Fried Wonton strips cook deliciously crisp and are very easy to make. Only 2 ingredients are needed: wonton or eggroll wraps and oil.
They taste like the crispy strips that are served in most Asian restaurants. There's nothing like the texture and crunch of wonton strips and they're so easy to make at home. They prepare a great snack or serve them with soup or salad.
Really the only difference (I think) between wonton wrappers and egg roll wrappers is the size, the wonton wrappers are smaller. You should be able to find them in the refrigerated section or in your supermarket, usually near tofu.

The wrappers are easy to cut into strips with a knife or pizza wheel.
. You can cut them into the strip of any size you want. I like to cut the wraps of the egg rolls in half, stack them a lot, and cut them into strips 1/2 to 3/4-inch wide.
You don't need much oil to fry these wonton strips. An inch of oil is enough, and vegetable oil, canola oil, and peanut oil work well.
Heat the oil to about 360 degrees. If you don't have a thermometer
, try dropping a strip into the oil. If it starts to bubble immediately, the oil is very hot. If you find that the strips brown too quickly or start to burn, lower the heat.

- 1 packet of egg rolls or wonton wrappers, probably only use half
- vegetable canola or peanut oil
Cut the wrappers into strips about 3/4 inch by 3 inches long. You can stack them to do this quickly. If you use egg roll wrappers, you will need to cut them in half first and then into strips.
Heat about 1 inch of oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven. You want the oil to be around 360 degrees. Fry in batches, spreading them out so they don't stick. Remove with a slotted spoon when browned.
Drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
Fried Wonton strips should be crisp in an airtight container for at least several days.
