Fried Wonton Strips - only 2 ingredients needed


Fried Wonton Strips cook up deliciously crispy and they are a cinch to make . Only 2 ingredients needed: wonton or eggroll wrappers and oil.

They taste just like the crunchy strips you are served at most Asian restaurants. There is nothing like the texture and crunch of wonton strips and they are so easy to make at home. They make a great snack or serve them with soup or salad.

Really the only difference (I think) between wonton wrappers and egg rolls wrappers is the size, wonton wrappers being smaller. You should be able to find them in the refrigerated section or your grocery store, usually near the tofu.

The wrappers are easy to cut into strips with a knife or a Pizza Wheel. You can cut them into any size strip you want. I like to cut the egg roll wrappers in half, stack a bunch, and cut them into strips about 1/2 to 3/4-inch wide.

You don’t need much oil to fry these wonton strips in. An inch of oil is plenty and vegetable oil, canola oil, and peanut oil all work well.

Heat the oil to about 360 degrees. If you don’t have a Thermometer, test by dropping one strip into the oil. If it starts to bubble right away, the oil is plenty hot. If you find the strips are browning too fast or starting to burn, turn the heat down.

Fried Wonton Strips - only 2 ingredients needed

Fried Wonton Strips


  • 1 package egg roll or wonton wrappers you will probably only use half
  • vegetable canola, or peanut oil


  • Cut wrappers into strips about 3/4-inch by 3 inches long. You can stack them to do this quickly. If using egg roll wrappers, you will want to cut them in half first and then into strips.
  • Heat about 1 inch of oil in a large pan or Dutch oven. You want the oil to be around 360 degrees. Fry in batches, spreading them out so they don't stick. Remove with a slotted spoon when they turn golden brown.
  • Drain on paper towel-lined plate.


Fried Wonton Strips should stay crispy in an airtight container for at least several days.

  1. This will be my first time making the fried wontons. Can I use corn oil if that’s the only thing available that’s already been bought?

  2. Hot and Sour soup is just not the same without these and a heaping mound of green onion bits on top. Ok, talked myself into it, I’m having Hot and Sour Soup tonight…

    If they don’t puff up, the oil is not nearly hot enough. Or, there were too many in the pan, and the crowding took down the temp!

    I love the idea of something crunchy with my salad or other yummy meals, but I would however don;t want the added fat. So I cut up some won ton wrappers in strips…sprayed a cookie sheet with avocado oil spray….layed the strips on and gave them a flip so there was a bit of oil on each side….Baked in the oven (watch them close Add they were fantastic !! Thanks for the wonton strip idea!

    1. Hi Siobhan,

      Great idea! I want to try that too. Just wondering, what temp did you cook them at and for approximately how long? 🙂
