Make It

Bourbon Duck Sauce:

1. In small saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add red pepper, ginger and garlic; saute 1 minute. Add bourbon; cook 30 seconds. Stir in duck sauce; cook 1 minute; set aside.


2. In large bowl, combine coleslaw mix, mushrooms, scallions, red pepper, cilantro, soy, sugar, salt.

3. Heat oven to 200 degrees F. Line large baking sheet with paper towels.

4. Place a heaping teaspoon of filling onto center of each wonton wrapper. Brush edges with water. Bring edges up and over filling in center; pinch to seal to make a little package or bundle. Place packages on prepared baking sheet.

5. In deep-fat fryer or large saucepan, heat oil until it registers 375 degrees F on deep-fat frying thermometer. Fry about 10 bundles at a time in hot oil 2 to 3 minutes or until golden. Adjust heat as necessary to maintain oil temperature. With skimmer or slotted spoon, remove packages to towel-lined baking sheet. Keep warm in 200 degrees F oven. Serve with sauce. Packages can be fried a day ahead and refrigerated. Reheat in 400 degrees F oven 6 minutes.
