flour
1 stalk coriander leaf - shredded
1/4 inch ginger - finely chopped (to remove the raw smell of the prawns)
1 1/2 tsp light soy sauce
Salt for taste

In a bowl,  mix the ingredients for the filling.
Take a piece of the wanton skin and place about 3/4 tsp of the filling in the center.
Lightly dab/pat the corners of the skin with water, bring together to the centre and pressed. (see picture below)
Do the same with the rest of the skin and the filling.
Heat enough oil to deep fry.
Fry the parcels in batches until golden brown.
Remove and drain on the kitchen towel.
