Shrimp and Spring Asparagus Fried Wontons

This is a unique and delicious dish. The flavors of the plump shrimp, asparagus and hanpen fish cake are all enhanced by the yogurt. Enjoy this with sweet chili sauce!

Ingredients: 5~6 people

Vannamei or whiteleg shrimp
10
Asparagus
1 bunch
Hanpen (large)
1
Sugar
3 g
Plain yogurt
2 tablespoons

30 wrappers
Oil (for frying)
As needed

Steps

1. Peel the shrimp and rinse them in 1 tablespoon sake (not listed), remove the veins, and cut into pieces a little smaller than 2 cm.
2. Remove the skin off the bottom half of the asparagus with a vegetable peeler, and cut into pieces a little smaller than 2 cm.
3. Finely chop the hanpen.

Story Behind this Recipe

I always add in shiso and garlic to this.
But today, I found reeeeeally delicious asparagus, so while leaving the taste of the ingredients intact, I made this so it could be enjoyed with sweet chili sauce ♬
