Crispy Wontons

Asia, I have to say, is my favourite continent in the world. Of course I love my country, but each time I have gone to a new country in Asia I have fallen more and more in love with it: the culture, the food and the people. Asia holds near and dear to both me and my boyfriend, I have been to Thailand, Shanghai and Vietnam, with a quick lay over in Taiwan with my Dad and Step mom, and my boyfriend has done humanitarian trips in Thailand and Cambodia. So it is easy to say that Asian food is just as important to us!

 

We cook Asian food quite often. There is always ingredients in our house that can whip up a quick meal and also enough ingredients to experiment. The most recent endeavor was to make gyoza, but quickly turned into wonton. Either way, it was super yummy, very time-consuming and was a fun assembly line with boyfriend.

Whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce and serve on the side or on top.

 

This recipe is super easy, but super time-consuming. We found having an assembly line was the easiest way to do it. A little goes a long way. We had dinner, lunch and took some to share with our co-workers. Everyone gave us the seal of approval!

 

Enjoy!!!
