Crispy Pork Wontons
These Crispy Pork Wontons with Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce are the perfect start to your Chinese meal or as a party appetizer!
finely diced yellow onion
finely grated carrots
fresh garlic, minced
sea salt (or more to taste)
ground black pepper
low-sodium soy sauce
peanut or canola oil for frying
Mix the pork, carrot, onion, salt, pepper, and soy sauce together in a large bowl. It is easiest to mix with your hands to get all of the ingredients well blended.
Separate the wonton wrappers and lay then down on a large surface.* Spoon 1 teaspoon of filling onto the center of each wrapper.
Brush the edges of the wonton wrappers with the beaten egg. Fold the corner of the wrapper over the filling to form a triangle.
Press the edges together to seal. Fold two of the corners up to the center and press together to seal.
Place the finished wontons onto a baking sheet.
Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven or deep fryer to 365 degrees. Fry the wontons in small batches until they turn golden brown.
Remove from the oil and place on paper towel-lined baking sheet. Serve with Sweet and Sour Sauce.
*Do not overfill your wonton wrappers, they will explode or break apart. 1 teaspoon really is the right amount.
Work in batches when you lay out and fill your wontons. You don’t want the wrappers to dry out while sitting on the counter.
If you don’t like pork, chicken is delicious as well.
I got my new
Deep Fry/Candy Thermometer
and it works perfectly!! Now I know exactly how hot the oil is.
is perfect for removing wontons from hot oil.
Tip - fry a small amount of the filling in a pan until no longer pink inside so you can check the flavor and decided if you need more seasonings.
