Crab Rangoons

This is one of my favorite appetizers when I go to  a Sushi restaurant. I learned recently, that they aren’t Japanese at all, but an american invention. They are so good it doesn’t really matter! They aren’t exactly easy, but worth the effort!

Crab Rangoon Ingredient
8 oz cream cheese (softened to room temp)
8 oz crab meat (you can substitute krab/artificial crab)
1 tsp onion power
1 tsp garlic power
1-2 scallions, sliced
1 package of 24 wonton skins

Crab Rangoon Method:
Combine the cream cheese, crab meat, onion powder, garlic powder and green onion.


Place approximately 1 Tbls crab mixture into the wonton and form the rangoon.


I found this video that helped me form the rangoons in traditional style.


It’s much easier to fry these in a small pan with deep oil. The guy in the video does them in a cast iron pan, but a deep fryer or deeper pan works best for me.  Here is how I fried them!


You can’t eat just one! So good!  I like to serve these with a sweet chili sauce.  I use Maggi Sweet Chili Sauce! It’s great! My family thought I made the sauce myself!


Ciao! Mike.
