  3. While the oil’s heating, start wrapping the wontons.
Wrapping Time
  1. Lay a wonton wrapper in front of you. Place a teaspoon of the filling in the center, then fold up the wonton until the shape resembles a nurse’s cap. To seal, wet the edges of the wrapper.
  1. A few at a time, carefully slide the wontons into the oil. Deep-fry the wontons in batches, until they are all browned evenly.
  2. Drain on a paper towel, then serve while crispy. Let the eating contest begin!
  1. If you’re short on time, these wontons can be prepared ahead of time before frying and refrigerated. Just make sure to let the wontons warm up to room temperature again when you’re ready for the deep-frying.
  2. And of course, last but not least, don’t forget the sweet and sour sauce, it’s almost as important as the wontons themselves.
