Crab Wontons

Ingredients

1/2 lb of lump crab meat
1/2 lb of cream cheese, softened
dash of soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 scallions, chopped
1 tsp ginger, powdered
1 package of Wonton skins (available in Asian markets)
2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
Canola oil
Simple and delicious appetizer that is good served with a variety of dipping sauces.
  • Combine crab meat, cream cheese, soy sauce garlic, scallions and ginger. Gently mix well.
  • Place about 1 tsp of mixture on each wonton square. (less is more)
  • Fold into triangles and brush inside edges with the egg yolk and seal the wonton tightly, taking care to remove air for the ┬ápackage.
  • Heat 3 to 4 inch of oil in a large sauce pan or deep fryer. Bring oil temp to 350 to 360 degrees.
  • Add wontons a few at a time and fry for about 30 seconds or until golden brown.
  • Remove wontons and drain on a wire rack and ┬áserve.
  • Note: It is preferable to drain fried foods on a wire rack rather than on paper towels. Your food will retain its crispiness longer.
