No one would ever believe that these crisp, creamy wontons are actually baked, not fried! Plus, they’re unbelievably easy and simple – perfect for a large crowd!
- 8 ounces medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and roughly chopped
- 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon Sriracha, optional
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 16 2-inch wonton wrappers
- 1 large egg, beaten
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
- In a large bowl, combine shrimp, cream cheese, garlic, green onions, ginger, sesame oil and Sriracha, if using; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- To assemble the wontons, place wrappers on a work surface. Spoon 1 1/2 teaspoons of the mixture into the center of each wrapper. Using your finger, rub the edges of the wrappers with egg. Fold all sides over the filling to create an “X”, pinching the edges to seal.
- Place wontons in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet; coat with nonstick spray. Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.
- Serve immediately.
