Step 3: In a small bowl, beat the other egg. On the twelve wantons, brush and even the layer of the beaten egg. On each wonton, spread around 1 tsp of the shrimp filling.
Step 4: Into the hot oil, carefully drop about 3 to 4 wontons, shrimp-side down, and cook for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes until the bottom of the wontons is golden. Adjust the heat accordingly, if the wontons cook too fast or too long. Flip the wontons once and fry the other side for another 15 seconds. To a cooling rack, transfer the wonton chips.
