Crab rangoons are basically crab and cream cheese wontons. They are popular appetizer in Chinese restaurants all across the country and are one of the easiest things to make. Crab rangoons are packed with fresh crab taste and super creamy cheese oozes out as you bite into them. You can substitute the rangoons with imitation crab to get more of the fast food chinese restaurant flavor, but in opinion the real crab is so much better. These are really fun to make with the whole family, just don’t let the little kids around the oil! The crab rangoons can be made a ahead and even frozen for dinners or snacks down the road. Check out the recipe below in post.
Let cream cheese warm up to room temperature for about 30 minutes for ease of mixing. In a bowl mix the crab meat, cream cheese, green onions, garlic and fish sauce. Mix until we combined.
Lay out wonton wrappers on a clean cutting board. Place 1-2 teaspoons worth of mixture onto each wonton wrapper. Brush the edges with water and fold up all four corners. Press each of the 4 sides to make a 4 sided star.. Make sure they are sealed with the air pushed out.
Heat oil to 350 degrees and fry the rangoons in small batches until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Be careful not to splash the oil as you put them into the hot oil. Remove with tongs or skimmer and let cool on paper towels.
Serve warm with sweet chili sauce, duck sauce or any other of your favorite dipping sauces.
