Ingredients

72 round wonton skins (approximately 3-inches in diameter)

2 to 3 liters canola oil, as needed for deep frying

1 tablespoon grape seed oil

3/4 pound ground pork

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 scallions, white and tender green parts only, sliced thinly on the bias

1 tablespoon peeled minced fresh ginger root

2 tablespoons soy sauce, plus more for serving, warmed

2 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons cornstarch

Directions

  1. Boil wonton skins in a large pot of water until al dente and drain well, Lay the wonton skins out on a waxed paper surface.
  2. Heat the oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F or as instructed by the manufacturer for similar foods.
  3. Heat the grape seed oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers, add the pork and season with salt and pepper. Cook until it begins to brown, stirring often. Spoon off any excess fat from the pan and add the scallions, ginger, and soy sauce. Cook until flavors are well integrated. Remove from heat and let rest.
  4. Create a slurry in a small bowl by gradually whisking 2 tablespoons water into the cornstarch.
  5. Spoon 1 teaspoon of the cooked pork mixture onto each of the wontons. Fold each over to enclose and seal the edges shut with the cornstarch slurry.
  6. Add the filled wontons to the basket of a deep fryer in batches to keep them from being overcrowded and possibly sticking together. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown and drain on paper towels.
  7. Serve warm with soy sauce.
