Crab RangoonMy kids love crab rangoon...who am I kidding, so do I?! ;) The crunchy outside and creamy inside dipped in a sweet and sour sauce is just delicious. I have a little allergy thing going on with some shellfish, so I limit my consumption and, of course, avoid the ones that I have had a reaction to all together. Anyway, all that to say that we made these using imitation crab and they were delicious. You can use whatever you prefer, though!
|Crab Rangoon fresh from the fryer.|
1 pouch (usually 6-8 ounces) crab or imitation crab
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2-3 cloves, minced garlic
1/2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
dash of white pepper
1 package wonton skins (usually available in the produce section of your store)
1 egg, beaten with just a little water
Thoroughly combine first 6 ingredients. Lay wonton wrapper out on a cutting board (I do about 6 at a time). Place 1/2-1 tsp filling in the center of the wonton. Use a pastry brush and brush all of the sides with the egg wash and then bring all of the edges together to make a pouch. Seal well and push air out (I did not do a good job at pushing the air out and these were a little puffy - delicious nonetheless). Fry at 350 degrees F until golden brown and crisp. Let drain on a paper towel lined plate. Serve hot with Sweet & Sour Sauce.
