Fried Prawn Wonton Medium

Try making this simple Chinese dumpling at home.


  • 10 wonton wrappers
  • 150g raw prawns
  • 1/2 lime, zest only
  • 1 teaspoon of roughly chopped coriander leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  • 100g peas
  • Oil for frying


Chop the prawns up and mix with the lime zest, coriander, peas and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Get the wonton wrappers ready (they dry out quickly, so keep them covered with cling film).

Place a teaspoon of the filling in the wrapper, dab the edges with water and fold together. These can be done up to an hour ahead and kept in the fridge.

Deep fry the wontons at 190C for 3 minutes until golden and crunchy and the filling is cooked through.
