Wild Turkey Breast Won Tons

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped wild turkey breast, skin removed
  • 3 green onions, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh gingerroot, peeled and minced
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1/3 cup jack cheese
  • 25 won ton wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup cold water
  • oil for frying
  • salt

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey and stir fry until lightly browned. Add remaining ingredients except cheese and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Transfer all to a bowl and allow to cool. When cooled, chop mixture into pea-sized pieces (or pulse in a food processor). Stir in cheese. Lay won ton wrappers on a flat surface. Press together about 1 teaspoon of the turkey mixture on the center of each wrapper. Wet the edges of each wrapper with the cornstarch mixture. Fold wrapper in a triangle, pressing down around the filling and sealing the edges with your fingers. Carefully place won tons, one or two at a time, into hot (360 degree) oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and season with salt while hot.

Notes

Before you process or cook a wild turkey breast, use a sharp knife to remove the gristly silverskin than runs through part of the muscle. If your wild turkey breast is tough and dry, that’s right, you overcooked it.
