Ingredients
  • 3 (16-ounce) packages wonton skins, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • Salt
  • Slaw:
  • 1/2 pound snow peas
  • 1/2 pound radishes
  • 1/2 pound carrots
  • 3 tablespoons black sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves
  • 3 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • Marinade:
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons black sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 60 large shrimp, peeled, deveined, and cooked (about 3 pounds)
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Arrange wonton skins in single layer on a flat surface. Cut out circles using a 2-inch cookie cutter. Lightly coat baking sheets with sesame oil, transfer rounds to pan. Drizzle wontons with a little sesame oil, season, to taste, with salt. Bake until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Let cool completely. The wonton crackers may be made several days ahead and stored at room temperature in an airtight container.

Blanch the snow peas in a large pot of rapidly boiling water for 1 minute. Drain well then rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process. Julienne the snow peas, radishes, and carrots, place them in a large bowl. Add sesame seeds, mint, and ginger. Whisk together the marinade ingredients in a separate mixing bowl, pour 1/2 the marinade over the slaw, toss to coat.

Remove the shrimp tails and discard. Split the shrimp in half lengthwise and place in a large bowl. Pour the remaining marinade over the shrimp.

To assemble: place a small amount of snow pea slaw on wonton cracker. Top with 2 shrimp halves, cut side down. Garnish with black sesame seeds and mint before serving.
