Fried Shrimp Dumplings (saucyspatula)

1 lb medium raw shrimp, minced
2 egg whites
2 T olive oil
1/2 t salt
1/2 t white pepper powder
1 t sesame oil
30 round wonton wrappers
oil for frying

Place shrimp in a big mixing bowl. Add egg whites, olive oil, salt, white pepper powder and sesame oil. Run your fingers clock or counter-clock wise until everything is well-blended together. Then form it into a ball shape. Take it with one hand, then smack it back into the bowl. Repeat that 10 times. Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap, refrigerate for 1 hour. Damp a paper towel and cover wonton wrappers when not in use, and place a small bowl of water at your work station. Spoon about 1 T filling onto the middle of the wonton wrapper. Dip your finger in water and run it on the outskirt of half of the wrapper. Pinch the middle point on top, and make pleats on both sides. The tighter you can wrap a dumpling the better.Heat oil to 350° F over medium-high heat. Carefully monitor your oil temp. Fry no more than 4 dumplings at a time. Fry each side for about 1 1/2 min until golden brown. Place cooked dumplings on a plate lined with paper towels. Serves about 24.
