Deep-fried seafood wonton or dumpling

Lobster ClawsSome of you were interested in those seafood dumplings or wontons, check below for the list of filling ingredients -

Seafood Dumpling, Deep Fried/Boiled
-1 fish fillet - use a good quality fish fillet (I use cod fillet)
-6-10 medium size prawns
-dashes of salt and pepper
-1tsp sesame oil
-less than 1tsp cooking wine
-1/2 cup mixed vegetables of peas and carrots, cooked and cooled, set aside
-1 egg white

Directions - chop the fish fillet to a fish paste consistency. Do the same with the prawns. Mix them in a mixing bowl and add in the cooked (cooled) vegetables and the marinade of salt and pepper, sesame oil and cooking wine. Then add in egg white and mix well. The final paste should not be too watery and just slightly sticky.

Use wonton wraps and fold in the fillings. If you are boiling for soups, you can fold them like this. For deep frying, just fold at the diagonal into triangles if you are using square wonton wraps.

These fried dumpling or wontons would be perfect for Things Inside Other Things at Blog Party #26. Hiding inside these wraps is the light and tasty seafood fillings made out of fish and prawns. Deep-fried rather than boiled so they are easier on the fingers, and neater for the party. Of course, no one can resist deep-fried food, ya? :P

Oh, that's some beverage too. Not a originally concocted cocktail (oops!), but the carrot juice will ease some guilt when eating those deep-fried dumplings.
