12 appetizers


  • 1 6-8 ounce can crabmeat, drained and flaked

  • ½ 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened

  • ¼ cup chopped green onions

  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 egg

  • 12 wonton wrappers

  • Vegetable oil for deep-frying

  • Sweet-and-sour sauce


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
