Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Cook the bacon in a saucepan over medium heat until the bacon is limp, and is beginning to release its grease, about 3 minutes. Stir in the onion, and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Scrape the onion mixture into a mixing bowl, and stir in the cream cheese, hot pepper sauce, Worcestershire sauce, dill, and crawfish tails. Gently fold in the crabmeat, then season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • To make the wontons: Separate and place the wonton wrappers onto your work surface. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the seafood filling onto the center of each wrapper. Use your finger or a pastry brush to lightly moisten the edges of the wonton wrappers with the beaten egg. Fold each corner of the wrapper over the filling, and press together over the center of the won ton. Press the edges together to seal.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Fry the won tons in the hot oil until they turn golden brown and float, about 2 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate before serving.

I made this for a wine club party and it was the hit of the party. Not a single one left! I used baby shrimp instead of crawfish. Yummy! I also added diced jalapeño for a little heat and served them with a spicy plum sauce. My husband wants me to make it for just the 2 of us. Easy and delicious. Doesn't get any better than that:) Read More

I made this for a NYE party. Everyone loved it and it was easy to make. I used trinity seasoning instead of just onion. I think it needs a little sugar or more creamed cheese. I also added more crawfish. I joined the corners of the wonton to make a triangle shape instead...and a tablespoon deemed to be a bit too much stuffing. But all in all....I received several raves and request to make it again. Read More
