New Year Wontons

It started last year, when it was during this time, around New Year’s, that I got a craving for wontons. I suppose it’s because of the holidays, that all I want is comfort food, food I’m used to eating at home with the family. So last year, I made wonton soup, wontons cooked in chicken broth. This year, it’s fried wontons, which consist of shrimp, cabbage, and green onions. Of course, you can make the filling to your liking, such as adding pork, beef, etc.

Ingredients:
20 pieces medium-sized shrimp, chopped
1 cup sliced green cabbage
1 cup chopped green onions
1 teaspoon sesame oil
wonton wrappers
water for sealing wontons
oil for frying

Directions:
1. Mix the chopped shrimp , sliced cabbage, chopped green onions, and sesame oil in a large mixing bowl.
2. Wet one side of a wonton wrapper with water. Place a tablespoon of the shrimp mixture in the middle of wonton wrapper. Bring together the corners of the wonton and twist at the top to close the wonton (there are different ways of folding a wonton, you can look them up on youtube.com).
3. Heat oil in a deep frying pan until hot. Fry several wontons at once in the pan until golden brown. Place fried wontons on a paper towel to dry.
4. Serve with a sweet chili sauce of your choice.

3-4 servings

Have a Happy New Year!
