Pinsec Frito (Filipino Fried Wonton)

Pinsec prito or pinsec frito is very similar to the popular siomai, the filling and the wanton wrapper. The only difference is the shape of pinsec frito is usually triangular instead of the round shaped siomai. Actually this is the Pinoy version of fried wonton. There can be also differences of ingredients used on the filling. Some use pork, chicken, crab meat, shrimp or beef. This pinsec frito recipe I have here use beef and shrimp plus the extenders, mexican turnip (or jicama) and carrots for the filling.
