These little guys make awesome hors d'oeuvre, as well as elegant entrées. Here I've made crab, shrimp, and lobster balls, and I'll show you how to do it!

Step 1: You will need...

Ingredients:
1 pound of Sea-Meat. (Crab, Shrimp, Lobster, etc)
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 tablespoon oil (or bacon fat)
1 teaspoon of finely ground salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 egg white, lightly beaten
A few dashes of white pepper powder
Wonton skins

Tools:
Wok / deep fryer
measuring cups
bowl and whisk
knife and cutting board
small food processor

Step 3: Cut it up

Slice the wonton sheets into thin strips...
And for Reason's sake, don't do it one at a time!

Next, make a bed of wonton strips for your balls.

Step 4: Roll it up

With wet hands, form the gooey goodness into small balls and roll 'em around on the bed of wonton skins. Make sure to thoroughly coat your balls. If needed, wet your hands while forming to keep the skins down.

Step 5: Fry it up

Deep fry your balls in a  wok (or deep fryer) until they turn golden brown. (I let 'em cook for about about 60-80 seconds) I used roughly 3/4 of a 48oz bottle of vegetable oil.

If you have any leftover wonton strips, toss 'em in for some delicious little crunchies!

Don't be a Richard and pour the oil down the drain! You can re-use it by sifting it back into an empty container with cheesecloth or a thin cloth napkin.
