Ingredients:  
Won Ton wrappers
Oil for frying
1/2 pound uncooked shrimp
1/4 ground pork (not sausage), browned
6 small water chestnuts
1/4 cup green onion
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1 slightly beaten egg white for sealing won tons

Directions:
Directions:
Finely chop shrimp, green onion and water chestnuts. Add the cooked ground pork. Mix together with the cornstarch, salt, and sesame oil.

Place one small (maybe a tsp) of mixture in the middle of a won ton wrap. Put a little egg white on 2 adjacent sides of won ton. Fold over diagnonally to make a triangle, then fold side corners in and roll up tightly. Sounds complicated, but once you do one, you'll see how easy it is. These take some assembly time, but they are fantastic.

Fry in oil just a few minutes, turning when lightly brown. I've made these ahead for parties and reheated them in the oven and they crisp up again just fine. Serve with plum sauce or an Asian chili/fire sauce.
