How To Make Tuna Wontons

Tuna Wontons? Dev takes Natalie back to his school days with this simple yet tasty recipe.

Note: this is the base recipe that yields 16-18 wontons, you can simply duplicate it to double

the yield.


For the wontons:

1 tin tuna in oil, unflavoured and drained

1 chopped garlic clove

1 tbsp chopped chive

2 tsp sesame oil

2 tsp soy sauce

Dash of white pepper

Wonton skins and cup of water for folding

Vegetable Oil for deep frying

For the Ginger Scallion oil:

1 tbsp chopped ginger

1 tbsp chopped garlic

1 tbsp chopped chive

Pinch of salt


Prep the ingredients for the ginger scallion oil first. Place all in a metal bowl or deep plate,

one that can handle heat. NO PLASTIC. Set aside.

Mix all ingredients for the tuna wontons together.

Place ½ tsp of tuna mixture on to the wonton skin, fold as appropriate (see video)

Place wok or similar deep pot on stove, fill with enough oil to deep fry. Set on high heat.

When the oil is slightly before ready to fry, use a metal ladle, and take out one portion of

hot oil. Gently pour this hot oil on the ginger scallion mixture. It should be enough to cover

the mixture. Sprinkle of salt, mix together well. You want to be able to just scald the

mixture. Set aside.

Let the oil get to frying heat, then place all wontons in oil. Fry for about 5 mins, or until the

appropriate colour is achieved (slightly golden brown).

Lift out and place on paper to drain.

Serve with the ginger scallion oil.
