    LifeIsGood's Note:

    Credit goes to Tyler Florence. These are such decadent wontons. I love these as an appetizer to an authentic Chinese meal. You can serve these alone or with a dipping sauce of your choice (I like a sweet and sour sauce).

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    wontons

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat a skillet over med. heat and put in a 1 count drizzle of oil.
    2. 2
      Saute the ginger, shallot and carrot for 2 minutes, to soften.
    3. 3
      Put the crabmeat in a bowl and scrape in the ginger mixture.
    4. 4
      Fold in the remaining ingredients (up to the wonton wrappers) and season with salt and pepper. Please don't mash the crabmeat - you want the bigger pieces!
    5. 5
      Lay a wonton wrapper on a flat surface and brush with the beaten egg white.
    6. 6
      Drop 1 T. of the crab filling onto the center of the wrapper - then fold the wonton in half, corner to corner, to form a triangle.
    7. 7
      Press around the filling and ease out any air bubbles. Then press the seam together to seal, so the filling doesn't seep out when fried.
    8. 8
      Lightly dust the filled wontons with cornstarch to keep them from sticking and then put them on a cookie sheet.
    9. 9
      In a heavy pot - or wok - heat 2 to 3 inches of peanut oil over med-high heat. The oil should take about 15 minutes to heat up.
    10. 10
      Sprinkle a tiny bit of cornstarch in the hot oil; if it sizzles, it's ready! (It should be about 350 degrees F.).
    11. 11
      Drop about 5 wontons into the oil, one at a time so they don't stick together, and fry for about 5 minutes, until crisp, turning frequently.
    12. 12
      Remove with a strainer or slotted spoon and drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
    13. 13
      Let the oil come back up to temperature and fry the remaining wontons.
