  • 1 package wonton wrappers (50 count)
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 6 oz. crab meat, drained and flaked
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese, crab meat, green onions, garlic, soy sauce, and sesame oil until well combined.
  2. Lay a wonton wrapper flat on a clean surface. Place a heaping teaspoon of the crab mixture in the center of the wrapper.
  3. Fold the wrapper in half, sealing the edges to form a triangle. Pinch the edges together to ensure a tight seal.
  4. Repeat the process with the remaining wrappers and crab mixture.


  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Fry the Crab Rangoons in small batches until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per batch.
  3. Remove the Crab Rangoons from the oil with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

Tips and Tricks:

  1. To keep the filling inside the wontons, make sure to seal the edges tightly.
  2. For a crispy texture, lightly brush the wontons with egg wash before frying.
  3. You can also bake the wontons in the oven for a healthier alternative to frying. Bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.


  1. For a spicy twist, add diced jalapenos to the crab mixture.
  2. Replace the crab meat with chopped shrimp for a shrimp rangoon.
