Fried Shrimp Wantons

It's a Chinese calling dish today. Chinese style to my style cooking today (Chap Chai/Vegetable Stew, Chick Kut Teh, Yam Basket, Egg Fish Roll, Chinese Chicken Meatball Soup, Fried Lotus Roots Chips & Chinese Black Vinegar Chicken). Fried Shrimp Wantons. Call it as a snack, or a side dish or an accompaniment for rice, whichever and whatever, as per your wish, I will respect your wish (Bonda/Potato Stuffed Fried Balls Bread Sardine Rolls). Your wish though is not, can't be my command though. On the other hand, I respect your decision even if you fancy these Fried Shrimp Wantons, eaten as hot as they are out of the wok and dip or rolled over chilli sauce. Not the same. As those which will pop up when you Google, aplenty recipe sharing these days mind you. My version is a tweet to the originally, but prawns are definitely the main highlight (Tamarind Prawn CurryMalaysian Fried MeePrawn Devil CurrySambal Udang/Prawn Sambal & Prawn Mee), maybe I should include the ready made wanton skin too. Conclusively, Fried Prawn Wantons are superbly crackling crunchy crispy outer and prawns tucked inside. Howdy! Its now number crunching time. Okay bye! 

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.
