These crab rangoons aka crab wontons are a mixture of crab meat, cream cheese, soy sauce, garlic, and sugar wrapped in won ton wrappers. A Chinese-American classic appetizer that is delicious and super easy to make!
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 3/4 cups crab meat
- 2 scallions finely sliced
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder optional
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 2 tsp sugar or to taste
- 24 won ton wrappers
- oil for frying
- water for sealing
In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese, garlic powder, 1 tsp sugar, scallions, and soy sauce. Taste the filling and add more sugar if you like it sweeter. I added 2 tsp but start with 1 tsp.
Fold in the crab meat. Place the wonton wrappers on a cutting board and fill each wonton with 2 tsp of crab filling.
Brush the corners with water and pinch the corners together. Make sure it's nicely sealed so the filling doesn't escape.
Fry in 350-degree oil for about 1 minute, 30 seconds on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.
- Don't soften the cream cheese otherwise, the filling may be too runny.
- Serve with sweet chili dipping sauce.
