Misa taught me a lot about Asian cuisine, and what I preferred from her, is that we are very similar, we like quick and easy cuisine!
Wontons are a Chinese food very popular and spread all over Asia with a lot of different shape and taste. Basically, it is a dumpling that can be found fried or steamed, serve alone or in a soup,... All the stuffing are imaginable,... usually, you find it already made and ready to eat.
This is a good idea to change from boring appetizers like crisps. We will prepare home made Wontons!!!!! One of the other treat Chinese people have for their New Year celebration!
- Wontons pastry sheets pack (you also can do it yourself as normal pasta, but, we chose the quick way and you'll find it in a Asiatic grocery with no problem!)
- 1 tuna can (200 gr. aprox.)
- 2 tbsp. of mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp. of sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp. of soy sauce
- 75gr. of fresh cottage cheese type, Philadelphia is also ok!
- coconut oil
1/ First prepare the stuffing by mixing the tuna can with mayonnaise, cheese, soy sauce and sesame.
2/Then, put half spoon of the mixture in the middle of the Wonton sheet. With a wet finger, moisture all around the borders of the Wonton and then put another piece of Wonton on the top and press the borders in order the two pastries gets welded.
Keep them on a plate without putting them on top of the others.
3/ When all the Wontons are ready, put a good quantity of coconut oil in a fried pan, and heat it. When the oil is ready, fry the Wontons 2 minutes for each side.
The reserve it in a kitchen paper and serve it right away!
3/ You can eat it with a soy sauce or a mix made of crushed garlic, soy sauce and chili and a little bit of nuoc nam. Delicious as a starter with some green leaves or as a creative aperitif!
