Instructions

  1. In a pan on medium-high heat, add olive oil and shrimp. Season will a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until opaque then remove from the pan. Try not to overcook, they will become rubbery. Cut shrimp into bite-sized pieces, about 1/2 inch. 

  2. In a medium bowl, mix together shrimp, shallots, ginger, mayo, Sriracha, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Taste and adjust to your liking. 

  3. To make the wonton chips: Heat a large splash of oil in a pan on medium heat. You'll know when it's ready when you drop a wonton in and it starts to bubble and brown after 15 seconds. In batches, fry wontons until they are golden brown, then remove, place of a paper towel, and sprinkle lightly with salt.
  4. Spoon shrimp mixture over wonton chips. Garnish with scallions and enjoy!
