The perfect appetizer or afternoon snack. Quick and easy to make with only three ingredients plus oil for frying. I have to admit, I love pretty much anything fried, and with cream cheese you really can't go wrong. These are pretty rich, but oh so good! Sometimes instead of a proper Sunday dinner, I make up several different appetizers and everyone loves it. Check out the appetizer category for more ideas.
8 oz softened cream cheese
8 oz smoked salmon, shredded
Heat about 2 inches of oil in a heavy pot or cast iron skillet to about 350 degrees. Mix cream cheese and salmon together and place a teaspoon full on a wonton wrapper. Dip your finger in a little water and wet all edges of wrapper. Fold in half to make a triangle, sealing edges and then fold two corners together meeting in the middle. Repeat with remaining filling. Fry a few puffs at a time until lightly browned. Remove to drain on paper towel lined plate. Serve hot or at room temperature.
