Fire wontons

No one ever expects wontons… or is that the Spanish Inquisition? Either way, wontons are a great way to give someone a little culinary kick for a number of reasons. First, they don't really have a reputation for being spicy and second, you can't exactly see what is in them until you take a bite. By then, it's too late for your poor victim as they're already eating these excruciatingly delicious wontons.

Yields 24 wontons


  • 2 tablespoons peanut or olive oil
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 green onions, minced
  • 2 tablespoons ground Sichuan pepper
  • 4 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 1 Thai chili, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 24 wonton wraps
  • 1 egg
  • Oil for frying


  1. Put the oil in a skillet or wok and let it get hot. Then add all of the ingredients except for the wonton wraps, egg and oil. Sauté until the pork is fully cooked.
  2. When the pork is done, set the mixture aside to cool and lay out the wonton wraps.
  3. Make an egg wash by beating the egg with a tablespoon of water and brush it on two edges of the wonton wrap. Add a heaping teaspoon of filling into each one and close to make a triangle.
  4. Get the frying oil hot over medium-high heat and fry the wontons until golden brown.
