Almost Authentic Crab Rangoons

After searching and searching for a crab rangoon recipe, I was able to make my version with great success. I hope you enjoy these tasty tidbits I made for my New Year celebration.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp powder sugar
  • 1 – 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 green onions, minced
  • 1 cup chopped crab meat
  • wonton wrappers
    ———–
    oil for frying

 

Instructions
After cream cheese softens at room temperature, combine powder sugar and cream cheese in a large bowl and mix well. Next add soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic powder, and minced green onions. Then add crab meat.
Place a teaspoon of filling in the middle of the wrapper, wet all four edges and fold one corner to opposite corner and seal. Repeat with other two corners to seal Rangoon.
Fry about 3-4 at a time at 350 degrees for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
Drain on paper towel.
Summary
The first time I made this recipe, it took me nearly 2 hours between cooking and prepping. Everyone in my family found them to be close to authenticity, if not better than the local restaurant.
Easy to make.
