Seasoned wonton wrappers are baked to a golden brown. They're served alongside a chowder packed with corn, watercress and perfectly poached chunks of arctic char.



  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Brush the wonton wrappers with the vegetable oil and sprinkle with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Cut the wanton wrappers into triangles and bake on a baking sheet until golden and crisp, about 6 minutes.
  3. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat, add the onions and cook until softened, about 6 minutes. Stir in the flour, 3/4 teaspoons salt and a couple turns of black pepper until well incorporated. Whisk the milk into the onions and bring to a boil. Stir in the creamed corn and bring to a boil, then remove from the heat. Stir in the char and watercress and let sit until the fish is just cooked through, about 8 minutes. Serve with the wonton crackers.
