Florida Seafood Recipe

Alligator Wonton with Orange Ginger Sauce

Seafood-4321
Ingredients  
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, finely diced
1 tablespoon garlic, finely minced
3 tablespoons ginger, freshly grated
1/2 pound shrimp, peeled, finely chopped
3 canned water chestnuts, drained, finely chopped
1/2 pound lean gator meat, ground
1/2 cup scallions, chopped
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
2 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine or dry sherry
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 package prepared wonton wrappers (12)
  canola oil for frying
 

Preparation
Heat olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat then add onion, garlic and ginger; sauté until translucent and set aside to cool. When cool, combine onion mixture, chopped shrimp, water chestnuts and remaining ingredients (except wonton skins) in a large bowl mixing well. To assemble, lay one wrapper on a cutting board and moisten all edges of the wrapper with water. Place a tablespoon of wonton filling in the center of wrapper and fold in half diagonally over filling. Make sure the edges meet and press edges down firmly to seal. Press down on filling to flatten slightly; repeat with remaining wontons. In a deep-fryer, heat canola oil to 375 degrees F. Fry wontons in small batches for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown, turning occasionally. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with Orange Ginger Sauce.
