Mango Shrimp Wanton

I had a very ripe mango in my pantry the other day and I just don't know what to do with it as I don't want to make any dessert out of it. Then I remember seeing this wonderful appetizer at Hip Food blog that used mango with wanton wrappers and decided to make some. It turn out really nice and not difficult to make at all.

Ingredients :

25 medium size shrimp - shelled and deveined
a small bunch of cilantro - chopped
1 small red chili - chopped
1/2 tsp of salt
1 tbsp of oyster sauce
dash of white pepper
1 tsp of corn starch
1/2 ripe mango - cut into small pieces
25 pieces of wanton wrappers

1) Marinate shrimps with salt, pepper, oyster sauce, cilantro, chili and corn starch and set aside for 20 minutes.
2) Place a shrimp, a piece of mango at the center of the wanton wrappers. Brush the edges with some water and fold it. Seal it really tight.
3) Heat up some oil and deep fry until golden brown. It will take about 2 minutes. Drain the oil on paper towel.
4) Serve with some chili sauce.
