wontons are really easy to make and delicious, too! pick up a pack of wrappers at the grocery and get creative.
i made these avocado wontons the other night and they were an instant hit!
you will need:
1 ripe hass avocado, lightly mashed
crushed garlic to taste
1" grated fresh ginger
lemon or lime zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon or lime juice
2 tablespoons italian parsley, basil or cilantro, chopped
dried chipotle powder or a few shakes of hot sauce to taste
1 tablespoon soy sauce
4 ounces goat cheese
salt and pepper to taste
combine all of the ingredients above in a small bowl.
layout 20 or more wonton wrappers on a board. brush each wrapper with a whisked mixture of egg thinned with a little soy sauce. place a slightly heaping teaspoon of the avocado-goat cheese mixture in the center of each wrapper, fold diagonally and press to seal. cook wontons in hot oil ( i used olive oil with a little sesame oil) until golden on each side. serve with duck sauce.
melt orange or apricot marmalade on the stove or in the microwave with some crushed garlic. add a little fish or soy sauce to taste and blend well.

yes, i know: american's tend to drop the f-bomb frequently, for all types of situations: some good, some bad...but that doesn't make it ok to use it as a pop-inspired superlative 'sale' announcement, even in a foreign country. i don't know though: i AM interested in what's on sale inside: it sounds so kick-ass!
