  • Fold into triangles and brush inside edges with the egg yolk and seal the wonton tightly, taking care to remove air for the ┬ápackage.
  • Heat 3 to 4 inch of oil in a large sauce pan or deep fryer. Bring oil temp to 350 to 360 degrees.
  • Add wontons a few at a time and fry for about 30 seconds or until golden brown.
