Fried Wontons with Mustard Sauce

Makes 20 wontons

Ingredients

Mustard Sauce

  • 3/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vinegar

Filling

  • 4 oz ground pork
  • 2 oz Napa cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 20 wonton skins
  • Vegetable oil, as needed for deep frying

Directions

  1. Combine the ingredients for the mustard sauce in a small bowl and mix well. Set aside.

  2. Mix filling ingredients together in a medium bowl. Beat the egg with the water in a small bowl. To assemble the wontons (see the images after the recipe), brush the edges of each wrapper with the egg wash. Place 2 teaspoons of the filling into each wrapper. Fold the wonton in half to make a triangle. Press to seal the edges securely. Bring the two corners along the base of the triangle in toward each other, overlap them, and press to seal securely. Transfer to a parchment-lined sheet pan and refrigerate until ready to fry.

  3. Fry the wontons in a deep saucepan of hot oil until golden brown. Remove to a sheet pan lined with paper towels to drain.

  4. Serve hot with the mustard sauce.
