EXECUTIVE CHEF STEPHEN SHIRES - SAMBUCA RESTAURANT
8 oz Shrimp -peeled (any size, just no shell, tail, head)(frozen)
4 oz Crab Meat - Pasteurized; lump, Backfin, claw (canned)
1 lb Cream Cheese - softened
1 bunch Green Onions - top cut off, diced
1/2 tsp Blackening Seasoning
1 t soy sauce
1/2 tbsp butter
1 Package Wonton Wrappers
2 eggs - whipped
Chop shrimp into small pieces. Heat large sauté pan and add butter. Once butter is bubbling add the shrimp. Toss and add Blackening seasoning.
Add cream cheese that has been softened (microwave for 2 minutes) Stir with a wooden spoon and add soy sauce, crabmeat and green onion. Once the mix has been combined, pour into a casserole dish and cool to create filling.
Place wonton squares on a cutting board and paint with egg wash. Scoop a half-ounce of filling into the center of the square wrappers. With four fingers, press in the middle of all four sides of the wrapper square. This creates a wonton flower. Press to create a seal. Cool for an hour, no longer.
Drop into deep fat fryer at 350 degrees, and cook for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown.
