Shrimp Wontons with Asian Sauce

I love these! They are so yummy and great as an appetizer or serve with a fresh ginger and teriyaki salad.

Shrimp Wontons with Asian Sauce

  • 1 pkg cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 lb cooked salad shrimp
  • 1 pkg wonton wrappers
  • 2-3 cups oil
Sauce 1
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki marinade (should be thick)
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
Sauce 2
  • 2 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp corn starch
Mix cream cheese, garlic powder, and lemon juice in a bowl. Spoon 1 tsp of mixture with 1 tsp salad shrimp onto wanton papers and fold. Pour 1-2 cups oil into a pot and bring to a boil on medium high. Fry wontons 6-7 at a time until they float to surface (you can also use less oil and fry in a saucepan, just be sure to turn them over and brown all sides until crispy). Place on a paper towel to drain oil and serve right away.

1st Sauce - Add soy sauce, teriyaki marinade, ginger, sesame seeds, and sliced green onions in a small saucepan and cook on medium high for 5-10 minutes.

2nd Sauce - Mix vinegar, minced garlic, brown sugar, pineapple juice, ginger, ketchup and salt into medium saucepan. Stir in 2/3 Tbsp cornstarch until dissolved. Bring mixture to a boil and remove from heat. Stir 1-2 minutes.

Dip wontons in sauces and enjoy!
