Crab Rangoons - Deep Fried


You know how you are supposed to judge a restaurant by their bathroom? I judge a Chinese restaurant by their crab rangoons!  When Kevin and I purchased our new Oster deep fryer, one of the main reasons was to make homemade crab rangoons aka Cheese wontons.

This recipe was very simple. The deep fryer was a little intimidating at first, but I highly recommend this brand. It has a closed cover - the oil heats up within 10 minutes - and it is very idiot proof. It did cook a little faster than we predicted, so next time we will watch these a little more carefully! 

This specific recipe was adapted from Rasa Malaysia < original recipe link.

Yield: 20 Crab Rangoons
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes per batch (until golden brown)
*Uses a deep fryer to cook this recipe

20 wonton sheets - These are found in the produce section of your grocery store, usually by the mushrooms.
2 oz imitation lump crab meat, finely chopped
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, room temperature
1 tbs powdered sugar (confectioners)
Shake of Garlic Salt
Salt & pepper, to taste
Scallions (or chives), finely chopped
Dipping sauce - Wasabi mixed with soy sauce - OR - dumpling sauce


1. In a mixing bowl, blend the crab, cream cheese, sugar, salt, pepper and scallions.

2. Place 1 tbs of mixture on center on wonton sheet. Fold wonton on each side to seal, like shown below.

3. Once oil is preheated in deep fryer (about 375 degrees), cook wontons until golden brown, about 1 minute.










We also had to experiment with Mozzarella sticks & french fries in the deep fryer - Perfect!
