A simplified version of this dish is being sold by vendors in the historic port of Hoi An in central Vietnam: there, the ingredients are stir-fried and served on top of the deep-fried wonton wrappers. However, we like the surprise package of the enclosed wontons.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 spring onions
350g crab meat
100g pork mince
2 cm knob ginger, grated
1/3 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
48 wonton wrappers
5 tomatoes
1/2 handful coriander leaves, roughly chopped
1/2 long red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
1/3 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons fish sauce
oil, for deep-frying

Method

  1. Thinly slice the spring onions. Set aside half the green part for the salsa and discard the remaining green part. Combine the white part with the crab, pork, ginger, pepper and salt. Mix well.
  2. Place a wonton wrapper on a board and top with a spoonful of the crab mixture. Dampen the edges of the wrapper and then place another wonton wrapper on top. Squeeze to remove any air, then press the edges together to seal. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  3. To make the salsa, remove the seeds from the tomatoes, then cut the tomatoes into 5 mm dice. Place in a bowl with the reserved spring onion, coriander leaves, chilli, sugar and fish sauce.
  4. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan or wok and deep-fry the wontons in batches until cooked through. Drain well on paper towel.
  5. Serve the wontons hot, topped with the tomato salsa.
