One of the reasons why wontons are so popular is that they are crispy and crunchy on the outside and delicious on the inside. You can either use wonton sheets as a base, arranging the “filling” on top, to make canapé-style snacks, or you can enclose the filling. The second option is more fun and nobody is going to imagine that your wontons contain a creamy salmon filling until they pop one into their mouth.

You only need five ingredients, plus cooking oil, for making this wonderful smoked salmon wontons recipe. Use red onion instead of green onion if you prefer or if that is all you have. This simple recipe is great if you are looking for buffet snacks or if you simply want something new to surprise your family with. These wontons can be enjoyed as they are or served with some kind of dip. Since they contain cream cheese, you will find that something contrasting is the best idea. Try sweet chili sauce or even spicy chili sauce.

You can get smoked salmon flavor cream cheese if you just want to make wontons that taste of salmon but if you want the texture of smoked salmon, you will need a package of that as well as cream cheese. As an alternative, try swapping the smoked salmon for chopped cooked shrimp. The result is similar and just as tasty. Imitation crab would be a good budget option.
