  • 6 ounces wonton wrappers (any size package will work)
  • 2 cups frying oil (or as needed)
  • table salt


  • Add enough oil to a heavy bottomed pot to fill it at least once inch deep.
  • Set pot over medium heat and bring frying oil to 350 degrees.
  • While oil is heating cut the wonton wrappers into strips.
  • Working in batches, add the strips to the hot oil and fry for approximately 30 seconds per batch, or until the wontons begin to turn a light brown.
  • Remove the wonton strips from the cooking oil and drain on a paper towel or wire rack. Immediately sprinkle lightly with salt.


Any size package of wonton wrappers will work fine. You can cook up as many, or as few, as you like.
Canola oil and peanut oil are my two top recommendations to use for frying.
It is important to sprinkle the strips with salt shortly after removing them from the oil because the oil will help the salt adhere better.
