The crunch of this wok-fried appetizer is doubled with the addition of chopped pea pods and Bok choy.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 quart oil for frying
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons minced onion
- 1 medium head bok choy, chopped
- 2 tablespoons chopped snow peas
- 1 (6 ounce) can crab meat, drained
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 (14 ounce) package small won ton wrappers
Heat oil for frying in deep-fryer or large, heavy saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet. Add garlic and onion, and saute for 2 minutes. Add bok choy and pea pods, and stir fry until the bok choy and pea pods are crisp-tender.
In a large mixing bowl, combine crab, cream cheese, soy sauce and sauteed vegetable mixture. Drop mixture by 3/4 teaspoon into the center of a won ton wrapper. Fold the wrapper in half to make a triangle. Seal the wrapper around the mixture by wetting your finger with cold water and pressing the ends together.
In batches, fry the dumplings in the prepared oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
