This recipe has been a hit at EVERY party and it's so easy to make! I'm not sure how I got the recipe but it's ono (means 'delicious' in Hawaiian)!! I've received so many requests for the recipe, I've decided to add it. Even people who don't like Spam,
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 (12 ounce) container fully cooked luncheon meat (e.g. Spam), chopped
- 1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and chopped
- 3 tablespoons green onions, chopped
- 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- 3 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 1/2 tablespoons oyster sauce
- 1 (14 ounce) package square wonton wrappers
- 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
In a medium bowl, mix together the lunchmeat, water chestnuts, green onions, parsley, hard-cooked eggs, pepper, and oyster sauce. Set aside.
On a clean flat surface, such as a cutting board, lay out 4 to 6 wonton skins at a time. Place a tablespoon of the meat mixture into the center of each one. Keep a small bowl of water next to the work area to dip fingers in. Use wet fingers to moisten the corners of each wrapper. Quickly pinch all 4 corners together to seal in the filling. If it doesn't hold, use more water. Keep filled wontons covered with plastic wrap to prevent drying while the others are made.
Heat one inch of oil in a deep heavy skillet over medium-high heat, or heat recommended amount of oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Fry wontons for a few minutes on each side, or until golden. Remove to paper towels to absorb excess grease. Enjoy the grinds!
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.
