Wonton recipe fried shrimp. I like Cantonese dim sum and wonton soup. There are small dumplings, steamed buns and various main dishes in the bamboo basket.

The golden yellow crispy shrimp dumplings are called “prawns” in Cantonese. This is one of my favorite breads; whenever I have a snack, I always order them.

If you like dim sum, you should try this recipe, because homemade fried shrimp dumplings are as similar to dim sum restaurants, or even better. In addition, it is easy to make!

Dish out with a strainer or slotted spoon, draining the excess oil with paper towels. Serve warm with the mayonnaise.
