Crab Wontons

We love wontons! Fun for lunch, a perfect appetizer, and so many options to fill! Here is my recipe for Crab Wontons, stay tuned for even more wonton recipes.

Recipe - Crab Wontons


Ingredients
  • 1 package of wonton wrappers
  • 1 bunch of green onions, washed and chopped
  • 1 8oz brick of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 pkg of imitation crab meat, or 1 can of crab meat
  • Oil for frying

Step 1
If you are using a can of crab meat - drain and flake; if you are using imitation crab meat chop very finely. I actually did mine in the magic bullet as I was going for almost a paste, it worked out well.

Step 2
Mix together crab, cream cheese and green onions.
Alternative: For the kids I did a few with just cream cheese and onion and some with just cream cheese - all are delicious

Step 3
Start a 1-2cm of oil heating in your pan on medium heat

Step 4

Spread out wontons, put a small amount of filling in the middle of each. Do not over fill or they will not close for frying. Wet all for sides with water, fold into a triangle and bring the two corners together

Step 5
When oil is hot, drop 6-8 wontons in the oil at a time, it takes less than a minute on each side for the wontons to brown. When brown on all sides remove from oil and drain on paper towel.

Step 6
Serve hot, on their own or with any number of sauces - chili, sweet and sour, thai, plum

These can be made ahead of time and reheated in the oven, they will get a touch chewy when reheated
