If you've never thought about making a homemade crab rangoon recipe, now's the time. A few simple ingredients and quick frying time are all that's needed.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl combine the crab, cream cheese, green onions, soy sauce, and garlic. In a small bowl, beat together egg and 1 Tbsp water.

  • To fill wrappers, place a wonton wrapper with a point toward you. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of filling just below the center. Brush edges of wrapper with the egg mixture. Fold the wrapper over to make a triangle. Press firmly to seal.

  • In a wok or large skillet heat 1 1/2 to 2 inches oil to 365°F. Add wontons to oil, a few at a time, and cook 1 to 2 minutes or until golden, turning once. Use a slotted spoon to remove to paper towels to drain. Keep warm in a 200°F oven while frying remaining wontons.

  • Serve warm with sweet-and-sour sauce.


Fry wontons as soon as they are filled. If they stand too long, the wrappers will soften and leak when cooked.
