Wonton wrappers are filled with cream cheese, crab meat (I use imitation, but you can use either), garlic, and onions. You just have to heat them so the cheese is melted hot. Don't overcook. Serve with rice and sweet and sour sauce. Good as an appetizer, or meal.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large, heavy saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, imitation crabmeat, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, Worcestershire sauce and green onions.

  • Place approximately 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture in the center of each wonton wrapper.

  • Place egg whites in a small bowl. Using the fingers, spread egg white over two edges of the wonton wrappers. Fold into triangles and press to seal edges.

  • In small batches, deep fry the wontons until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve warm.

Based on everyone else's suggestions I doubled the cream cheese (four bricks total) and these were awesome. It made a ton of wontons (more than one package of wrappers). I deep-fried half and them steamed the rest in my steamer for 12 minutes -- they came out wonderful (and no fat from the oil). Some people preferred the fried others preferred the steamed -- every single one was eaten. Yum! Read More

We used the little salad shrimp instead of crab and minced it in the processor before blending all the ingredients together. They turned out great!! Next time we make them (oh yes there will be many more next times for this recipe!) we are going to scale back the recipe first of all because I ran out of wrappers with half the filling left and use less sesame oil and worchestire sauce and add pepper and see how they turn out. I also wonder how these would taste with a little wasabi worked in.... mmm lots of possibilities with this gem of a recipe! I agree with the other reviewers in that you can't put too much filling or they will leak but I found that when they start to leak they are ready to come out of the oil anyway. Thanks so much!:) Read More

I make my own crab rangoons all the time...we like a litle more stuffing in ours than the restaurants around here add. I read the reviews and decided to change up the recipe just a little. I omitted the w. sauce and reduced the sesame oil just a little. We really liked the results. Thanks for something different. Read More

These are soooo addicitve. They take a little time but are well worth it. The flavors come together so well. I doubled the recipe for these last time I made them and froze about half. They freeze very well after frying. When I'm craving for them I just pop them out of the freezer and into the oven or toaster oven. Read More

I threw all my ingredients in the food processor to acheive a more even distribution of ingredients on this recipe. If I change anything next time it'll be to add four times as much cream cheese (or rather cut everything by 3/4 except the cream cheese) in order to acheieve a crab rangoon more like those in the restaurants I go to. Otherwise it was quick easy and awesome!!! Thank you for posting this recipe. Read More
