Italian Golden Hat

Last week I make fried shrimp and pork wanton.Both Elliot and Mishu finished the whole plate within 30 minutes.I still left some wanton skin and Ricotta cheese from making lasagna.So the next day I try to figure out what should I do with the extra wanton skin and ricotta cheese.Usually my leftover food will go to trash after sitting weeks in the fridge.Suddenly I have an idea...how about baked wanton with ricotta cheese?.
Ingredients:
20 pc wanton skin
150 gm minced meat(pork ,chicken,beef or turkey)
10 clean shrimp chopped
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp white pepper
1 tsp sea salt
1 egg
1 tbsp corn starch
1/2 cup chopped spinach
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Method:
1:Preheat oven at 350 F.Mixed all the minced ingredients with all the seasoning well in a bowl except the cheese.
2:Fill the mixture about 2 tsp in each wanton skin.I used mini tart pan as the mold.(if you don't have tart pan muffin pan will do)
3:Top ricotta cheese on the minced mixture.Add shredded mozzarella cheese on top of ricotta cheese.Keep repeat the procedure .
4:Baked for 30 minutes on lower level in the oven.you don't want the skin to burn first before the meat is cook..
Deep fried version.I mixed both ricotta and mozzarella cheese with the filling.Wrapped in cap style and fried until golden brown.
Elliot prefer the deep fried version because the skin is crispy and crunchy.He said the baked version skin is dry and hard which it's true.I microwave the baked version and found the skin is quite soft.I prefer the baked version,I can feel the over powerful ricotta cheese favour which I liked.Furthermore it's more healthy.This baked version is ideal to serve as appetizer for any party function.

Yes,the baked one is really hard but microwave later the skin get softer.I like the filling taste in baked but like the skin in fried version

I guess Msia rarely use oven,mostly they like fried.When I was in Msia ,I don't even know how to use the oven,banyak susah to operate.But here out stove attach to oven,so just turn and "on" there you go..Ok.will check out your blog later.Thanks:)

These look great and I love how easy they appear to be - I bet this would be great with Scallops as well - Deep fried is the way to go - I guess it is time to invest in one!!

Cheers
