    1. 1
      In a large bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup soy sauce, chopped cilantro, lemon zest, 2 tablespoons ginger, and 1 tablespoons sesame oil.
    2. 2
      Peel shrimp, leaving tails on, and devein. Add to soy mixture and marinate, covered, 15 to 20 minutes at room temperature.Drain shrimp in a colander, spread out on paper towels, and pat dry. (I make a horizontal slit, 3/4 of the way through the shrimp, in the middle of the curve of the shrimp so that it will straighten out.).
    3. 3
      Pour oil into a deep, heavy pot to a depth of 3 inches and heat to 375°F Meanwhile, spread out wonton wrappers. Working with one wrapper at a time, put several cilantro leaves and stems along wrapper edge nearest you. Top them with a shrimp, arranging shrimp lengthwise so that tail extends beyond wrapper. Fold the wrapper edge opposite the tail over shrimp. Brush far edge of wrapper with water and, starting with near edge, roll wrapper loosely around shrimp, forming a package. Press seam firmly to seal.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 200°F and put a shallow rack in a baking pan. When oil reaches 375°F fry wontons in several batches so as not to crowd them, flipping midway through cooking, until medium golden brown, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. If shrimp begin to brown to quickly, reduce temperature. Lift shrimp out with tongs, draining excess oil, and transfer to baking pan; keep warm in oven.
    5. 5
      In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, the orange and lemon juices, marmalade, green onion, and 2 teaspoons ginger. Serve wontons hot, with dipping sauce on the side.

      I am one of 'those' people....yep, I hate cilantro, so I made 1/2 of these with, and 1/2 without. The ones with cilantro were well received by my guests, and I was asked for the recipe....I sure wasn't about to try them, however, I loved them plain with the dipping is absolutely wonderful. Apparently a very good recipe, with or without the cilantro....thank you.
