My family loves ordering crab wontons (Crab Rangoon) when we eat at Chinese restaurants, so I decided to come up with my own version. These are delicious, and there are very few ingredients involved!
Easy Crab Wontons: 1 8 oz. cube Cream Cheese (room temperature) 6 oz can white crabmeat (or real crab) drained 3 green onions finely chopped 1/2 tsp. soy sauce 1/4 tsp. garlic powder Peanut oil for frying (or vegetable oil can be used) Water Small square wonton wrappers Sweet and sour sauce for dipping (optional) In large bowl, combine cream cheese, crabmeat, green onions, soy sauce and garlic powder. Mix well.
Arrange wonton wrappers on large surface, and fill a small bowl with water. Start by dipping your finger in the water, and spreading it on the edges of the wrappers. Put approx. 1 tsp on each wrapper (about 1/4″ in from the edge). Fold in half and press down to remove air and seal edges. You should now have a triangle. Put a dab of water on one corner and gently fold up so that the two corners meet and press together tightly. Fold over the tips and press again.
In large skillet, heat peanut oil (about 1/2″) to medium high. Gently place wontons flat side down in oil. Fry until bubbly and golden, then turn over. These don’t take long to cook, so keep a good eye on them!
Remove and drain on paper towels. Dip in Sweet and Sour sauce and enjoy!
