Course: Dinner, Snack
Cuisine: Chinese
Keyword: pork, prawn

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 40 wonton wrappers
  • vegetable oil for deep frying

Filling

  • 500 grams minced pork the fatty type
  • 100 grams green prawn meat finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 green onion finely chopped

Instructions

  • Mix all filling ingredients together
  • .In a small separate bowl, lightly beat the egg.
  • Take 1 tsp of filling and place it into the centre of a wonton wrapper. Brush two adjoining edges with the egg and fold the wrapper over to form a triangle.
  • Heat oil until very hot. Deep fry in batches of six and drain on paper towels. Serve with sweet and sour dipping sauce.

Notes

  • Sweet and sour sauce is widely available at the supermarket.
  • If I'm feeling lazy, I put the mixture into the food processor to combine; it creates a smooth texture.
  • Asian butchers sell two types of pork mince: The one you want has fat in it for flavour.
  • You really need to stick to the quantities in this recipe. If the wonton fillings are too wet, they explode and fill up with hot oil.
  • Pork is pink when it is cooked so you need to pull a wonton apart and feel the temperature of the centre of  to get an idea if they are cooked.
