Crisp-Fried Wild Mushroom Wontons

Crisp-Fried Wild Mushroom Wontons
Ah, crisp, crackly deep-fried wontons! Every crunchy bite tastes just as good as it sounds. Add a tasty dipping sauce and get the party started! Can it be matsutake you taste?

4 – 6 wild mushroom wontons per person (see "Wild Mushroom Wontons - Basic Recipe" in Earthy Delights recipes)
Vegetable oil for frying
Ginger Pao Hot Sauce or dipping sauce of your choice




Add 2 to 3 inches of vegetable oil to a wok or heavy-bottomed saucepan and heat on a medium high burner until the oil reaches about 350° F. Add the wontons a few at a time (depending on the size of your cooking vessel) and fry, turning frequently, until golden, about 1 to 2 minutes. As they finish cooking, remove the wontons from the oil with a slotted spoon and lay on paper towels to drain.


Serve while piping hot with the dipping sauce of your choice.
