Light and refreshing, these wontons make a great weeknight meal or party appetizer. A fun twist on a tostada, you will love the texture of the tangy slaw paired with a touch of heat and crispy crunch of the fried wonton. Wontons fry very quickly, so work fast. Before you start fryling, set up a station with paper towels to drain oil from wrappers. To make wonton salad bowls, use a ladle to push down on the center of the wrapper while it’s frying. Fry a few seconds longer on this side, and flip.
These bites taste exactly like the honey sesame chicken from Panda Express, if not better! And since you can only get it a few weeks out of the year from them, why not whip up your own giant batch?! This recipe also freezes great! Spread out on a pan or cookie sheet, and freeze individually before placing in a freezer-safe container or bag. Then either place back in a pan or bake until heated through for a quick and easy meal. (You can also microwave, but you won’t get the same satisfying crunch.)
