king prawn and salmon crispy wontons.

Salmon wontons recipe

With 2016 seeing in the Chinese New Year of the Fire Monkey, what better time to be inspired by some delicious and super simple Chinese recipes. I especially love making Oriental inspired appetisers, and since I learnt how easy it is to make your own wonton pastry at home I've loved creating new flavours, fillings and shapes. 

Featuring Blue Dragon light soy sauce, I've created some crispy king prawn and salmon wontons that go perfectly with a squeeze of lime and their sweet chilli dipping sauce. Serve as a sociable starter at a Chinese dinner party - ideal to make ahead and fry off when you're ready to indulge!

Shopping list.

For the wonton pastry, makes twelve.
♥ 75g strong white flour, such as pasta flour
♥ 50ml boiling water
♥ Plain flour for dusting

For the filling

♥ One salmon fillet 
♥ 50g king prawns, chopped into 1cm pieces
♥ 1 tbsp light soy sauce
♥ 2 tsp coriander stalks, chopped
♥ 1 tsp chilli flakes
♥ 1 garlic clove, crushed
♥ A squeeze of lime

To serve

♥ Sweet chilli dipping sauce
♥ Fresh lime

Preparation time: 1hr 30 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Equipment; Cling film, foil, baking tray, rolling pin, circle cutter, frying pan.

Step one. Combine the flour and boiling water and form into a ball. Wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for at least an hour. 

Step two. Wrap the salmon fillet in foil and cook for 20 minutes on a baking tray.

Step three. When the salmon has cooled, mix together with the prawns and other ingredients to make your filling.

Step four. When your pastry is ready, simply roll out on a floured surface and cut out circles. Then, like the diagram below add a little mixture to the wrapper, fold, seal with water and pinch to make a wonton!

Serve up immediately with your sweet chilli dipping sauce and a slice of fresh lime. Enjoy!
