  • ½ lb prawns shelled and deveined
  • 10 pieces wonton wrappers
  • 1 tsp ginger minced
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp coriander chopped
  • ½ tsp white sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • ½ tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp cornstarch
  • pinch black pepper
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Finely chop the shrimp and combine it with garlic, ginger, coriander, sesame seeds, sesame oil, soy sauce, cornstarch, and black pepper. Mix well.
  • Place the wonton wrappers on a flat surface and spoon a teaspoon of the filling in the center of each wrapper.
  • Brush the edges with some water and form a triangle shape.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a deep pot to 350°F. Drop the prawn wontons in the hot oil and deep-fry them in batches until golden brown. Place the wontons on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  • Serve the prawn wontons with mayonnaise or a dip of your choice. Enjoy!


  • Always make sure your oil is heated to a temperature of 350°F. If the oil is too hot the wontons will cook too quickly and the filling won't be cooked enough. Wontons need around 4-5 minutes to cook.
