Appetizer: Pan-Fried Cream Cheese Wontons
Entrée: Orange Chicken with Asparagus & Almonds, and Steamed Rice
Dessert: Fresh Fruit Trifle
Pan-Fried Cream Cheese Wontons
Creamy on the inside, crisp on the outside... delicious!
8 Wonton Wrappers
½ cup cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon soy sauce
½ teaspoon ground ginger
1 green onion, diced
Oil, for frying
-In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, soy sauce, ginger and green onion.
-Place wonton wrappers on a flat surface. Using a small spoon, carefully spoon cream cheese mixture into the middle of each wrapper.
-Moisten edges of wonton wrappers with water, and fold each wrapper in half diagonally, making a triangle.
-Press around edges to seal.
-Heat oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. When oil reaches 350 degrees (or bubbles when a wonton is put it), carefully place four wontons at a time in the skillet, careful not to overcrowd.
-Fry wontons for one to two minutes on each side, or until each side is light brown.
-Carefully remove from oil and let drain on paper towels. Repeat with second batch of wontons.
