Directions for Wonton Wrapper Crisps Soup

Cooking Tip

Wonton wrappers can be deep-fried ahead of time, if kept in an airtight container, will remain crisp for more than a week. With some salt sprinkled on them, they are quite a novelty to serve with drinks. Cantonese roast duck, is also available in some Cantonese restaurants, whole or in portions.

1. Half fill a wok or a deep-fryer with oil. Heat to a temperature of about 180°C (350°F) or until a cube of stale bread browns in 60 seconds. Add a batch of wonton wrappers, about 20 at a time; they will sizzle and expand at once. Remove to kitchen paper before they turn brown, using a hand strainer or perforated disc. Repeat until all are done.

2. Put the duck, crabmeat, bamboo shoots and straw mushrooms into the stock and bring to the boil. Add the salt, pepper and soy sauce. Add the white spring onion and finally, the wonton wrappers. (It is always better to add the wonton wrappers at the last moment so that they retain their crispness.) Dunk them with a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat and add the green spring onion.

3. Serve immediately, either from a communal bowl or in individual bowls.
