Ginger Dried Plum Wontons
Prep Time 25 minutes Cook Time 10 minutes Serves 25
Ingredients2 oz chopped walnuts
3 oz dried plums, coarsely chopped*
2 oz chopped crystallized ginger
1 T grated lemon peel
½ oz butter, softened
25 each wonton wrappers
as needed Cooking oil, for frying
Powdered sugar (optional)
*Canned dried plums may be substituted for pitted dried plums. Drain liquid and pat dry with a paper towel.
DirectionsIn small bowl, combine walnuts, dried plums, ginger, lemon peel and butter until well mixed. For each wonton, brush 1 wrapper with water. Place 1 teaspoon dried plum mixture onto center. Fold diagonally in half to form a triangle; seal edge, pressing to remove any air pockets. Pull together two opposite corners to overlap, pressing to seal. Repeat with remaining filling and wrappers. To prevent drying, cover filled wontons with a dry towel. In wok or 2-quart saucepan, heat oil to 375ºF. Add wontons, a few at a time; fry 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until golden brown, turning occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Serve hot or cold sprinkled with powdered sugar, if desired.
