Deep Fried Dim Sum Wonton Recipe with pork and shrimp filling

One of my most favorite Deep Fried Wonton Recipe ever. This is a must try. I highly recommend getting everything and making them. You won't be disappointed.

For Double Batch (Perfect for family)

Ingredients:


  • 1) pound of ground boneless Lean Pork
  • 1) 300 gr bag or Raw Shrimp (shell-less or shelled)
  • 1) can water Chestnuts
  • 2) teaspoons Ginger Paste
  • 2) tablespoons Oyster Sauce
  • 1) tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 2) tablespoons Chinese Rice Wine, Dry Sherry or Rice Vinegar (I use Rice Vinegar)
  • 2) teaspoons Granulated Sugar
  • 2) drops of Sesame Oil
  • Add dash of Salt
  • Freshly ground White Pepper, to taste
  • Wonton Wrappers, as needed

Preparation:

Finely chop shrimp.  Peel (if needed) the water chestnuts and finely chop.  Mince the ginger (unless it's a paste) until you have 2 teaspoons.
Combine everything in a bowl and mix.

  • Place the teaspoon of filling in the middle of the wrapper and twist to seal.  The final result should resemble a money bag or drawstring purse.
  • Put on one side of a damp towel.  (Cover the wontons with the other side of the towel until ready) or start deep frying.

Deep-frying the wontons:

  • Heat oil for deep-frying to 360 degrees.   Add wonton in small batches and fry, turning occasionally, about 2 minutes or until golden brown.  (Make sure it's cooked.  It is pork after all.)
  • Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels or newspapers.
