Crab Rangoons

30 May

What is your favorite place to order take out from? Pizza? Italian? Chinese? I always loved getting chinese take out as a kid. Now that I am an adult, I don’t eat chinese take out nearly as much as I used to. One thing I like to order from the chinese take out is Crab Rangoons. As you may have read before I am a big seafood lover and I am also a cheese lover! All types of cheese (except bleu). Not every chinese takeout sells them. I have been wanting to make these at home for a while and I finally decided to go for it. I am so glad I did. They were Delicious and also very easy. This is a great appetizer for a dinner party. You can prep them first and stick them in the fridge until they are ready to fry.

Crab Rangoons

8 oz Crabmeat Special

8 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese (Softened)

3 Scallions chopped very fine

1 1/2 tsp Minced ginger

1 tsp soy sauce

1 tbsp Sweet chilli sauce

1 package Wonton Wrappers

1/2 tsp Sriracha

1/4 cup Vegetable oil (FOR FRYING)


1. Mix all (except oil) ingredients in a bowl until combined.

2. Place Wonton wrappers individually on parchment paper.

3. Put about a tablespoon of filling in the middle of each wrapper and fold as instructed on wonton package.

4. Heat 1/4 cup vegetable oil in a frying pan.

5. Place wontons in pan and fry until golden brown. About 3 mins on each side.

6. Remove from pan and place on plate or bowl layered with paper towel to absorb excess oil.
