Crab Rangoons, See Ya Real Soon!
I love Crab Rangoons. I can't go get Chinese food and not get Crab Rangoons. We feel like the amount of Chinese restaurants around us are slim. Instead of giving into convenience to get Chinese food down the street, we decided we'd try to make our own Chinese food one day. I found this tasty recipe that I would like to share with you.
1 Quart Frying Oil (I used Canola)
1 8oz Package Cream Cheese, softened
12 oz Crab Meat, drained and flaked (it's ok to use fresh imitation crab and in small chunks)
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Paprika
2 Tbsp Water Chestnuts, drained and chopped
1-2 Scallions, chopped finely
1 14oz Package Wonton Wrappers
Heat oil to 375 degrees f in a large pan.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix Cream Cheese, Crab Meat, Garlic Powder, Paprika, Water Chestnuts and Scallions. Place about 1 teaspoon of the mix into Wonton Wrapper. Wet edges of the Wonton wrapper, fold over and seal edges together.
Fry Wontons in small batches until golden brown (about 3-5 minutes). Serve hot.
Original recipe found on Allrecipes.com by lauvan. I just added the scallions. Fresh chives may be used in place of scallions.
