Chili-Pepper Wontons

 

 

 

 

This is a Chinese Wonton dish with a filling of a ground shrimp/pork/chicken. It's covered with a sweet, sour and slightly spicy Finadene. The recipe is based on one of the episodes of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives as well as some flavors I've experienced here on the Mainland.

- 1 tsp Hot Chili Oil (I use Spicy Chili Crisp)

- 1 Tbs Soy Sauce

- 1 Tbs White Vinegar

- 2 Tbs Sake

- ½ tsp Sesame Oil

- ¼ Cup Sugar

- ½ tsp White Pepper

Directions:

Sealing:

- Place small bowl of water on table nearby to use for sealing wantons.

- Place wonton on table at an angle with one corner pointed toward you. Put about 1 tsp of filling in

  wanton. Dip tip of finger in water and seal the top edges of wanton. Fold bottom point of wonton up and - press diagonal edges together.

- Pull ends of wonton around until tips are overlapping to form a hat and press together to seal.

 

Cooking:

- In a medium or large pan, put enough vegetable oil to barely cover bottom and heat on Med-high

  until it shimmers.

- Place wontons on pan and cook until bottom is golden brown and delicious (GB&D). 

- Add enough water to pan until water is about ¼ of the way up the wontons. Cover and steam about 5

  minutes until wontons are cooked. Remove lid and allow remaining water to evaporate or pour it out

  depending on doneness.

- Place wontons together in bowl. Cover with sauce and serve.

- There's also a video for folding the wontons under the "Tools/Tips & Videos" Tab.
