Crunchy & Creamy Crab Rangoon Recipe – Crabmeat and cream cheese wontons make excellent appetizers. Leave out the water chestnuts, if desired. Serve with your favorite Asian-style dipping sauces.



1 quart oil for deep frying
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 (6 ounce) cans crabmeat, drained and flaked
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons water chestnuts, drained and chopped
1 (14 ounce) package wonton wrappers


Step 1
In a large, heavy sauce pan heat oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Step 2
In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, crabmeat, garlic powder, paprika and water chestnuts.

Step 3
Place approximately 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture in the center of wonton wrappers. Moisten wrapper edges with water, fold over the mixture and pinch to seal.

Step 4
In small batches, fry the wontons 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown.
