  • 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.
