Citrus OreillettesIngredients

  • Vegetable oil for frying

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • The zest of 1 orange, 1 lemon, and 1 lime

  • Pinch of salt

  • 24 wonton wrappers (about half a pack)


  1. Heat about 1 to 2 inches of vegetable oil in a cast iron skillet, or saucepan, to 325°F.

  2. Cut the wonton wrappers into triangles by slicing them in half across the diagonal. Fry a few of them at a time, about 4 or 5 depending on the size of your pan, for about 10 to 20 seconds per side, until they are just turning golden. They will harden and even darken a touch when you remove them to a paper towel to drain.

  3. Pile up the oreillettes on a plate, and top with more freshly grated orange, lemon, and lime zest. Serve with tea or aperitifs in the afternoon.
