Seafood Wontons with Spicy Dressing Recipe

Seafood Wontons with Spicy Dressing Recipes

Ingredients :

8 oz raw prawns, peeled and deveined

4 oz white crabmeat, picked over

4 canned water chestnuts, finely diced

1 spring onion, finely chopped

1 small green chilli, seeded and finely chopped

1/2 tsp grated fresh root ginger

20-24 wonton wrappers

1 egg, separated

salt and freshly ground black pepper

coriander leaves, to garnish

For the spicy dressing:

2 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tbsp chopped pickled ginger

6 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp soy sauce

3 tbsp chopped coriander

2 tbsp finely diced red pepper

Method :

Finely dice the prawns and place them in a bowl. Add the crabmeat, water chestnuts, spring onion, chili, ginger and egg white. Season with salt and pepper and stir well. Place a wonton wrapper on a board. Put about 1 tsp of the filling just above the centre of the wrapper. With a pastry brush, moisten the edges of the wrapper with a little of the egg yolk. Bring the bottom of the wrapper up over the filling. Press gently to expel any air, then seal the wrapper neatly in a triangle.

For a more elaborate shape, bring the two side points up over the filling, overlap the points and pinch the ends firmly together. Space the filled wontons on a large baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper, so that they do not stick together. Half fill a large saucepan with water. Bring to simmering point. Add the filled wontons, a few at a time, and simmer for 2-3 minutes. The wontons will float to the surface. When ready the wrappers will be translucent and the filling should be cooked. Remove the wontons with a large slotted spoon, drain them briefly, then spread them on trays. Keep warm while cooking the remaining wontons.

Make the coriander dressing by whisking all the ingredients together in a bowl. Divide the wontons among serving dishes, drizzle with the dressing and serve garnished with a handful of coriander leaves.
