Wonton Crisps



  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Thermometer
  • Baking sheets lined with paper towel, for draining
  • Salt (or sugar/cinnamon) for dusting


  1. Cut wonton squares diagonally or into strips. Heat the oil to 350° in deep skillet or pan. Maintain that temperature throughout the frying process.
  2. Carefully place wontons in the oil, they will quickly float, turn them and remove when lightly browned. Move quickly, they take less than a minute to fry.
  3. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and put on paper towels to drain. If adding salt or seasonings, do so while they are still hot. Repeat.
  4. This makes a large batch of crisps but they keep well in a large jar. You can also make these a sweet treat by dusting them with cinnamon and sugar instead of salt!
