I made these for an Asian themed party at my house, and they were delish! Crispy and full of flavor, these are sure to be a treat at your next social event!
- 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
- 1 bunch green onion, use all but the white part, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons garlic juice, I used some from a jar of chopped garlic in juice
- 8 ounces lobsters or 8 ounces imitation lobster meat, finely chopped
- 30 wonton wrappers
- 1 egg, mixed with
- 2 tablespoons water
- canola oil, to deep fry won tons
- Chinese duck sauce or plum sauce, for dipping
- Put your cream cheese in a glass dish and microwave for 45 secs.
- Chop your green onions finely, and add to cream cheese.
- Add your lemon and garlic juice, and mix well.
- Chop your lobster finely, or use the blender. Add to cream cheese mixture, and mix in well.
- Put 30 won ton wrappers onto a lg. flat baking pan, I used a cookie sheet.
- Place a teaspoonful of mixture into the center of each won ton wrapper.
- Mix the egg and 2 T. of water together well. With 2 fingers, dip into the egg wash then rub around the edge of each won ton.
- Taking the bottom right tip of the won ton, bring it up to meet the top left tip, and press around the edges to make a seal, so the cream cheese mixture doesn't come out when deep frying.
- When all 30 won tons are done, put in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
- When ready to deep fry, heat your oil to 350 degrees F.
- Turn on your oven to 200.
- Drop 6 won tons in at a time and fry on one side, then flip and fry on the other. Place on a layer of 4 paper towels to absorb grease, then place in an oven proof dish, and put in oven to keep warm while the next batch is cooking.
- Serve with Duck or Plum Sauce for dipping.
These are to die for good! What a treat they were while we were watching tv the other night!
I splurged and bought a lobster to make this. I had friends coming over for a Chinese dinner and I wanted to have something different and special. This fit the bill, as they were amazing! I served with duck sauce to dip them in and we ate every last one before dinner!
I made these for DH and I for our anniversary. Believe it or not we ate every single one! I had some Chinese duck sauce that we dipped them in and they were so moreish we couldn't stop munching out on them until they were gone! I will have these any time I want a real yummy appy to impress everyone with! These are going in my 'To Make Again' recipes! Thank you!
