Fried Shrimp Wontons

I was in the mood for some Chinese, so I decided to make fried shrimp wontons for the first time. I found an easy enough recipe to follow in Yummy Magazine. Instead of making all the wontons triangle shaped I made some that were half moon shaped. The wontons turned out pretty good, really crispy and tasty. Next project is to make these steamed for a healthier version. 

Here is the recipe:
300 grams shrimps
2 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp chopped green onion
20 -24 pieces wonton wrappers (use square wrappers to make traingle shaped wontons or round dumpling wrappers to make half moon shapes)
1 egg, whisked to use as an egg wash
oil for deep frying

1. Place all the ingredients in a bowl except the wonton, egg and oil. 
2. Make the wonton triangles by placing a spoonful of the mixture in the center of each wrapper.
3. Brush with egg wash and fold to make triangles, or half moons.
4. Heat enough oil to deep-fry the wonton pieces.  Make sure the oil is not too hot that the wrappers blister and brown within seconds.
5. Fry in batches and drain on paper towels.  Serve with sweet chili sauce.
