- Heat the deep frying oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. While it heats, make the wontons.
- Lay a wonton wrapper in front of you on your work surface. Cover the remaining wontons with a damp paper towel to keep them moist.
- Place one teaspoon full of the filling in the center of the wrapper. Fold up the edges of the wonton wrapper so it looks like a little pouch. Use a little water to wet the portions that touch. Press them together to seal them closed.
- Add a few of the stuffed wontons to the hot oil at a time, carefully sliding them in. Fry the wontons until they are golden in color. Turn them as needed so they brown evenly. Drain them on paper towels.
