These crispy treats are a favorite in my family. The flavoursome herbs in this recipe, as well as the chilli, give the wontons a nice kick.
YUM! My husband and I whipped these up in no time. The assembly line helps! We made them as potstickers instead to save on the fat. (We brushed a non stick pan lightly with oil, set on medium heat, added about 8 potstickers at a time and let them sit for 2 minutes without touching, then added 1/4 cup of chicken broth, covered and turned down on low and let steam for another 2 minutes. Afterwards, we removed them and placed them on a sheet pan in the oven set at 200 degrees to keep them warm while we did the same with the rest. In between batches make sure to clean off your pan with a paper towel). We dipped them in gyoza sauce and hot chili oil. They turned out beautiful and loaded with flavor!!! Thanks for the recipe! - 17 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These are incredibly good. I cut back on the cilantro to 1 bunch (pretty large). The only issue I had was with the lemongrass - and I didn't see anyone else mention it, so it might be me. I had a hard time getting the lemongrass minced in my food processor. I pulsed it for a while, then cranked it, then sat around hoping the lemongrass would soften, then cranked it again. It turned out fine, but there are still a few rather intimidating chunks it there, so next time I would bash up the lemongrass and ginger together in the processor with just the soy and then add the other ingredients once it was fine. Sorry this is so long - thanks so much for the recipe! - 05 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
HOLY CAMOLE!!! These are EXCELLENT. Made them with the wonton wrapper recipe and they turned out perfect. They took a little TLC but it was well worth the work! - 01 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
